Complete in Christ

Counted as Righteousness

Romans 4:1-5 says “What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness”. The law shows us that we are not measuring up, and that’s all. The law cannot save you. If you are trying to work your way into righteousness, you will never achieve it. Instead, trust that God can justify you, give you hope, and make you righteous. * $90,000 matching grant.

The Most Relevant Thing

Your life intersects with the life of Jesus Christ. The event that took place 2000 years ago is actually the most relevant event in your life today. Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories (1 Peter 1:10-11). This grace of God was prophesied by the prophets of old for you. We experience the same glories by grace through faith in Christ. * A YouTube viewer asks about predestination.

Life in His Name

When you look at the Christian life you can see it’s a life of thankfulness. A life of saying “thank you” for all God has given us in Jesus Christ. He is our constant. Nothing can separate us from Him. We have crossed over from death to life. He has made us alive. By living out this thankfulness, we can have a grace effect upon those we meet. “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:30-31 * Where in Genesis does it state that Adam and Eve are the parents of humanity?
