Are You Still Searching Today?
Some are still searching, looking for that which they may do to seal their journey to Heaven. Jesus Christ has already done it all. There is nothing you or I can do that will secure our salvation but trusting in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. There is but one way to God and that is Jesus Christ. By His grace only can we be saved. He has paid our debt in full. It is a done deal. But there are still those who feel a responsibility to try and do more of other things along with trusting in Jesus. Be worried of nothing. This does not mean to live a life of sin after you have given your life to Jesus Christ, Heaven forbid. Maintain a life of good works and it will be good for you. Live our lives as a light for others to see the love of God showing through us. Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and striving about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. Go out as fishers of men catching all we can for the glory of God and for no other reason. It is our responsibility to bring others to Christ with love. God is love and all abounds through that. Stay away from vain and unprofitable actions. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but through Him.
1: Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
2: To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
3: For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
4: But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6: Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7: That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
8: This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
9: But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
10: A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
11: Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
