  THE ROCK OF MY SALVATION

 

On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. I am completely assured, that my salvation was purposed by God, before a star ever twinkled in the sky (Eph.1:4). How can I be so sure you say? God’s word say’s so! And I believe God’s word! You see that’s the real difference between the true children of God, and the rest of the religious world! God’s people believe God’s word! We believe we are broke and have nothing to offer God! We believe our salvation is of God alone, through Christ alone! We believe it is not of our will, but of God who sheweth mercy (Rom.9:16). And the Lord’s word say’s that “FAITH IS A GIFT” (Eph.2:8,9). God chose a people, in Christ before the foundation of the world, Christ paid the price of their sins, by sacrificing Himself on that cruel cross! He then arose, death could not hold Him, and he sit’s on His throne today, making intersession for all those that the Father hath given Him! My salvation is Rock solid, because                                           SALVATION IS OF THE LORD!

THY FIRST LOVE

 (Rev.2:4)

Can you go back, to the time the lord first spoke to your heart, through the preaching of His Gospel? Remember how it was? like the demonic man, sitting at the feet of Jesus, in his right mind! I believe that is what this is talking about. For some, we became involved with the church, doing this or that to do whatever part we have been blessed to do, cooking, cleaning, grounds keeping, leading the music, playing the piano, bringing devotionals, teaching studies, even preaching a message. Have we become so wrapped up in spreading the Gospel, that our works are more forefront might I say, than He who is the Gospel? If your one of His? bought and paid for with His own blood! He will not leave you there in that condition! He may let us wonder off for a time only to bring us back again by His word! Through His word, we learn our weakness, and see His might! Through His word, we are taught “LORD, TURN US AND WE SHALL BE TURNED”. Through His word, we are reminded of His wonderful mercy! Through His word, we see His gracious love for His people! And we remember “OH HOW I LOVE JESUS, BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED ME”
