Faith — The Essence Of Christian Victory

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, not height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 (NASB)
Jesus is able to deliver. No outside force can add anything. All the trying, all the striving, all the enduring cannot add one thing. We overcome the world through faith in Jesus Christ. We overcome the flesh through faith in Jesus Christ. We overcome the devil through faith in Jesus Christ. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4 (NASB)
Faith is the power that puts the devil to flight. Faith is the key that unlocks the door to victory. Faith is the essence of Christian victory. You will never be a successful, victorious, happy, fruit-bearing Christian until you recognize that God does not honor your effort to overcome, but your faith in Him to furnish victory through the power of the salvation purchased through the death and blood of Jesus Christ.

An Unfailing Blessing

All of our errors and failures that
we made in the course of the day
Are freely forgiven at nighttime
when we kneel down
and earnestly pray,
So seek the Lord in the morning
and never forget Him at night,
For prayer is an unfailing blessing
that makes every burden
seem light.

The Secret Of Peace

The secret of peace is to give every care to God.

Was Jesus A Good Man?

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.'” John 8:58 (NASB)
If Jesus was not the Son of God, no preacher should ever call His name from the pulpit. If Jesus was not God in the flesh, no preacher should ever end a prayer in His name or even mention His name when praying to Almighty God. If He was not God — He was not good.
If Jesus was just a good man and not the God-Man, He had no authority to forgive sins. And if Jesus did not have the authority to forgive sins, I do not know where to recommend that you go for forgiveness.
There is no other who would dare claim the authority to forgive sins. If Jesus were not all He claimed to be, you must carry your load of sin all the days of your life and with it face a holy God at the end of life’s journey. The finite can never satisfy the infinite. Man cannot satisfy a holy God. Deity can be satisfied only by Deity. If Jesus were not divine He could never have satisfied the demands of Almighty God. It takes holiness to satisfy holiness.
“Good and upright is the LORD; therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, and He teaches the humble His way. All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth to those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.” Psalm 25:8-10 (NASB)

The Difference

Redbird's Roost

I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day:
I had so much to accomplish
that I didn’t have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me,
and heavier came each task.
“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered,
He answered, “You didn’t ask.”

I wanted to see joy and beauty,
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn’t show me,
He said, “But you didn’t seek.”

I tried to come into God’s presence;
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
“My child you didn’t knock.”

I woke up early this morning,
and paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish
that I had to take time to pray.

The Knowledge Of Christ Is Fundamental To Christian Hope

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3 (NASB)
The knowledge of Christ brings faith, faith in Christ brings hope; and we hope in God because we have heard the good news of the atonement. Apart from Christ there is no hope.
Without the knowledge of Jesus Christ and Him crucified, man cannot believe unto salvation, he cannot possess hope in God, he cannot pray acceptably. The only way man can converse with God and have fellowship with Him in prayer, and the only way man can hope for God to hear his prayer is by living faith in Christ our Mediator.
