Take God at His Word


“What does Scripture say? ‘Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.’”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬. https://www.bible.com/111/rom.4.3.niv

We are saved by grace through faith alone! (Eph 2:8-9) 

We are not saved by rituals, nor the sacrifices we give, nor by anything that we think is good enough to earn God’s forgiveness. 

The salvation we receive is a gift. We can’t earn it. Nobody can.

The reason the Old Testament saints are saved is because they believed God. That is, they believed all that God said to them in their past and present. 

So when God talked about a future Savior, they took God at his word and believed him. I’m not saying that it was easy for them. But that is what ultimately saved them. 

And it’s what ultimately saves us too. Taking God at his word and believing him.

Thank you God for saving me!

Seeing the World in Black and White article

From Lance:

"I've been blessed by many Greg Morse articles at Desiring God over the years. This one is just fantastic. So honest. Touches on the heart issues and bitterness that can develop between all tribes. He really highlights the call upon Christ-followers to respond differently, and it's quite refreshing."

My thoughts after listening to Don Miller interview Bob Goff on his new book Dream Big.

Courage



In today's culture, it's easy to be cowered into silence or paralyzed by fear. We must be strong and courageous as God leads us to speak and act justly (with grace and truth. So let's do this! Deuteronomy 31:6 Joshua 1:7-9 Acts 23:11
