    Not By Works

    Obey, works, obey, works. There is not one single person on this awesome thread who has obeyed all the commandments. We are not under the law anymore, praise Jesus Christ the Lord. We are to ask forgiveness if we realize we have sinned or have been disobedient. Yes. But to try to continue...

    Thanks. There was some inclination that I didn't do works by someone but hey, it's all copacetic. As long as my Savior knows my heart, that's all that counts. Bottom line is that what's in our hearts is what counts most.

    Nowhere did I say in my last post that I "do not work" for the Lord. What I said was that I received a blessing when I needed it most without having to "work." Point being, blessings are freely given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as we need them and sometimes when we do not deserve them...

    Feeling a bit down today but just read in my devotion: "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Just what I needed to read. Guess what? I didn't have to do one single "work" either.

    Not By Works

    In reference to my post, we work for God because He is actually doing His work through us. We work for God because we desire to. I'm not against works but works does not save nor do works mean we are "special" and God is happy with us. My point was that whenever we are being tested or going...

    This year has been a challenge for my husband and me. You know what Satan is whispering in my ear? "You are doing this. You aren't doing that. God is mad at you. You aren't doing enough work for Him." Sound familiar? Satan is alive and well in our world today like never before.

    We cannot buy God's blessings, work for His blessings but we can obey Him for His blessings.

    Suicide

    I truly irks me whenever people decide the state of another person's soul. Suicide is not done with a complete mental healthy person. Depression, bipolarism are real mental health issues. Being abused both mentally and physically can lead to mental health issues. While suicide is not the...

    Satan's mantra: Deceive, divide, destroy. The closer we are to the Lord, the harder he works with those 3.

    Over and over in my devotions I read about people trying to do good works enough to wipe out their sins. No way can any of us do enough good works to cleanse ourselves.

    Anyone can "believe" in something. I believe in certain things I see but that doesn't mean I accept them. Of course of one accepts Jesus Christ, they would have to believe He exist. Acceptance is the key word for me in the process of salvation.

    Salvation is free. The work was done by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He offers, we accept. Why do some try and make this into a complicated configuration? Simplicity. Christ did it all. Our only part is to Accept.

    Thank you for giving your story and your testimony. What a challenging life you have had. Yes, once saved is always saved. Our eternal salvation cannot be taken from us. Why? Because that free gift (no strings attached) was supplied by the Blood of Jesus Christ and no one nor anything can...
