Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/14/14

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

Jesus Christ 4“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                (Romans 10:9)

O how great is God’s love toward us! He sent His son Jesus to sacrifice Himself for us, to become our Lord and our Savior. He came that we might be redeemed and be at peace with God, our Father, that we might know Him. All that is asked is that we believe.

O how great is God’s grace. We cannot work our way to salvation; we cannot be worthy enough; we cannot be good enough to merit His love and mercy. Thank God, there is nothing we can do to earn what He has freely given us. He asks only that we trust and believe Him. Believe that He loves you; believe that Jesus paid the price for your salvation; believe Him.

May you rest in the assurance that God’s grace is sufficient for your salvation.
