Mark 3: 7,8 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and [from] beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
Grace preaching which is very common today is one of the greatest cause of destruction of souls. It is not that grace is not true. Without grace it is impossible to know God and to be in Him, but not understanding how we receive grace and what that grace is for can cause us to be destroyed.
Bible clearly says grace is received by faith, so if there is faith there is grace, and if there is no faith there is no grace. That means to remain in grace we need to keep the faith and to grow in grace we need to grow in faith.
Being Christian does not matter how we started or what all we did as Christians, what most matters is at the end are we still Christians. Running the race is important but if we do not finish the race, can we claim to qualify?
In today’s scripture many followed Christ but we see in the end only a few stood with Him. Let us not be like those who followed Him for their own benefits but deserted Him when time were hard.
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord desire a pure heart more than worship. Lord we pray we do not be deceived with teachings that take us far from You or fool us to believe ‘all is well’. Lord we pray we understand to be born-again / transformed from within we need to go through fire of change…
This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Ezekiel 18:30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn [yourselves] from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn [yourselves], and live ye.
2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,
8 And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off [and] die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.
