To understand salvation we HAVE to fully understand the first words of this verse (1 John 1:1). "Who was from the beginning". John is talking about Jesus Christ. He was there from the beginning; Before creation He was! And we HAVE to follow Him to know Him. To be changed by Him. To receive salvation thru Him!
There are many who fear or wonder about losing salvation. Is this actually possible? Does the Bible have strong counseling on this subject? When we inventory our thoughts of salvation, how much of the Word of God is being placed in our heart daily? Today's message will challenge us concerning eternal security.
God purchased each and every human being with the blood of Jesus Christ. All of the peoples' salvation is purchased with this blood. With Jesus' sacrifice. All we have to do is accept it. Jew and Gentile. Muslim and Buddhist. NOBODY is exempt from salvation. But we better be ready at all times for the day of the Lord. The Day of judgment is coming soon. Yesterday is in the past and tomorrow is uncertain. Focus on today. Today is the day of salvation.
Are you running the race, but forgot why you do it? One thing we can't forget it that we are His children. By professing faith in Him we automatically became His children. Being His children, we undergo His discipline. Any father disciplines his children. If you don't get disciplined by by God, you have to check your relationship with Him, as He disciplines those He loves.
How do you view baptism. Is it a ritual? Is it a Church Doctrine? What takes place in the water when people are baptized? It does not save you, but it is the start of your walk with Christ. It is the outward showing of what is happening in the heart. You HAVE to turn away from your old life and start living according to God's Word (Galatians 5:16-18)
