The fact that Jesus Christ is alive is basic Gospel. It's the foundation of our faith. But so often we live as if Jesus is still in the grave. We try harder and harder, living as if He was never raised. But He was raised and the power of His resurrection lives in us. We can trust in Jesus who is alive.

We had a wonderful program yesterday as we explained that salvation is more than just forgiveness. It's life. And yesterday Eddie received Christ. If you prayed along with Eddie, we'd like to hear from you. So how do we win this struggle against sin. Romans 7 talks about "doing what I don't want to do". We know the wages of sin is death and through the resurrection of Christ we can experience this new life. We live by faith through Christ.

  • How do we pray continually or with out ceasing as written in 1 Thessalonians 5:17?

We see the ways of the world in Romans 10:3-4 "Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes."

  • Can you lose your salvation?
  • Many times I hear teaching that imply if you commit a particular sin, you will lose your salvation.
  • I struggle everyday with doing right and react with anger. I don't know what to do.
  • Eddie prays to receive Christ. If you prayed along with Eddie, please contact us at bob(at)basicgospel.net

One of the things Jesus told us was that in this world we would have trouble. All too often we believe the opposite. But our hope is in Christ. He overcame the world. In 1 Peter 4:1-3 we read, "Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry."

  • Do we choose Christ or does Christ choose us?
  • How does God know us from before the beginning?

1 Peter had this to say: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade." We have hope in Chris. It's not a dead hope. It's a living hope. Something we can hope in right now. We have an inheritance that can never spoil or fade. In the midst of what's happening today, we find out if we really believe what we say we believe.

Who is the light of the world? What are we to do? Jesus is the only one that meets the needs of the world.

  • James 4: 2-6 God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble? What is the gospel message? The world is against God, it is the spirit of Antichrist.
  • As new covenant believers, is there a day of atonement offering for today? Joel 2. Why should we continue offering sacrifices for sins? Read Hebrew 10.
  • Luke 10:17-20 Even the demons submit to us? Salvation is by grace through faith!

There are a lot of voices out there trying to explain what's going on today. In Hosea 4 the charge was "they didn't have knowledge of God". And we see that today. People reject the knowledge of God. However, when we come into this New Covenant, we are given a knowledge of God and we know God.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the message concerning Christ. Where our lives are centered around Him, everything changes. We are called to lived by faith. When we live by faith, we experience joy motivated by the love of God.

  • As a believer, when I pray, do I only pray to our Father or do I pray to Jesus? Do I pray to the Father, in Jesus' name? Do I pray to the Holy Ghost?
