November 22, 2017

The Price of Redemption

Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJB)   For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

What portion of redemption can a man pay for himself?  Now, that’s a great question which has an absolute and spiritually awesome answer!  A man cannot purchase any portion of his salvation.  The cost has already been paid in full by the willing spirit of ...

Unmerited Favor, Spiritual Beauty, and Blessings

Romans 5:6 (KJB)   For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Salvation is a work of God inside the softened heart of man.  This work is always unmerited or undeserved.

A work of salvation is accomplished inside a weak man who is without strength.  A man who cannot ever obtain salvation on his own merit or strength for spiritual regeneration of a heart takes the power and presence ...

Yes, my own works, and your ...

According To His Power

John 1:12 (KJB)   But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Divine Intervention Was Required

Isaiah 59:15-16 (KJB)   Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.  16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.

God is sorely displeased with mankind.  Man’s heart is only evil continually.  There is no sense of ...

No Condemnation

No Condemnation

John 3:17 (KJB)   For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

God had a purpose for His Only Son since the beginning.  He was to be sent to this world not to condemn it, but for delivering the gift of salvation.

The righteousness of God always stands in stark contrast to wickedness and evil at work in this world.

The purpose of the law of God ...

Separate unto Salvation

James 1:21 (KJB)   Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

This verse draws a certain line.  It calls for man to make a clean cut from all kinds of evil and wickedness and be set apart for things of God.  It does not say separate from some things but clearly instructs mankind to step away, move apart from, or separate themselves ...

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJB)   Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

God offers mankind a NEW life in Jesus Christ.  This new life is available as a gift through the finished work of His Son Jesus Christ.  You can do nothing to earn or purchase a new spiritual life for yourself or others.  It is a personal journey fueled by faith ...

Grace and Mercy Avenue

1 Timothy 1:15 (KJB)   This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

Paul clearly understood his humble position and great spiritual need and was inspired to pen this eye-opening verse of truth!

Paul was testifying about the old nature of sin and rebellion at work in his heart as he lived apart from the supernatural power of Jesus Christ. It ...

Determining Your Eternal Destiny

Determining Your Eternal Destiny

2 Corinthians 9:15 (KJB)   Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

Al glory and honor goes to God for His free gift.  It is only because of His goodness and grace that you and I have anything in this world.

The whereabouts of our eternal address is tied into our acceptance or denial of His free gift.

All mankind receives the same opportunity to personally take God’s unspeakable gift and unwrap it inside the confines of his ...
