"For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end" 2 Corinthians 1:13.
What is it that you read about and acknowledge?
When you read your Bible, all you see is grace of God, you see his promises too.
Two promises stand out; that of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
- Jesus Christ is for us the grace of God and, ”all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" 2 Corinthians 1:20.
- The Holy Ghost. Paul says, He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; "Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts" 2 Corinthians 1:21-22.
When you read your Bible, don’t be distracted from seeing both these two promises, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. I trust ye shall be able to acknowledge their presence in your life and significance even to the end of your journey here on Earth.
"For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ"
2 Peter 1:8.
When we say he has anointed us, it means he concentrated us, sanctified us, ordained us, and set us apart as vessels worthy for the master’s use.
Paul says, "....let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity....If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work" 2 Timothy 2:19,21.
He says "Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus" meaning there could be some other form of grace too, that is manmade.
