Christ is never unwilling to give to those who abide in Him. One of God’s greatest truth is knowing Jesus as His Son and taking action on Christ’s commandments. In fact, nothing pleases God more than living for Christ’s purpose. And the rewards from the Lord by following the Messiah are an endless delivery of divine grace, mercy, and love.
Salvation isn’t a theory. Ask someone who God saved and you’ll discover a powerful conviction to His truths. The saved person tells you nothing matches living in Christ. It’s the most profound experience anyone can have with God!
The Lord made a person’s life spiritually whole full of purpose and filled with meaning. To get this precious gift then faith in Christ is God’s preference. Without abiding in Jesus the strength of God stays elusive. But when you concede in Christ, the courage to live holy overtakes the lusts of the flesh.
The first thing to remember is God’s salvation plan starts with His grace through faith in Christ. Make no mistake, my friend, without Jesus eternal life with God stays at bay.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
I remember my life before God introduced me to Christ. Prideful ambitions coupled with the chains of sin caused me tremendous suffering. My self-searching motives engulfed me in selfish behavior leading me to an isolated and lonely existence. Everything evolved around me leaving no room for selflessness.
This lifestyle bonded me to a life anchored in self-reliance and the inability to resolve problems reserved for Christ. My self-will run wild led me to a life full of turmoil and filled with relentless troubles.
It brings me great joy the transformation Christ instilled in me changed everything. I no longer rely on myself and as the result of abiding in Christ the freedom from sin is noticeable.
The Spirit of God entered my heart and the wisdom to understand His will is visible. This improved outlook upon my existence revolutionized my knowledge of Christ. For example, I discovered a love unlike any I’ve known. Likewise, a compassion for others emerged and spirit connects with the tribulations experienced by people.
Abide in Christ connects us to God. And a conscious contact with the Father leads to eternal life. The Lord’s grace is the reason we live in Christ.
