Christ in You. The Hope of Glory

Christ in You. The Hope of Glory..png

Jesus Christ lives in all of us who have repented of our sins and believed His Gospel: His death for our sins, His burial, and His resurrection.

Once Christ lives in you, you have the power of Christ to live for Christ and to become more and more like Him – this is the great goal of our sanctification – Philippians 2:12.

Because Christ lives in us, He is our hope of glory – that one day we will be with Him in heaven. Christ is our hope of glory; we have no hope outside of Christ living in us.

If Christ is not in you, you have no hope of glory or of going to heaven.

Christ in you means that He lives in you. When Christ lives in you, He takes charge over your heart, your emotions, your attitudes, your thoughts, your speech, and your behavior.

You cannot remain the same when Jesus lives inside of you. Those who never change do not have Christ living inside of them. Christ is both the Initiator of change and the Transformer of our transformation. All this is made possible by His grace.

Is Christ Jesus, the Hope of Glory, living inside you by faith in His Gospel?

Have you changed?

World Idolatry, And The One True God

“And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.” – Jeremiah 1:16

 

Jeremiah was a priest, but the LORD God, Jesus Christ, called him to be a prophet “over nations and over kingdoms” – Jeremiah 1:10.

There were three reasons why God through Jeremiah would judge the nation of Israel in the 7th century B.C.:

  1. They had forsaken the LORD. “If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good” – Joshua 24:20.
  2. They burned incense to other gods. Ignoring the clear teaching of the written Word of God, they chose to be politically correct. They were swayed to believe that all religions seek God in their own way and by a different name, yet God had already told them this was not true:

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:3-6

3. They worshipped the works of their own hands. Man’s wisdom, education, and philosophies became the criteria for worship not the written revelation of God’s Word: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ”Colossians 2:8.

My deep concern is for you, dear reader; are you doing the same thing the children of Israel did in the ancient days? Are you forsaking Jesus Christ who, Himself, declared, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the father but by Me” – John 14:6.

Please listen to God’s Word. There is no hope of salvation outside of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. You must remain faithful to Christ alone no matter what the cost. If you know Him, He has promised to be faithful to you: “He is faithful that promised” – Hebrews 10:23.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead the third day according to the Scriptures – 1 Corinthians 15. He ascended into heaven and sat at the right hand of the Father where He PRESENTLY sustains the universe – including His followers on this earth. He will return to this earth and establish His kingdom on this earth – He will rule over all – Isaiah 9:6-7.

You need Jesus Christ. You don’t need anyone or anything else. All you need is Jesus for He is our “wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption” – 1 Corinthians 1:30.

Jesus Christ is the only hope for you in this entire universe – follow Him.

Turn from you sins – repent – and follow the risen Christ!

Love – Ryan

Jesus Is Not the Slave of Allah and Mohammad

In the following video clip below, a young man is commanded to remove his cross and recite the Shahadah, children are taught to serve the false god Allah, and an Islamic evangelist weeps for a lie. I wish I could share the Gospel with that evangelist and all the men, women, and children in this video; I wish I could show them all the truth, love, and grace of Christ.

Here is the clip:

Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for My sake the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged if he gain the whole world and lose himself or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed when He shall come in His own glory, and in the Father’s, and of the Holy Angels” – Luke 9:23-26.

Lord Jesus, we pray that we will never be ashamed of You. Help us to be bold in the face of the persecution that comes from seeking You alone. Help us to never seek to save our lives but to lose our lives for your sake. We humble ask You to be the Lord of our lives. Amen.
