13 For the promise that he should be the heir of the world, was not given to Abraham, or to his seed, through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.
16 Therefore it is by faith, that it might come by grace, and the promise might be sure to all the seed, not to that only which is of the Law: but also to that which is of the faith of Abraham who is the father of us all,
The Epistle to the Romans 4:13, 16 (Geneva Bible Translation Ed. 1599)
Good morning in the mighty name of Jesus Christ
Friends, and brethren, as we have so far learned that our salvation is only from God, through His mercy and grace. It is a fact that we accept through faith. It is faith that gives us the ability to look upon the sacrifice of His Son Jesus, and believe on Him, and what He did for us. It is faith that allows us to say, we are forgiven because He died for us. It is faith that allows us to say, we are redeemed unto the Father, because we now have an advocate to speak on our behalf. It is faith that allows us to say we are saved and will spend our eternity with Him because Christ rose again. And most importantly, it is faith that provides us with the understanding that not only will the above happen, but we will be like our Father in all things.
Friends, if you have not taken that step towards this eternal life, it is with the utmost urgency that you do so. The age we live in is coming to an end. God has been patient, but even so, it will end. He wants all his children to flock to Him, and wishes that none be lost. Pray with me if you will;
Father, I want to be like you, and I accept the sacrifice of your Son Jesus Christ, who went to the punishment of sin, that is death in my stead. I ask for your grace and mercy. Come into my heart and dwell with me. Amen
