While it is certainly true that Christ Himself must be the object of our faith (Acts 16:31 ), Paul makes it abundantly clear that we must believe something about Christ in order to be saved. That is, faith in Christ includes believing correctly about His person and His work. And to believe means: that upon which a man or woman is prepared to act. Or to put it more simply: believe is to accept as true, to accept as real!
If we are going to base our knowledge of God’s salvation upon God’s Book, the Bible, if we are going to act for time and eternity in this most important of all transactions and receive from God His salvation, then let us believe the fact…that is, “that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 . Therefore, the redemptive work of Christ is a finished work so far as the salvation of man’s soul is concerned; and we must know that He will return for the redemption of the body; to save man, soul and spirit. Now by believing, we are going to receive this last statement and this next statement at full face value, without discount, without even the shadow of a doubt, without question or criticism…“By His own blood He entered in ONCE into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”
The fact is, that by the work of God, (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), there has been accomplished and there is available: for any and every sinner who believes the record that God gave of His Son, an accomplished redemption, a perfect salvation. And we shall see by the same Divine authority the further fact that this perfect salvation can be had by the believing sinner without any additional work, religious endeavor or church ceremony.
For any and every sinner who believes the record that God gave of His Son, there is an accomplished redemption, a perfect salvation, available
The redemptive work of Christ is a finished work so far as the salvation of man’s soul is concerned.
To the dear lost soul who may have come across this page, I beg you, in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
Believe the message “that Christ died for your sins according to the scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Cor. 15:3-4).
This is the gospel!
