Finding God's Perfect Will For Your Life

(Rom. 12:1-2) “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Is it possible to know the will of God for your life?  In the above verse the Apostle Paul says we can. 1) By Presenting your body back to God. God just doesn’t want our bodies, He wants them given back to Him of our own free will, as a sacrifice presented in the old testament. He wants our sacrifice to be holy and acceptable, but also surrendered unto God and His perfect will. 2) Transforming your mind.  Jesus told his disciples that they could only serve one master, and so in order to serve God they needed to choose God over this world. For you to know the will of God for your life, we must turn your mind and heart away from the world and onto God. For God desires a renewed mind; one that is given over to His will, and way of His Word. And so, a transformed life begins in the mind. 3) Prove your gift. Every born-again believer has been given a “gift” to serve with from the Holy Spirit that lives within him after salvation. Once the gift is practiced in the Spirit, we will see that it is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God for our lives. Whereby God will give us the “grace” or power to use it once we are surrendered to doing it !

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…

Justified By Faith Alone

(Rom. 3:23) "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."Have you ever asked yourself what this verse means? Well it means that if you are a human being no matter how good or righteous you are, because of your sin, your righteousness and glory can never equal or be good enough to get you into heaven. Why, because you fall short of the standard that God has set up, and that standard is the righteousness and glory of Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, God gave the world the ten commandments not to save, but to explain to us why and how it is that we fall short. (3:20) "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." And that is why God sent Jesus, for man from birth is under the condemnation or judgment of God. We therefore need God's help to cover our sin to stand righteous before God.Therefore, to be justified and free from the condemnation for  sin, God sent Jesus to di…
