By acknowledging Jesus as king, and therefore having faith in the savior of the world, followers of Christ are deemed saved and restored to God’s kingdom. When a person is declared saved, this person has the righteousness of Christ imputed into him or her and is deemed justified by God. Therefore, the Gospel is ultimately God’s promise to work through the actions of Christ on the cross and by the influence of the Holy Spirit to make God’s creation
Furthermore, Paul provides even more evidence to the church in Colossae. He indicates that as believers of Jesus Christ, a person must now walk in the ways of newness. A newness contributing much needed righteous fruit, before humanity. The oldness of man is sin, but the newness is the life in Jesus Christ. The Bible records, “If my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land”( 2
Christianity is one of the major religions of this world. Its foundations are centered on the belief that Jesus Christ was sent by God as a Messiah, and that he gave his life for the sins of humans. It is through the belief and acceptance of Jesus Christ that one can obtain salvation and go on to an eternal life. Paul was an apostle who preached the gospel. Through his letter, 1 Corinthians, Paul conveys the essence of Christianity; he emphasizes on important beliefs and Jesus Christ so that people may go on to living an eternal life.
Such experience is a summons to self-searching, to repentance, and to fresh commitment. It is not an occasion for anxiety. God is faith, and he will complete what he has begun.”3 The Gospel in a Pluralist Society, like a good sermon, moves from crisis, to hope and ends with practical application. Christianity today faces a culture that wants to relegate the truth of the Gospel to a pluralism of religious values that contributes to a universal search for salvation. However, there is hope for Christians in the unique story of God 's work for the redemption of the world and the promise of Christ 's return.
And his grace and kindness is given to us in Jesus his divine Son. Jesus is God great gift to humanity (John 3:16), who brings us to God through his death on the cross for us and his resurrection. Our change in status from being God’s bitter enemy to being God’s friend comes simply through believing in Jesus (Romans 3:22-24). Being a Christian means we can rest from striving to win God’s approval because Jesus has done it for us! C. Thirdly, having this new relationship with God, a Christian has a new life.
We are taught that obedience is a law from heaven. Being obedient means that we are willing to be faithful in all the Lord asks of us. This includes doing what He commands without question, doubt, or murmuring. We are willing to be better than we ever have been before! It shows our love for Christ and His sacrifice and our appreciation to our Father in Heaven.
This paper will defend what Christians should mean by 1Timothy 2:3-4, “This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” This scripture has been interpreted many ways by many theologians, but I shall defend the scripture with the knowledge and understanding of what this scripture means. (1) God desires that all men be saved because “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promises as some understand slowness, instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9 NIV). Bear in mind that our Lord patience means salvation. (2) “I have no pleasure in death of him who dies says the Lord God: therefore turn yourselves and live (Ezekiel 18:32 KJV).” (3) “Him who comes to me I will certainly not cast out.” (John 6:37 KJV) Because God loves us, His desire is for us to be saved. Jesus loved us so much that he gave his life so that we might have a right to the tree of life.
Philippians 1:29 says “For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake” NKJV. John 1:12-13 says “But as many received Him, to them He gave the right to become his children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” NKJV. God has given us the choice to believe in him. Some people believe a person can lose your salvation. They can use Biblical references to help them prove the point that they are supporting.
We implore you on behalf of Christ: Be reconciled to God. 21God made Him who knew no sin to be sinb on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 9 Marks has this helpful definition of Evangelism: - Evangelism is teaching (heralding, proclaiming, preaching) the gospel (the message from God that leads us to salvation) with the aim (hope, desire, goal) to persuade (convince, convert) . 1.
