In Christ Jesus, We Have Eternal Life
Eternal life begins the very moment a person places faith in Jesus, and He sends His Spirit to come live in them forever. Now we do have this body of flesh that we are temporarily housed in, but some day we will be absent from this body of flesh we live in and be present with the Lord Jesus Christ with a brand new body. Bob explains this and other things in greater detail. Understanding our justification in Him is so important today, because without having a proper perspective on Life, we will continue to try and do what Christ Jesus has already done. Let us go on to maturity and learn what it means to live by faith moment by moment in our lives today.

We Are Justified by Faith in Jesus, Not By The Works of The Law
Place faith in Jesus, not your ability to keep the law. For no one can keep the law. Yet we see that man wants to continue in the work of religion. The evil works of religion is all around us. Religion sows to the flesh. It makes you think you are doing something to earn your way to heaven. But there is only one way, and that is through faith in Jesus. Jesus did it all.
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to base their beliefs and build their lives. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

It is God Who Justifies the Wicked, Not the Righteous
There is something in the human nature, our flesh, our pride in self that wants to believe that God justifies those that are righteous. We think, we are not as bad as someone else. Yet we are told in the Scriptures that God justifies the wicked, not the righteous. Why is that? Because there isn’t any one righteous in and of themselves. No one is good, no not one. No one is righteous, no not one (Romans 3:10). Only by a person’s faith in Jesus, the Only Righteous One, is a person declared righteous in God’s sight. And it is because of Jesus, and His righteousness (not our own) that we can be declared righteous in His sight forever.
Romans 4:5 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly (the wicked), his faith is counted for righteousness.
Romans 3:26 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Jesus is Our Everything to All in Those in Christ Jesus
When a person is in Christ Jesus, Jesus is our everything. He is our Righteousness. He is our Holiness. He is our Sanctification. He is our Forgiveness. He is our Reconciliation. He is our Redeemer. He is our Life Giver. He is our Justifier. He is our everything, for we cannot do anything apart from Him. For He lives in us and directs us and instructs us in the world today.
Yet we see so many “churches” are out there being busy and barren all caught up in religion. They fail to realize that the church is the body of believers and have been instructed to go out into the world and share Jesus with the world, for we are Christ’s ambassadors.

Jesus Did Not Atone For Sin ~ He Took Away Sin
The majority of pastors and teachers are teaching that Jesus atoned for the sins of the whole world. That is a lie. Jesus did not atone for sin. He did not cover sins like the blood of bulls and goats. Jesus took away the sins of the whole world and took them away from the eyes of God to never see them again. So you say, well then, does that mean everyone is saved? No. Salvation is not getting your sins forgiven. Salvation is LIFE. His Life coming into the believer when a person places faith in Jesus, God in the flesh, who took away their sins on the cross. Believe it. Place faith in Him. Stop placing faith in your asking for ongoing forgiveness.
