THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
One cannot climb the mountain without beginning at the base.
At the beginning of the mountain of faith is surrender to the base
-- Christ the Lord!
2 Cor 1:9-10
9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we
should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver:
in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;
Light from the Word.
We ALL have "the sentence of death in ourselves!"
It is WRITTEN, "For ALL have sinned...." (Rom. 3:23)
And, "..the WAGES of sin is DEATH..." (Rom. 6:23)
I LOVE that word in God's WORD!
"BUT...the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ
our Lord!" (Rom. 6:23)
He HAS delivered, DOES deliver and WILL deliver!
Jesus HAS "DELIVERED us from so great a death"!!
He came to pay OUR sentence for sin with HIS body!
He came to TURN AWAY the wrath of God for us, and
OFFER us God's mercy and grace!
Jesus "DOTH deliver!"
He is even NOW working in each Christian's life to
help them "work out your own salvation with fear and
trembling." (Philippians 2:12)
Jesus "WILL YET deliver us!"
One day our gracious Lord Jesus WILL YET deliver us into that
perfect heaven, where there will be no sickness, sorrow, crying
or dying – BECAUSE there will be no sin!!
Get in your CLIMBING MODE!
START with the BASE -- surrender to Jesus as Lord!
