Christ’s Righteousness outworking in us by Faith

“If we will eat the flesh of Christ, and drink His blood, we will have the life of Christ. If we have His life, we have a righteous life; His obedience works in us, and that makes us righteous. This does not leave any room for the statement that Christ obeys for us, and that therefore we can do as we please, and his righteousness will be accounted unto us just the same. His obedience must be manifested in us day by day. It is not our obedience, but the obedience of Christ working in us. By those “exceeding great and precious promises”, we take the divine life into us. The life we live is the life of the Son of God. He died for us, and loved us with a love that we cannot fathom. The righteousness that we have is His. Thanks be to God for the unspeakable gift! He lets us get all the benefit of that obedience, because we have shown our intense desire for obedience. (Examine yourself on this point, dear reader, our intense desire for obedience is crucial.)

That is why He gives it to us.

When you go to God, take these Scriptures on your lips: “We shall be saved by His life.” “By the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Take them to God in prayer. They are true, for the Lord Himself has said so. How can these blessings be obtained? By faith! Take it by faith, and it is yours, and no one can take it from you. Then you will have it, although you do not understand how it can be done. When you have it, you have life. What life? The divine life. Then when you come up to the time of temptation, the time when you have usually fallen, you can tell Satan that he has no power to make you fall beneath that temptation, for it is not you, but Christ that dwelleth in you.

There never was a time in the life of any man when of himself he had power to resist temptation. We cannot do it. That proves that we must have a life different from our natural life in order to resist sin at all. That must be a life that sin has never touched and can never touch (Jesus’ life). Repeat the glorious words over and over again, “His life is mine, I cannot be touched by sin. His strength is my strength; His obedience is my obedience, and His life is my life. That was a sinless life, and by faith I have it. I hold to it because it is mine, and sin cannot touch it.” that is the only way to resist them, and that will be successful every time.

Once saved, always saved, is it true?

Today a very popular doctrine being preached is calledthe “Once saved, always saved” doctrine. As with ALL importantbible truths we must look to the scriptures for the real answers. I can tell you there is so much bible evidence against this , it would take up too much here to allow. So I will condense it.

The basic belief is that once a person “accepts” Jesus as their Lord and savior, that settles the issue once and for all. They are saved no matter what they do after this. On the face of this it seems perposterous, but MANY believe this. There are so many flaws to this I will post a few of the obvious ones.

Jesus died for us because we were hopeless “sinners”. His death paid our deserving death and punishment. It is because of this that our slate has been wiped clean. Would it then make sense to assume we can go ahead and filthy our lives with continual sinning and expect our Lord’s sacrafice to be therefore ofno significant importance? What was His sacrafice for? If we can continue to sin and simply “say” I accept Jesus as my savior, it makes a mockery of Jesus suffering death!

(Romans 6:1-4) says “… are we to CONTINUE in sin, so that grace abounds? God forbid!How shall we who died in sin, still LIVE IN IT?”Here it is bascially saying that once we are saved, do we continue to willfully sin, relying on His ever expanding grace to cover us? God forbid!Meaning –Don’t doit. Stop your sinning and appreciate His suffering sacrafice for you.

Then we have the powerful (Hebrews 10:26) ” If we sin willfully AFTER receiving the knowledge of the truth, there remains NO MORE SACRAFICE FOR OUR SINS”. Now this one is about as straight forward as you can get. It means that once we acknowledge that our Lord paid the sacrifice for our sins, we CAN’T continue to willfully sin or else we can’t rely on the Lord’s sacrafice to save us.

(Eze 33:11) says ” Say unto them, as sure as I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but want that the wicked turn from his way and live, turn ye, turn yefrom your evil ways, for why will you die, oh house ofIsreal?”Here is says if we continue to live wicked lives (continual sinning) we shall die, but why do it when we can live righteously in Christ? The Holy Spirit will help us to keep from this continual sinning, IF WE SUBMIT!

All this really shouldn’t be aconcernfor the true believer. Because the Holy Spirit should have taken up within us to help us overcome this repetitive sinning. Sanctification takes place and our life is changed.

In summary, let us never think we can carelessly continue to sin, relying on the false belief that we are saved no matter what. The Lord’s sacrafice was an awesome thing for us and we can never hold it in contempt.
