Even though we do not see it yet, all of life’s troubles, sorrows, and pains have already been solved on the cross. Let us therefore glory in cross!
Do you believe on Jesus? Then, rest in hope for your faith and belief did not cause your salvation. You may have doubts and fears that still come into your mind, but your faith points to an objective fact that Jesus died for you!
Faith Mixed with Doubt
Our faith does not cause our salvation but it assures us that it is real and true.
We are secured in the love of God by the finished work of Jesus Christ but let us not live in unthankfulness and disobedience. We still have to to “deal with God” here in time, and he expects us to be about HIS business not our own.
Face Like a Flint
When we face trials and tribulations we need to have the same faith in God that Jesus had in the Father.
The Disciples’ Failure
We should learn from this that trusting in God is the right thing to do but that does not mean that life suddenly becomes easier. In fact, when we do trust God and move toward Him, the devil doubles down on his attacks. Therefore, we should pray more, fast more, and trust God more!
Help Thou Mine Unbelief
Our faith comes from Jesus. Therefore, the object of our faith should be Christ, and Christ alone.
Satan “Doubles Down”
We should have a sound mind that knows Satan hates us but Jesus wins, — every single time.
Faithless and Perverse Generation!
If you ask me, this is a pretty light rebuke considering who Jesus is talking to and what they have done!
Triumphal Feast • 1st John Series 15. “Growing in Belief” pt. 2
1st John Series • 15. Growing in Belief 1st John 5:13-19 pt.2 Today’s edition is the conclusion of part 15 in our 1st John Series. The theme of this message is growing in belief. God does not intend for us to be stagnant or unfruitful with the grace He bestows on us. When we believe God and trust Him, it moves us to act more like Christ. When we do this our belief is made stronger because we have proven to ourselves that what God says is true.
