Scripture Reading: Philippians 1: 29

As we consider our position and standing in Christ (as  members of the Church which is His Body), we cannot but  rejoice and be thankful; but we must not become smug and  self-righteous in the knowledge of our eternal security. Along  with the free gift of our redemption by His shed blood, for  which no price is exacted of us, we have received a holy charge  of responsibility: "If [since] ye then be risen with Christ, seek  those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right  hand of God. SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE,  NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH" (Colossians 3:1, 2).

"Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,  with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering,  forbearing one another in love; endeavouring to keep the unity  of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (Ephesians 4:1-3). "Walk in  wisdom toward them that are without [non-believers],  redeeming the time. LET YOUR SPEECH BE ALWAY WITH  GRACE" (Colossians 4:5, 6).

Not all will be sugar and spice! "For we wrestle not  against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against  powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, m against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6: 12).  "For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to  believe on Him, but also TO SUFFER FOR HIS SAKE." "Yea,  and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus SHALL SUFFER  PERSECUTION" (Philippians 1:29, II Timothy 3:12).

Thus the apostle's admonition of total commitment:  "WHATSOEVER YE DO in word or deed, DO ALL IN THE  NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, giving thanks ... " (Colossians  3:17).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
