“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” – John 3:16
LIGHT FOR NOW: Gods love through Christ is revealed in Salvation.
Salvation is through faith in Christ Jesus. A man can only be saved through faith in Christ Jesus. To understand salvation, you must understand the love of God. To understand salvation, you must know the scriptures because it is only the scriptures that can make one wise into salvation. To know is to perceive; to be acquainted with. It does not in any way mean to quote the scriptures. It is possible to quote what you do not know. To be wise is to be skillful; able to communicate. It is different from being gifted or talented. To be able which is translated from the Greek word, “dunami” is to have ability. It is important to note that all scriptures are profitable for the teaching of the love of God which is salvation. You cannot profit from what you do not know. The subject matter or the message of the scriptures is centered on the person of Jesus. The summary of the scripture is a person (John 5:39). Every doctrine, teaching, explanation or opinion on the subject matter of salvation must have its base from the truth revealed in the scriptures. The scriptures remain the only basis for our faith in Christ. To see the picture of Jesus, you must look at the scriptures. To believe is to have faith in Christ. The message of the prophets made faith available for the Old Testament believer. Their utterances were about the suffering of Christ and the glory that should follow.
It is for the purpose of knowing that God inspired the holy men to write the scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16-17). To be thoroughly furnished unto every good work is to be equipped with the right knowledge. The scriptures equip us unto every good work. You are not effective until you know. You are not perfect until you have an accurate and precise knowledge of Christ. The knowledge you have is the source of your spiritual power. The knowledge of the scripture is very important in your walk of faith. When you understand your authority, you have confidence. Your confidence is in the knowledge that you have. Without an accurate and precise knowledge of the person of Christ, you will not be able to fulfill the will of God for your life. Jesus is the perfect will of God. Until you know Christ, you cannot know the will of God.
INSTRUCTION: Get an accurate knowledge about your salvation.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive revelation knowledge of you, in Jesus Name.
QUOTE: You cannot profit from what you do not know
