Not one in a hundred knows what salvation is—how to get it or when you will receive it. Don't be too sure you do! Here is the truth, made plain.
Everything that we go through has been engineered by God. We are His workmanship, created for good works, a response to the faith He has given us.
God has singled each one of us out individually, calling us, gifting us with capabilities, and preparing us for eternal life as members of His family.
God assumes the burden for our salvation, but we are obligated to yield to His workmanship—made manifest by good works, the effect of salvation.
God expects works from all He has called. We show our faithfulness and loyalty to God by our works or conduct - what we produce by what we have been given.
There is a direct relationship between loving Christ and doing the right works. God's love for us places us under a compelling obligation to reciprocate.
Righteousness consists of applying the Law's letter and/or intent. Sin constitutes a failure of living up to the standards of what God defines as right.
Misguided theologians have tried to create a false dichotomy between grace and works. We do works of obedience to build character, not to earn salvation.
Multiple billions of people have lived and died without even hearing the name of Jesus Christ. But God has distinct periods of judgment and resurrection.
God provides the gift before it is actually needed so that when it is needed, everything is prepared for the person to do as he has been commissioned to do.
In the combined history of Judah and Israel, when the leaders abandoned the covenants with God, the citizenry generally followed suit.
Jesus experienced the same temptations and suffering we do, qualifying Him for the role of High Priest, the bridge-builder between man and God.
Hard trials are not punishments from God for unrighteousness but tests of faith in which He is intimately involved to prepare us for the world to come.
Salvation is an ongoing work of God, obligating us to walk in the Spirit. If we do, we will be not captivated by the lusts of the flesh.
Pride is a perverted comparison that elevates one above another. Because of its arrogant self-sufficiency, it hinders our faith. Faith depends on humility.
