Be axnious for nothing …

Christian –

If:
God is sovereign in His creation
God is sovereign over all of His created creatures
God is sovereign concerning His providence

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God … called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also did predestinate … He also called … He also justified … He also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? … For I am persuaded that [nothing – absolutely nothing] can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. | Romans 8:28-39 [adapted]

Then:
Why be afraid of what is going on in the world today?
Be at peace | God is in control.

Bible & Cross 03

It is finished! | John 19:30

Just think a little over two thousands years ago Jesus Christ died at Calvary’s cross for all of my sins (Romans 5:6-11): those I committed yesterday – those which I will bring about today – and unfortunately those which I will do tomorrow. O’ the Eternal Mercy of God – What/Who shall separate me from the love of Christ? | Nothing! Absolutely, Nothing! No – not even my sins …

Rejoice – The Lord is Nigh …

Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice! … The Lord is at hand. | Philippians 4:4-5

The Greek here for the word rejoice means to “be filled with joy” (the opposite of mourning). We are to “be filled with joy” always. No matter what comes our way, whether by sadness or happiness we are to “be filled with joy” not mourning. Why? Because “the Lord is at hand!” What an encouragement for believers. In every situation our Lord is nigh – to watch over us, to protect us, to keep us … “Again I say rejoice!”

Hallelujah, What a Savior …

For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast | Ephesians 2:8-9.

Note:
In God’s Word alone –
Salvation is by grace alone –
Salvation is through faith alone –
Salvation is in Christ alone –
All to the glory of God alone.

No Snatching Allowed …

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. | John 10:27-28

The Word of God teaches the preservation of the saints just as plainly, just as fully, just as forcibly as it teaches the perseverance of the saints. … Perseverance is the believer holding Christ by the hand of faith. Preservation Is Christ holding the believer by the hand of grace.

Jesus is our God and Saviour,
Guide, and Counselor, and Friend:
He will never, never, leave us,
Nor will let us quite leave him.

Don Fortner, “Basic Bible Doctrine”, 427 (adapted)

Marvelous – Infinite Grace | In preaching the gospel we proclaim to guilty souls full pardon by the blood of Christ, perfect justification by the imputation of Christ’s righteousness, complete cleansing from all sin, eternal life in Christ, immutable acceptance in the Beloved, infallible security in his grace, and peace, peace, blessed peace with God!

Whosoever will, let him come! – If any man thirst, let him come! – Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved! – He that believeth on the Son of God hath everlasting life! – Come unto [Jesus], all you that labor and are heavy laden, and [He] will give you rest! | (adapted – Don Fortner, Basic Bible Doc.)
So what hinders you today from receiving God’s Wonderful Grace? Come …
