God’s Plan Includes Christian’s Work

Posted on Sep 2, 2022 in Articles

Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. James 2:24 God, from the beginning, has expected mankind to be both obedient and active. This is what we are talking about when we discuss Christian works. Sadly, many skew passages such as Ephesians 2:8-9 and teach “nothing we can or should do” as it pertains to salvation. However, in the same epistle, the faithful Christians are urged to “walk in love” and “be imitators” (Ephesians chapters 4 & 5). Also, it’s mentioned one must be in Christ and have redemption in His blood. According to the Bible, obedience to the...

God’s Plan Includes Christian’s Love

Posted on Aug 26, 2022 in Articles

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matthew 22:37-39  One statement I often find myself making is “if we love God and our fellow man, the rest will fall into place”. The idea is that if we possess the proper love, we will devote ourselves to the level we will find ourselves both committed and successful. With the total devotion we are to have to God, He will no doubt occupy the place in our...

God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Baptism

Posted on Aug 19, 2022 in Articles

And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16 God’s plan always included sinner’s baptism so that they might be added to the church (Acts 2:47). This may sound like a bold statement but God has always placed a significance on water as it pertained to salvation. In the Old Testament, water was often the key element of some type of physical deliverance. In 1 Peter 3:20b, we read about the flood and how it was water that saved the faithful, “while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by...

God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Confession

Posted on Aug 12, 2022 in Articles

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10 Confession of Christ as the son of God is a requirement of our souls’ salvation and before a person is ever immersed in baptism, we follow the example of scripture in Acts 8:36-37 which says, “And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be...

God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Repentance

Posted on Aug 5, 2022 in Articles

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles, Brethren, what shall we do? And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:37-38 God has always demanded that men recognize and repent from sin. Jonah 3:10 states, “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil which he said he would do unto them; and he did it not”. This verse really helps one...

God’s Plan Includes Sinner’s Faith

Posted on Jul 29, 2022 in Articles

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Acts 16:30-31 For one who is lost in their sins to ever take the steps necessary to enter into a right relationship with God, he or she must have faith. Hebrews 11:6 states, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. The Phillipian Jailor of Acts 16 sets for us a wonderful example.  What he had experienced convinced him...
