"I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death." (Revelation 1:18)
In the book of First John, you will discover what it means to be saved. The person who is saved will be encouraged and strengthened. The person who is deceived and lost will be confronted and convicted with the truths of Scripture.
Thank God for GraceGrace is amazing. The Bible teaches that God’s gift of salvation is given to us by grace. Man’s feeble attempts to try please God by his works have always fallen short. We are not able to please God because of the weakness of our flesh. We are sinners by nature because we all have the nature of Adam. We find ourselves thinking like Paul: “For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.” Romans 7:19 We cry out like Paul: “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” Romans 7:24 God has revealed the “Who” that can deliver us from sin and death. It is His Son, Jesus Christ. God’s grace provided our Deliverer. God has “delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son.” Colossians 1:13 We now can say with Paul. “I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord.” Romans 7:25 “For by grace are ye 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 Give the Lord thanks for His amazing Grace!
The day Jesus died darkness covered Calvary's hill. It seemed that all hope was gone. His followers were in tears and despair. They had believed He was indeed the promised Messiah. They were soon to discover the "Dawn of Eternal Hope."
