Salvation Is An Act of God

Salvation is an act of God. It is initiated by God, wrought by God, and sustained by God. The faith that saves the soul is described as faith in Christ as the Son of God-not as a good man or a great man, but as the uniquely begotten Son of the living God!

This is consistent with the witness of the entire New Testament and with the proclamations of the first preachers of the Gospel. All proclaim the necessity of faith in Jesus Christ as deity.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, Son of God, I worship You unreservedly and praise Your holy name.

    One of the biggest frustrations for believers is to watch someone they truly care for, wallow around anguishing in deep despair. The believer already has the answer, his name is Jesus Christ The Holy Son of God, Saviour of all mankind , that are willing to accept that great truth . Sadly , peace and joy are at the fingertips of the unbeliever , yet many choose not to accept Christ’s invitation. The good news is, where there is life there is hope.

    David Jeremiah wrote in today’s Bible lesson: Two of the wisest, godliest men in the Bible used self-talk and plain language when describing their despondency. David spoke to his own soul, asking, “Why are you cast down . . . and why are you disquieted?” And Jesus, on the night of His betrayal and arrest, readily admitted to His disciples that His “soul [was] exceedingly sorrowful, even to death” at the prospect of what lay ahead of Him (Matthew 26:38). Yet along with their honest confessions of pain they voiced their trust in God—David in the same breath as his confession and Jesus moments later when He put His faith in God’s will rather than His own (Luke 22:42).
