By Grace You Have Been Saved

In reading the book of Exodus, I was ministered to by the Holy Spirit as I read Exodus 20:24-26, about the making of the altar on which to offer the sacrifices for sin. God told Moses how to make it, and explained that if they made an altar out of stones, they were not to be hewn stones ,for if they used a chisel on the stones, it profaned the altar.

Why?

It was a type of our meeting with God under the New Covenant made through the blood of God’s Son, Jesus.

We have to come solely on the merits of His offering…no works of ours can be added.

“For by Grace you have been saved, through faith, and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8

But, you say, “What about ‘faith without works is dead’?” That’s true too, and Biblical, for if the Spirit of Christ lives in you, He will shine through you, and the works will follow because of Him and not because of you.

How freeing that is!

    information, is there any other website which provides
    such stuff in quality?

  18. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for
    your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  19. After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it.

  22. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind
    in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Cheers!

  23. At this time I am ready to do my breakfast, when having my breakfast coming yet again to read additional news.

    a perfect means? I’ve a venture that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such
    information.

  25. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get
    the issue fixed soon. Thanks
