THE THREE IMPORTANT STEPS IN CHRISTIANITY.

HOLY AND BELOVED:
BEING CONVERTED FROM WHAT WE USE TO BE BEFORE ACCEPTING CHRIST AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. (WITHOUT CHRIST, BEING ALIENS FROM THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL. EPHESIANS 2:-12)
NOW TO CHILDREN OF LIGHT, HEIRS OF THE FATHER, AND JOINT-HEIRS WITH THE SON.
BEING AT THIS POINT, IS NOT AN AUTOMATIC TICKET TO SALVATION, WE ARE JUST AT THE BEGINNING, WHICH HAPPENS TO BE THE FIRST STEP OF THE RACE TO ETERNAL LIFE WITH THE LORD JESUS. (JAMES 1:-12)
TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AFTER BEING BAPTIZED IS THE SECOND STEP. ONE MAY NOT IMMEDIATELY RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AFTER BEING BAPTIZED. (ACTS. 8:-14-17)
THE THIRD AND FINAL STEP IS ENDURANCE.
PHILIPPIANS 3:-12 “NOT AS THOUGH I HAD ALREADY ATTAINED, EITHER WERE ALREADY PERFECT; BUT I FOLLOW AFTER IF INDEED I MAY APPREHEND THAT FOR WHICH ALSO I AM APPREHENDED OF CHRIST JESUS.”
CHRISTIANITY IS A DAILY CHALLENGE. AND WE MUST ENDURE TO THE END.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:-5 “FOR JUST AS WE SHARE ABUNDANTLY IN THE SUFFERING OF CHRIST, SO ALSO OUR COMFORT ABOUNDS THROUGH CHRIST.”
CHRIST BELOVEDS, ANYTIME THAT WE FIND OURSELVES IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION, WE OFTEN ASKED OURSELVES, “WHY ME”
JOHN 15:-20 “REMEMBER THE WORD THAT I SAID UNTO YOU, THE SERVANT IS NOT GREATER THAN HIS LORD. IF THEY PERSECUTE ME, THEY WILL ALSO PERSECUTE YOU. IF THEY HAVE KEPT MY SAYING, THEY WILL ALSO KEEP YOURS.”
IN CONCLUSION: MAY THE LORD COMFORT OUR SOULS IN AFFLICTION, THAT WE MAY RUN OUR RACE EXCELLENTLY.
IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME WE PRAY. AMEN.
