This morning’s message was based on a reading from 2nd Peter, chapter 1
Religions in general try to reach up to God to earn a right standing with Him. Christianity is where God reached down to us. Faith in Jesus imparts a right standing we could never attain by ourselves. The foundation is a righteousness from God through Christ Jesus’s sacrifice for us. As we begin our relationship with God we need to be growing in Him. Warren Wiersbe said it is not just our profession of faith that assures us of our salvation but the PROGRESSION that is evident as we grow to be more like Christ in every area of our lives because His Spirit in enthroned in our hearts.
