God's Promise To Those Who Love Him

 (Rom. 8:28) “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” It takes a certain type of Christian to praise the Lord in all things, because that would mean that he/she would have to praise God for the bad as well as the good. The above verse however only works for those that love God, for if someone does not love and trust God in every situation, that person will become discouraged and even bitter in life. God wants all His children to believe in Him, but to also know that no matter what happens to them in this life, He has promises that we will see it turned for good if they will just love and trust Him. Too often God’s people think that God owes us an easy life, but just the opposite is taught in scripture. (John 16:33) “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” You see, even though we have trials as Christians, Jesus has promised us that “he will never leave us nor forsake us.” The “good” therefore that God promises in the above verse is the grace, help, strength, endurance, and victory that only He can give to the believer, so that we can both overcome and be victorious in this life. For He can and will turn all things for good for His glorious purpose.

Called By The Gospel Of God

(Rom. 1:16)  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just the biblical account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, but it’s also the power behind our salvation, our walk, and service for the Lord. 1) God’s gospel calls all men to salvation. All men, meaning even those who do not believe Him.God so loved man that He sent His prophets to preach salvation to man long before He came himself in Christ to show man the way. And so, from the very beginning of time God has been calling men to repent of sin and trust in Him and His Word. 2) God’s gospel call is to  “whosoever will.” It’s not just limited to the Jew, but it’s also available to anyone who desires forgiveness and peace with God. Unfortunately, although all men are called only a few answer back and find salvation. 3) God’s gospel calls every Christian to share it.It’s now our…

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…
