SO WE MIGHT BELIEVE

by Charles Robey
(Trussville AL)

I just can't imagine my Heavenly Savior leaving the "Splendors of Glory", to live among the common mortal men, fisherman, tax collectors, the poor and the like. However, according to the Holy Scripture, this was determined before the foundation of the earth.


"But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law". (Galatians 4:4)

For you see, mankind was destine to fall into sin. Thus mankind needed a Savior.

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".(Romans 3:23)

And now, we have no excuse, not following God's "Plan of Redemption" for all mankind. Because our Savior, Christ Jesus, lived among us and experienced all of life's problems, just as we do day-by-day, yet without sin, of course.

"For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted". (Hebrews 2:18).

So, what about you? Are you waiting until you have done enough good deeds, or have given enough money to the church, or until your parents says it's time to be good?

Well beloved, based solely on that criteria alone, that will never happen. Because we can never be good enough on our own merits, aside from God's grace, to be redeemed of our sin.

God, is an all seeing, all knowing God. And when mankind fell into sin in the garden of Eden, God gave mankind a just but lasting plan, based on His love and not what we did on our own, to bring mankind back into fellowship with Him. His plan was simply allowing mankind, to gain fellowship with Him, by faith alone, and excepting His free plan, based solely on His good Grace.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:8-9).

I realize from a human standpoint, this plan doesn't seem real. but it's all based on our faithful obedience to God and excepting what His Son, Jesus Christ, did for us on the cross. This move sealed God's plan of redeeming mankind forever.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

Will you take God at His word, by your faith in Him, and simply ask Him to forgive your sins, in the name of His Son Jesus. If you meant this, you were saved by Gods free Grace. Next, get a Bible and start reading in the book of John. And, also find and attend a good Bible beliving and teaching church.

It was the first miracle of its time, by turning the water into wine.
That we might believe
When His healings had begun, Many were healed by the Son
That we might believe
At the meeting by the sea, A small lad's dinner served those that be
That we might believe
When traveling through the land, Many demons left by command
That we might believe
Many times He calmed the seas, And walked waves as He pleased
That we might believe
By a simple speech command, death became life throughout the land
That we might believe.
The fishes coin He did confound, When the tribute money was found.
That we might believe
When betrayed in the garden field, the soldiers ear was divinely healed
That we might believe
Many miracles to the world seemed dross, Above all was the work of the cross
That we might believe
For this greatest miracle of divine grace, happened as Christ took our place
That we might believe
Now that salvations plan is freely set, Failure to accept would be a regret.
That we might believe
