One of the most disturbing verses in the Bible is: “The word of the Lord was rare in those days.” This was a period of history when God’s people had turned their back on Him, and God’s word was no longer heard. Because the people didn’t want to hear from God, they drifted in darkness for many years. Are you in a season of silence right now, wondering where God is? Has it felt like forever since the word of God has gripped your heart? Perhaps this message will be a timely encouragement to you today!
The Believer’s Position in the Grace of God
How many good works does it take to earn salvation? How clean do you have to make yourself before God will accept you? The fact is, salvation cannot be earned. Salvation is a gift from God, given out of His great love, mercy and grace to all who believe. It is only through faith in Christ Jesus that we can be transformed from death to life, from darkness to light, from hopelessness to having the unshakable certainty of eternity in heaven! Have you ever trusted in Christ to save you, or are you still trying to earn it?
