The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ ”) Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
John 1:14-18 NIV
Do we love God? This passage, if there were no other, makes clear that loving God means embracing Jesus Christ as God. I hope you read it slowly, turning each morsel of truth over and savoring it. We have a wonderful Savior, who is full of unfailing love and faithfulness. I so want to be like Him, don’t you?
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. Romans 3:20-22a NIV
No one can get to heaven by following the law. It has to be through Jesus Christ. As He Himself said, … “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 NIV
The world is getting more wicked, and time is getting shorter. Please don’t turn Him away.
