It’s in His righteousness we stand! The knowledge of Jesus Christ is the one who can redeem us, saves us from ourselves and the evil one. To draw close to Him is the beginning of wisdom. All that is good belongs to the Lord and to Him we focus our energy, our life, looking up instead of the chaos in the world. We will have trials and tribulation in the world but with God on our side we endure and go through it with the grace He bestows on us. By trusting Him, for we are His children and like little children He instructs us, chastises us, loves us to be one with Him. 1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Helping others to understand the love of God and to trust, as we trust the words from Jesus Himself; John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. He IS the only way to the Father. He is life itself, He is truth!
By showing our daily commitment to Christ ourselves, for “actions speaks louder than word’s”. Through our actions people see by example who we believe in, who we follow, emulate and we diligently bear the fruits of His Spirit in us. Galatians 5:22-23…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
John 15:2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
1 Corinthians 13:4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
Colossians 3:12-15 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
Romans 15:14 Now I [Paul], myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.
2 Peter 1:4 …To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
1 Corinthians 13:7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. In Christ who gives you His strength to conquer any mountain set before you. His law is in our hearts.
1 Timothy 1:8-11 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.
The law speaks of the flaws of our human nature living in a fallen world, in a world that has forgotten God. God is asking us to return to Him.
Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
Joel 2:13 So rend your heart, and not your garments;
Return to the Lord your God,
For He is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm.
As our actions deserve, if we repent and humbly seek Him.
2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
2 John 3 Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
Turn to and grow in Christ for the times are at hand for each of us to declare with whom we stand, with whom we put our trust in.
Thank you for visiting 🙂
May Grace and peace through the knowledge of Jesus Christ be with you all.
