Responding…

Posted on Posted in Faith, Love, Trust

                                                       … in faith to …

How do we, or how should we respond to grace,
… and to what Jesus has already done?
Quite simply, by faith, for …

      Now faith is the substance of things hoped for…
      Heb 11 1

And furthermore the Bible also tells us …
      Now the just shall live by faith
      Heb 10 38 (Rom 1 17 – Gal 3 11)

So how does this faith work for me?
By responding to what Jesus Himself said He came to do…

      I have come that you may have life,
      and that you may have it more abundantly.
      John 10 10

This really means that my part is to not only receive life,
but to practically LIVE that abundant life Jesus prepared for me,
to live what He has already made available!
In other words, living the benefits of His sacrifice on my behalf!
Are you redeemed? – Yes! –
… then live that life free of condemnation and fear
… that He shed His blood for!
Are you healed? – Yes! –
… then live that healing that He sacrificed His body for!

That is what the apostle Paul told the Philippians, saying

      work out your own salvation
      Phil 2 12

By taking hold of the fullness of life,
… and LIVE in all that Jesus has already done for you,
by receiving the fullness of salvation in Christ Jesus
and living a victorious, full and abundant life.
