Memorization Monday - Salvation a Free Gift

For those of you who are trying to work along with me in reviewing or memorizing scripture based on a topical approach, here is the third verse under the heading of Salvation – A Free Gift

Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”

Consider the Resurrection

Back in April as we were approaching Good Friday, I suggested that we take some time to consider the cross. At the time, I said that we would use the month of May to consider the implications of the resurrection of Christ in our lives. Well, I have just had four or five of the busiest weeks that I have had in a long time. It seems like so many important things have suffered because of the requirements of the urgent. I’m trying to refocus and get myself back on track.

So, I would like to move forward with the plan of thinking and writing about Christ’s resurrection during May and probably into June as well. The verse I would like us to think about and to launch our discussion is Philippians 3:10 “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.”

I think we should ask ourselves if we have the same desire as Paul had? Do we want the power of the resurrection in our lives? How does it look to know Him and have the power of His resurrection?

Let’s talk about this a little bit. You can either respond on the Faithful Men blog or join the Facebook discussion group on this topic.

Memorization Monday - Salvation a Free Gift

I don’t know where the past two weeks have gone. I’m sorry for having missed last Monday. It’s time for me to get back on track.

This is the second verse under the heading, “Salvation – A Free Gift
Our verse is Romans 3:24 “Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

Let’s never forget that our salvation is a free gift. Never ever add anything to the gospel. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone.
