Adorned with God's Salvation

06 Apr 2016

Luke 15:22—“But the father said to his slaves, Bring out quickly the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.”

Note 7 on sandals says: “Signifying the power of God’s salvation to separate the believers from the dirty earth. Both the ring and the sandals were signs of a free man. The adornment, consisting of the robe on the body, the ring on the hand, and the sandals on the feet, allowed the poor prodigal to match his rich father and qualified him to enter the father’s house and feast with the father. God’s salvation adorns us with Christ and the Spirit that we may enjoy the riches in His house.”

No Longer Enemies

04 Apr 2016

Have you ever thought, “Why do I experience so much unrest? Why do I feel as if I’m not at peace with myself?”

Although you try different ways to find a solution, the inner peace you yearn for seems unattainable. We’ve all felt this disquiet within, regardless of our background, education, or social status. Why is that? The source of this feeling is rooted in a fundamental problem—we’re not at peace with God. And when we’re not at peace with God, it’s impossible for us to be at peace with ourselves.

Do You Taste God in the Word?

28 Mar 2016

We need to eat food to sustain our physical life and to keep us healthy. But just because we have to eat doesn’t mean it’s a tedious chore. In fact, eating is an enjoyment to us, especially when the food is tasty.

Similarly, the Bible tells us that God’s Word sustains us and keeps us spiritually healthy. But how do we feel about reading the Word of God? Is our time in God’s Word a dry, tedious duty we must fulfill? Or is it a time of enjoyment and nourishment? God desires that our time in His Word would be not a duty but a delight.

Faith and Love

23 Mar 2016

Galatians 5:6—“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails anything nor uncircumcision, but faith avails, operating through love.”

Note 3 on love: “Love is related to our appreciation of Christ. Without such an appreciation, faith cannot operate. The hearing of faith awakens our loving appreciation, and the more we love the Lord, the more faith operates to bring us into the riches, the profit, of the all-inclusive Spirit.”

Have you ever been troubled by questions like these: Can you lose your salvation? Can you be “unsaved” if you do something wrong or if you sin?

It’s extremely important for us believers to be clear about several fundamental matters. One of these is having the assurance that we’re saved once we believe in Christ. Another fundamental matter we must be clear about is the security of our salvation. Just how secure is our salvation? What safeguards it? Does its security depend on us? Can we lose our salvation?

Let’s get into five points that address the security of our salvation.

Although we believed in the Lord Jesus and received Him as our Savior, at times we may have wondered, “How do I know I’m saved?” Sometimes we feel we’re definitely saved; at other times, we’re not so sure. When we’re tossed back and forth between certainty and uncertainty, it’s difficult for us to progress in our Christian life.

But we don’t have to be unsure, since God provides three clear ways for us to have the full assurance of salvation. In this post we’ll discuss these ways.

Faith in Jesus Christ

09 Mar 2016

Galatians 2:16—“And knowing that a man is not justified out of works of law, but through faith in Jesus Christ, we also have believed into Christ Jesus that we might be justified out of faith in Christ and not out of the works of law, because out of the works of law no flesh will be justified.”

Note 1 on faith in Jesus Christ: Faith in Jesus Christ denotes an organic union with Him through believing. This is related to the believers’ appreciation of the person of the Son of God as the most precious One. The believers are infused with the preciousness of Christ through the gospel preached to them. This Christ becomes in them the faith by which they believe and the capacity to believe through their appreciation of Him. This faith creates an organic union in which they and Christ are one.”
