As Christians we are to walk in holiness. what does it mean to walk in holiness? well simply put it means to work out what God is working in, Saving faith is not praying a little prayer asking Jesus into your heart and then going about your life like He never gave you a commandment to obey, too many are professing salvation yet live like the world, they have no desire to grow in grace or holines and yet they are decieved into thinking they are christians because they believe in Jesus, unfortunetly the Jesus they believe in is not the one of the bible, it is a Jesus that is conjured up in there carnal minds that overlooks sin, one that says do what you want, i love you. That is not the Jesus of the scriptures, the Jesus of the scriptures calls us to die. The true Gospel must be proclaimed, it is the only one that saves, We as professing believers need to Believe God's word and stop adding to it or taking away from it and start proclaiming the word as it is written. God bless all my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Indeed we do! We are saved by grace, not by works of righteousness but the natural product of a changed heart is a changed life. A changed life demonstrates to those around us that we are a new creation in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God made flesh. If we profess to follow Him and yet refuse to follow/obey God's Word, exactly who are we actually following?
