Greetings Everyone! We are looking at man's part in salvation. We have seen what the Bible says about man's part in HEARING and LEARNING. Now let's look at what the Bible says about FAITH!
Heb 11:1 tells that without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe God exist, and that He rewards those who diligently seek him. Rom 5:1 tells us that we are justified (Declared To Be Right With God) by God, by faith. The Bible describes different kinds of faith for man, but only one is acceptable unto God (James 2:19; John 12:42), and that is: those that believe God exist, that Jesus is the Christ and Savior, and those who OBEY and DO what he says, is saving faith (Luke 6:46). Faith where anyone believes God exist, and Jesus is the Savior, but does not OBEY Him, is not saving faith. So what is man's part in salvation, besides hearing the message from God's word: TO BELIEVE and OBEY what it says. To be continued! May the blessings of heaven be upon each and everyone of you today, In His Love, Vic
