A Thursday Morning Message!

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Aloha Everyone! Thusfar, we have seen what the Bible says about man's part in salvation, concerning Hearing, Believing and Repentance. Now let's look at man's part in Obedience to God's Word.

In order to be forgiven, we must follow through on our repentance by doing what God says. May people agree with everything up to this point but fail to do what God says. Let's note what the Bible has to say:
1. Heb 5:9 - Jesus is the author of eternal salvation to all who OBEY Him.
2. Rom 6:17-18 - When we OBEY from the heart the teaching delivered (The Gospel of Christ), we are made free from sin.
3. 1 Pet 1:22 - We purify our souls in OBEYING the truth, and God's word is truth (John 17:17).
4. Acts 10:34-35 - Whoever fears (Respeccts) God and works (Does, Obey) righteousness, is accepted by Him.
It is simply not true that nothing man does is necessary to salvation. We'll look at some more passages tomorrow. To be continued! May the blessings of heaven be upon each of you today, Vic.

    It is very important that we hold each other accountable. It is so easy to talk the talk, but forget to walk the walk.

A Thursday Morning Prayer!

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Merciful and Loving Father, God of this universe, our God, show us how to do your will. Teach us to know your will, to be joyful always, to pray constantly, to give thanks in all circumstances, for this is your will for us in Christ Jesus. Enable us to always do your will in this regard, even when we do not see answers to our prayers as we would like. Help us to grow in the knowledge and application of your will in our lives, no matter what is going on in our lives. We know and understand that you are greater than anything we can face in this life. We praise you; we praise your holy name! This we pray and ask this morning in Jesus' precious name, Amen! May heaven blessings be upon each of you today, Vic.

A Wednesday Morning Message!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Greetings Everyone! Yesterday we looked at man's part in repentance. Let's continue to see what else the Bible has to say:

Jesus said in Luke 13:3 and 5, that unless we repent we shall all likewise perish. Repentance is necessary for salvation, and it's man's responsibility to repent or reap God's wrath. Luke 24:47 tellls us that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in Jesus' name to all nations. Why? Acts 17:30 tells us that at one time God winked at man's ignorance, but now commands all men everywhere to repent. Acts 3:19 instructs us to repent and be converted that our sins may be blotted out. Acts 5:31 tells us that God has exhalted Jesus to be a Prince and Savior to give forgiveness to us. 2 Peter 3:9 reminds us that God is not slack concerning his promises, but is long-suffering to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. The bottom-line is that unless we repent we shall perish. That's something to think about! May God bless each of you as yopu repent and turn to him for forgiveness, Vic.

A Tuesday Morning Message!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Goooooood Morning Everyone! We have seen God's part in our salvation, and man's part in hearing and believing. Now, let's look at man's part in REPENTANCE!

God offers us the opportunity to repent, to change our life, in order that He may provide salvation to us. But it's up to man to accept or reject that offer. 2 Cor 7:10 tells us that godly sorrow produces repentance which leads us to salvation. In Acts 2:38, people were instructed to repent and be baptized for the remission of their sins. Repentance is a change of heart and mind in which one turns from sin and does what God says (Matt 21:28-29). Unless we make this decision to follow Jesus and obey Him, God will not save us. God offers forgiveness and the way unto salvation, and man needs to repent. Now that's something to think about! May heaven's blessings be upon each of you today, Vic.
