Faith

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Romans 5:1-2 KJV
Isn't that great? 

  1. We're justified by faith. Yet not your own but of Christ.
  2. We've access by faith into grace, and faith alone. That's all you ever need, i.e., to operate in grace. We have access to this grace by faith and faith alone. If you believe then you've grace without measure. 


Faith is believing in God that He is. You got to personally believe on him for it to work for you. He acknowledges, reckons all who comes to him believing, that he's and that he is a rewarder.  "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him."  Acts 10:34-35.

He rewarded all who believed with an anointing of right standing in him,  with salvation, and joy in the Holy Ghost. "By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God."

More also, Paul said, 

"And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope..." Romans 5:3-4.

In 1 Corinthians 10:1 he says, "Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea." They all passed through the Red sea meaning in this journey we all have to pass through what Paul described above as tribulations also. Such experiences causes us to hope, and are such as train ourselves patience even with God.

We are humans, and when Jesus came in the flesh he laid us an example. Peter said, 
"For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." 1 Peter 2:21-24 

Faith is a commitment to righteousness, it is saying God is right.

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Receive the Holy Spirit!

In Mark chapter one John the Baptist told his audience that the one who is more powerful is coming, he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.
And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan by John, and as soon as he came up out of the water, John saw the heavens open and the Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove, and immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
Now listen my friend; when you receive the Holy Spirit, immediately your life changes. 
God does not give you of his spirit to only experience a funny feeling; quaking, trembling, or entertaining others like what they do in circus, but he gave us that he should drive us to doing his will. The Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness for "forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him." It was not fun, but serious business, such that later a man with an unclean spirit, "cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, tho…

It is well with my soul

Jesus said, "In your patience possess ye your souls." Luke 21:19.
He says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37.
My message here for you is after you have done all in life, gain your souls, know how you can possess it. When you are self-aware, you consciously know and understand your own character, feelings, motives, desires and what these should serve in life. When we are self-aware, we are able to experience ourselves as separate individuals, with unique personalities natured for the divine, and it is what makes it possible for us to make lasting changes in our lives. 
Self-awareness is empowering, because the more self-aware we are, the more we know who we are, what our strengths are, where we need to make improvements, and  what to do. Know that you have a soul, and that soul needs to grow and it does grow only when you feed it with things divine, no…
