This week Pastor Colin is sharing about the Liberating Law of the Spirit from Romans 8:1-2. Firstly, we need to consider how we are saved. Someone once said, “What do you have to do to get to heaven?”
So I answered, “You have to talk to God and admit you’re a sinner in need of God’s grace and forgiveness. Then you have to ask Him to forgive all your sins and wash them away by His blood. Then you need to ask Him to come into your life and be your Lord and Master (to Rule over your life and to lead you and guide you) everyday from this time forward.”
Question. “And what do you have to do to go to hell?”
Justification is an act of God, not man! Salvation was designed by God for Man, so a study of how that works is important:- Man was created by God with a spirit, a soul and a body! The spirit is regenerated (make alive, or saved) when we are Born Again or we accept Jesus Christ as Saviour as explained above. The soul is being regenerated, or saved by becoming more “holy” (becoming more like God every day, having purity of heart, thought and action), by submitting to and following the leading of the Holy Spirit everyday. The Body will be regenerated when we see Jesus face to face, or after death when we are taken into heaven.
Many Christians today do not understand this because they neglect to read the Word of God (the Bible) daily and study it to show yourself approved (2 Timothy 2:15)
