"Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

Hi, Friend,
It's a Package Deal!

by Peter Wade
What does the believer receive spiritually when he is born again? What is included in the gift of God’s grace, which is Christ in you, the expectation of glory? 

The book of Romans is loaded with tremendous statements as to what was God’s great gift to the Church on the Day of Pentecost. This gift has been received by every person who has believed in his heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessed with his mouth Jesus as Lord (Romans 10:9).

The gift of righteousness
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets: Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God: Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:21-24).

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption [sonship], whereby we cry, Abba, Father” (Romans 8:15). The Word says we have received the spirit of sonship — not adoption (which is for Israel). We were born into the family, we became sons, we have received the spirit of sonship.

Peace towards God
In chapter 5 of Romans there are two or three tremendous statements we must look at. “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with [towards] God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). What happened to give us that peace towards God? We were justified by faith. Our peace towards God is through the work of Jesus Christ. God was not fighting us, but we had no method of communication, no area of fellowship. We were aliens, we were strangers, we were just so out of touch that there seemed to be no hope between us and God. But now being justified by faith we have peace towards God.

Peter Wade gives an artful and meaningful explanation of what we received at salvation. Righteousness, peace toward God, sonship, freedom from condemnation, eternal life, an abundance of grace, reconciliation and the love of God.

Three Salvation Blogs 

The Finished Work of Christ
by William Durham
One thing is sure, and all would do well to recognize it. Time can never change nor interfere with the plan of God. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is exactly the same today that it was in the beginning. A man is saved today on exactly the same terms he was in the days of the Apostles.

The Preaching of the Cross
by DeVern Fromke

Among others, there is at least one verse (I Cor. 1:18) in which Paul explains how the Cross had become a regulating force in his life and ministry. But we shall miss the full meaning of this verse unless we discover the meaning of one word — a word which becomes a key to open the meaning which has too long been hidden.

Two Prepositions
J. Sidlow Baxter
“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3). In this Colossian epistle, we may well linger over the two little prepositions, “with” and “in”, as they express our union with Christ. 

At the end of each blog there is a special place for you to leave a comment. We love hearing from you.
