Content Sample

When we cannot find joy in anything else, we find it in what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross. We cling to our redemption in Christ because the difficulties of this life can bring us to despair. We also cling to our redemption in Christ to prove to the enemies of Christ that we are His. When we endure the difficulties of this life obediently, Jesus is praised, He is glorified, and His name is lifted up.

The outward manifestation of our obedience to Christ is evidence of our inner faith. As believers, we are surrendered to the desire of One we have not seen. We look forward to the return of Christ confidently because of His promise to return. Even when the physical body cannot respond because of injury or disease, we rejoice in our hearts. Our security lies in the promise of a faithful God who has never failed to fulfill His Word.

Believers are secure in the salvation offered to everyone and anyone who will believe on their need for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus left heaven and lived a sinless life. His surrender on the cross was to take the weight of God's wrath toward sinners upon Himself. He rose again to demonstrate His power over death and empower believers to grow in Him through the Holy Spirit. Believers have His righteousness that was established by the shedding of His blood, and allows us to live securely in His promises.
