You are personally responsible for your own salvation.
Philip. 2:12 says "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling."
preacher or minister is going to answer for you
when you stand before Christ,
and you WILL stand before Him.
Does He now see your face staring back at Him
as you search the Scriptures TO TRULY KNOW HIM,
or are you one of those claiming-to-be Christians
who attend church on Sunday, sing a few songs of praise,
place a few dollars in the felt lined plate;
Then go on your way never to think about Jesus until the next Sunday!
to Rightly Divide the Word of Truth.
2 Tim. 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.
implies that the truths presented in the Bible
require dividing at times.
"so that when you go digging for it,
you'll find it!"
that don't hunger enough for the truth
to dig for it
in God's word,
won't find it!
7:21 Not every one that saith unto me,
Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven,
but he that doeth the will of my Father, who is in heaven.
Many will say to me at that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
And in thy name cast out demons?
And in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you;
depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
and it is not an "entitlement program".
But, it was offered as GRACE FOR THOSE WHO TRULY LOVE HIM
AND BELIEVE in HIS SON JESUS CHRIST!
have access to the Word of God. OPEN IT!
