The Spirit is a Guarantee

guarantee sealedIn the previous post on God’s promises, we talked about the Holy Spirit promised by God to those who believe to help us, guide, pray for us, convict us.  The Spirit lives in us to help us grow.  God also reminds us that it is His great grace that gives us salvation.  Nothing we can do will earn our way into heaven or gain God’s favor.  He did it all.  He gave us grace, the undeserved favor.  Christ went to the cross to take away our sins.  His work saves us.  It is through faith we are saved.  And He gives us the Spirit as a guarantee of our salvation.  Continue reading “The Spirit is a Guarantee”

God’s Promise: The Holy Spirit

Anyone who believes in Christ is a new creation.  As one becomes a believer, the Holy Spirit gives him strength as He lives inside Him.  Not sure how this works, but I know the Spirit works in us to guide, us, to pray for us, to convict us to do the right thing and change from doing what’s wrong.  Sometimes He gives us the words to say as we share what God has done for us or when we have conflicts or whatever.

God’s Promises: Our Inheritance

What a blessing it is to know that we have an inheritance in heaven.  Jesus came to this earth to pay for our sins by dying on the cross.  He conquered death and was raised from the grave.  By His grace we are saved if we believe in Him.  We are assured that God always keeps His promises, and He promised eternal life and as adopted sons and daughters (as mentioned in the previous post), we have an inheritance.  Continue reading “God’s Promises: Our Inheritance”

God’s Promise: Adoption

adoption-1631089-1279x853One of the greatest promises God has given us is adoption to be children of God.  For those of us who believe, He has accepted us to be part of His family and heirs of eternal life (more on this next time).  He didn’t decide to adopt us because of our love for Him or all the great things that we have done, but because He loved us, because Christ died for us that we may be sons of God.  I talked last time about being a sponsor for children and how missionaries go to a strange land and accept children as their own, sharing God’s love.  How much more does God love us and accept us as His children.  What an awesome thing!

God’s Promise: Unconditional Love

In this series, I hope to remind everyone of God’s promises.  It is something I need to remind myself from time to time.  God always keeps His promises and what He says is always true.  It is something we should always aspire to do.  As Jesus said, “let your yes be yes, and your no, no.”

 

Today, we will discuss God’s unconditional love.  He tells us that He will always love us.  Our Father demonstrated that by sending His only Son to this earth to die for us.  Jesus gave His life freely so that we may live.  There is no greater love than that. Continue reading “God’s Promise: Unconditional Love”
