In God’s Hands

Psalm 31:14-15 Inspiration and Assurance

But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.

It is better to be in God’s hands than out, because God’s hands are totally equipped.

Therefore go!

Matthew 28:18-20

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in haven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 

Always remember;

  1. God called the saved to participate not to spectate or commentate.
  2. Real assignments have no expiration date. You know the immediate direction of the assignment, but not the ultimate direction, outcome or length of the assignment.
  3. God will be with you throughout the mission.

 

Service to God

“This is why God chooses people not merely to salvation but to service. Every saved man or woman or child is intended by God as a messenger and worker to make known God’s grace and power to others” (page 19, Baptist Beliefs)

E. Y. Mullins, Baptist Beliefs, 2009 by Judson Press, Valley Forge PA, 1912 by Baptist World Publishing Company, 1925 Judson Press, Revised 1991.

The Crown of Righteousness

2 Timothy 4:1-8

Verse 8 – Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day –  and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. 

Death does not devour Believers. It is the passage to good hope! Death is the last struggle of life, but it is also the passage to victory through Christ, Jesus. It is the passage to the Crown of Righteousness.

“Saving Faith”

E Y Mullins in Baptist Beliefs (1912) says “Saving faith includes belief and trust: belief of the facts and truths of the gospel and trust in Jesus Christ for Salvation.”

Jesus, healed ten of Leprosy (Luke 17:11-19), but only the Samaritan came back to thank him. “He (Jesus) said to him (the Samaritan), “Rise and go: your faith has made you well.” (Luke  17:19)

As the Samaritan’s faith in Jesus saved him from the leprosy, only our faith in Jesus Christ provides us eternal Salvation.
