THE ASSURANCE OF OUR FAITH
Today I want to bring you to another level to your life giving with our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is what I have termed as THE ASSURANCE OF OUR FAITH.
Our mark as Christians is the faith we have that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah) Isaiah 53:4-5 and our believe is to know why God sent him. There are many God’s but Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only one who died and resurrected. All is because of you and me. Our infirmities and sorrows were cast upon Him, that we may gain our Godly privileges again.
God sent him to reconcile our spiritual life through Love. That is by showing our faith in Him through loving one another. Love which is a fruit of the spirit, as we show it to one another develops our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who chose to love us by coming to die on the cross for us. 2 Peter 1:5-7 Assurance of faith is a development of godliness through perseverance and self control. Such qualities in an increasing measure, keeps us from being ineffective and unproductive in the eyes of God. Our victory therefore is our faith in Him which has overcome the world (the kingdom of darkness) 1 John 5:13 to give us eternal life. This brings the Lord’s blessings upon believers. For it gives them assurance and help them to keep on believing 2 Timothy 1:12 We then never become ashamed of the state at which we are for we know that He is able to guard all that we have entrusted in Him. This is a prove of Paul’s statement that the assurance of a believer’s eternal life in God, gives him the assurance of other benefits in his relationship with God. Therefore be rest assured that He will not desert you.
Our justification by God through Jesus brings love, joy and peace within our Spirit. Romans 5:1 and helps us to pray unto Him. For it is through the assurance of our faith that helps us pray always. 1 John 5:14-15, As we hold the assurance of faith we receive joyful, confidence and freedom to express ourselves boldly in prayer. So God always grant us our request. On this note I want to express the three dimensional “IF OF FAITH” to the assurance we have in our Lord Jesus Christ.
- IF we can become obedient to God’s word, and our hearts condemn us not 1 John 3:21-22 we have the assurance that we have submitted our lives to the will of God.
- IF we submit to His will. He hears us and we are without any compliance to God’s will by having confidence in the ways of God.
- IF we know that He hear us, then our desires shall be met through Him.
In short the IF OF FAITH is the confidence we have in Him, the assurance we have in Him that He shall never forsake us.
Just have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ that the job He did on the cross stand for everything you need in life.
God Bless you
