1 Corinthians 12 teaches us that believers are part of the ‘body of Christ’, but what does that mean? It, means we are untied in Christ and part of the family of God. The fact He refers to us as His body is because we were made in His image and all believers are one in Christ. May God Bless You, Amen.
1 John 3 tells us that God loves us so much that He sees us as his children or sons and daughters. It teaches us that as Christians the world may not understand us, as we are not called to be part of this world. “We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 1 John 3:14”. It is good news that we who know God has been born again and He loves us and we live in the light. May, we all grow in faith and the knowledge of God’s love, amen.
Romans 4, teaches us that we are forgiven of our sins through faith in God. It provides us with the example that even Abraham who lived thousands of years ago was forgiven by faith and not by working for his salvation. The verse puts it this way, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. – Romains 4:3”. May, God bless all of us and may we continue to walk in faith. Amen.
The bible teaches us that Christians should have the love of God in them because God is love. (1 John 4:16). God is loving and we should not walk in fear (1 John 4:18). The Bible also teaches us that God’s love is in our hearts (Romans 5:5) through the Holy Spirit in us. May God Bless us and help us all to walk in love. Amen
The Bible teaches us to, “sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (1 Peter 3:15).” A person might then ask, what does this mean? It, means that we who believe in Christ and trust in Him should be able to explain what we believe to others, in a kind and loving way. If and when we share the Gospel or ‘good news’ with others we are helping build up the Kingdom of God. Jesus came to give everyone in the world a chance to repent and believe in Him. It is through Christ only, “Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him. (1 Peter 3:22) that we are saved and have the chance to live with God in Heaven forever. May God Bless you and keep you in the love of Christ, Amen.
According to the Bible Jesus paid the price for our sins. After, he was betrayed by Judas to die on the cross the religious leaders tell us the money he received was, “…the price of blood”. Jesus was whipped and crucified on a Roman cross about 2,000 years ago for our sins. and by His “stripes ye were healed. (or saved) 1 Peter 2:24”. It is great news to know their is a God above that loves us so much that he died on the cross for us (John 3:16). May God Bless you, amen.
Paul tells us in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” But, what does that mean? Well, it should really teach us that we should be eager to spread the Gospel. The message that Christ died and rose from the dead for our sins is a message of hope and love. The Gospel or “Good News” is for everyone that believes or will believe. The Christian Jews can and are saved through faith and so can everyone else! May we all know him and believe in Him. Amen
Acts chapter 17 teaches us that it is a very noble thing to know the scriptures well. This means that when a preacher teaches something we should compare it to what the Word of God says to make sure it’s accurate. God is not a God of contradiction and what His Word says should be the final authority. May God inspire you to search His scriptures for truth. Amen
From Corinthians 15 we learn that Christ died and rose from the dead. Paul being very humble tells us that he was not worthy to be called a follower of Christ because he used to persecute the church. But, for Him and for us we learn it is by the grace of God that we have become saved. The Gospel is the good news that Christ the Risen Lord and Savior has given us new life in Him. It tells us that “..flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” but what does that mean? It means that in and of ourself we can do nothing to earn Heaven. Our flesh or sinful nature has separated us from God. We cannot inherit the Kingdom of God unless Christ be our Lord and Savior. If, we could have made it to Heaven without Christ then the whole point of Christ dying is minimized, but God died on the cross; Christ God in Flesh because their was no other way for our sins to be forgiven. Finally, the best part is the Bible teaches us to repent and believe. No, repentance doesn’t mean to be perfect but it does mean to admit to God we are flawed and we need a relationship with Him and we accept what He did 2,000 years ago on the cross. May, we all trust and follow Him daily. Amen
Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)”. The path to Heaven is found through Jesus Christ, He died for our sins and rose from the dead. This is good news that although we have been separated from God because of our sin, we are united with Him through Jesus. There, is one way and His name is Jesus. The Bible tells us “…God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:11”. The way to Heaven is very simple “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16:31)”. We can argue whether the Christian life is hard or easy but one thing it’s simple. God laid down a perfect plan of redemption through Jesus without such none of us could go to Heaven. Before Jesus came to earth “The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30).” God, has a day planned in which he will judge the world through Jesus Christ, God has guaranteed this will happen and proved it by raising Christ from the dead (Acts 17:31 tells us so). May, God bless and guide us all. Amen
