Living With The Eternal Grace of God

The Christians way of life flows out of God's grace upon us.  Christians do not have to practice rituals in an effort to get right with God.  Christians are made righteous before God by the personal sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.  Jesus suffered enormous pain and shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sins.  The work of Jesus is a completed action that needs no human addition (Heb. 10:1-4).

God's work inside of the Christian is what naturally causes us to do good works, and is what move us to stimulate others to do good works, and want to be around each other (Heb. 10:19-25).

Christians, God's work of grace inside of us provides us eternal intimacy in God's holy presence, and drives us into a lifetime of faithful service to Him with unwavering hope (Heb. 10:19-23).

We live with a no turning back to our old life of leaving God out and doing our own thing. "But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul" (Hebrews 10:39).

Christian's live with total confidence in the eternal work that God has done inside of us, and with what He is doing, and what He is going to do (this is our ongoing and fulfilling worship of God).

God Bless,

Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
