Are You a Living In Grace?

Ephesian 2:8

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God

If you are a fellow believer then you too are Living In Grace that is built upon the firm foundation of Christ our Savior. I pray that what is written here will glorify Christ and edify His body, the Church.

8 In Christ Alone

The Exclusivity of Christ

I am the Way, and The Truth, and The Life; no one come to
the Father but through ME.
John 14:6

The choices are not limited.  There simply is no other choice. There is no way to the Father but through Jesus.  PERIOD!! 
  • HE has taken our debt and nailed it to the cross- Colossians 2:4
  • While enemies, through Christ's death alone, and not others, we who believe were reconciled- Romans 5:10
  • Christ alone offered Himself without blemish to God to cleanse your conscience- Hebrews 9:14
He alone, through His death, paid the debt we could not pay.

His Voice is known by those who are His

  • No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him- John 6:44
  • The sheep hear His voice; and He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out, and the sheep follow Him for they know His voice- John 10:3
  • I am the door of the sheep.....I am the door; if anyone enters by Me he will be saved- John 10:7a-9
  • But you do not believe because you are not of my sheep as I said to you.  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.- John 10:26-27
That still small voice that speaks quietly to us is the same voice that said, " It is finished, " from the Cross. The same Person who spoke the worlds into existence  with a clarion call and the authority to do so is the Same One who calls your name personally.  He is the Same.  Christ Alone.

There is no other name, not Mohammad or Buddha, not Joseph Smith or the Dalai Lama,  not Ellen G. White or The Watchtower that can save.  They are powerless and futile in their efforts.  Their words are of no effect on the spiritually dead sinner, But God, who is the giver of Life, and through Christ Alone the dead come alive.  The blind will see and the lame will walk.  Through His Name we have received salvation; through His name Alone.

And there is salvation in no one else for there is no other name under Heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.  Acts 4:12

Jesus Name is Wonderful, Counsellor, Prince of Peace, Almighty God, and Everlasting Father.  He is the Lilly of the Valley and the Bright and Morning Star.  He is the Great I AM, the Alpha and Omega, and the First and the Last.  He is the Bread of Life and the First Fruits of the Resurrection.  He is the Author of and Perfecter of our Faith and the guarantee of a Better Covenant.  He is the Rock from which they received Spiritual Drink and He came as the Light of the World.  He is our Righteousness and the Coming King.  He is my Savior.

Christ Alone.

He did it.  He died.  He rose again.  He is Lord.

Christ Alone.

It's all about Him isn't it. Salvation can be found in no other name. It's when we use His name that the enemy gets upset.  We have a power of attorney to use it to heal the sick, raise the dead and drive out demons.

Keep going Luther, this is good stuff! All glory to Jesus!!

Every Blessing Moray

Thanks Moray for stopping by  I do appreciate your comment.

Anything and everythinge we are as believers is because of Christ.  We cannot boast in ourselves in anyway and it is through reliance on Him that we can make it day to day.

God Bless and Keep the Fatih

Amen!  Oh what a breath of fresh air from the ecumenical garbage I've been coming across the past few days!

Thanks for stopping in and feel free to hang around. It is one thing
to build bridges but entirely different when we throw doctrine over
the side of them.

Great stuff as usual, Luther. The names of Christ always move me. I love how Hebrews says that He is our High Priest and we don't have a High Priest that does not suffer the afflictions that we have, for He came in the flesh and experienced life as we have and can related to our struggles.

There is no other way to the Father and all who think all religions are similar don't realize that non-works based redemption and forgiveness of sins without sacrifice is unique to Christianity alone.

Luther@Living In Grace said...

 thanks Carla....I like how the names of Christ reveal a different aspect of who He is.  If there is any good stuff here it is because of Christ and the change He made in me.  HE did not leave us the option of thinking all things are if you claim the name of Christian then Christ is truly the One and Only

Hey Luther, you seem to have some good stuff on here. I have been sort of following since I saw you "dialogue" with the man who claimed you were a hater a few days back. Keep up the Good work brother! God's richest grace and blessings to you!
"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved-- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus."  Eph 2:4-7

 Thanks for stopping by and commenting Pastor Kevin.  I pray that all I do will honor Him for has saved me and at no time do I try to be a " hater ". 

God bless and Keep the Faith
