If you are searching for a sure way to live and be ready to meet Jesus either at death or when He comes again in the clouds of glory, there is a way and that way is In Christ. Let's study this out to be sure that we are on the right track. We do not want to trust in man as our guide for this very important journey, we must have faith in Christ above anything else. I have learned that In Christ is my only safe path to eternal life, there is no other. Don't let someone tell you there is any other way, there is not.
In Christ we are Complete
Hebrews 13:20,21 "He will make us complete in every good work to do His will, working in you through Jesus."
In Christ we can do it
1 Thessalonians 5:24 "He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it."
In Christ we will be delivered
2 Timothy 4:18 "The Lord will deliver me from every evil work."
In Christ we can be confident
Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Christ."
In Christ you will be safe in your walk
2 Peter1:10 "If you do these things you will never stumble or fall." Read 2 Peter1:1-10 to see what 'these things' are.
In Christ we are perfected
1 John 2:5,6 "Whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him, By this we know we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him, ought himself also to walk just as He walked."
In Christ we are presented faultless to the Father
Jude 24 "Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling an present you faultless before the presence of His glory."
In Christ His Word will save us
James 1:21,22 "Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."
In Christ we are healed
1 Peter 2:2,25 "Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we having died to sins, might live for righteousness - by whose stripes we are healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your soul."
There is so much to this study, I will have to continue it tomorrow, so stand by. I hope this has helped you as it has helped me. In Christ we can do all things, without Him we can do nothing to save ourselves. Theres more, much more. Stay by. Grandma Joan
