But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

Believers are the dam in the river of iniquity

 

II Corinthians 5:20,21

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

First and foremost we are Christ’s ambassadors; we are the extension of Heaven here on earth. To do what? God leaves us here to share the good news with the lost world around us. If Christians don’t do it, who will?

Secondarily but just as important is that each of us as individuals and as members of the body of Christ, being indwelt with the Holy Spirit are the only restraining force holding back the flood gates of evil. As Paul makes so clear in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 that the Church is a dam in the world’s river of iniquity.

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He (the body of Christ) who now restrains will do so until He (the body of Christ) is taken out of the way.

II Thessalonians 2:7

One day He is going to call us out (1 Corinthians 15:51,52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18), and that river of wickedness will flow over this planet like it never has before. But until that happens, we are to share the gospel and be that dam in the river of evil.

 

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.

Ephesians 5:11-13

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '

Romans 10:9
