Live by Faith

Posted: March 30, 2015 in Holy Spirit is at work today: Fruits of Love

Ancient words from the prophet Habakkuk (2:4): “I, the Lord, REFUSE TO ACCEPT anyone who is PROUD. Only those who LIVE BY FAITH are acceptable to me.” God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, so this key to our eternal destiny is so very important today in 2015. All the paths to God devised by mankind are considered as PRIDE to Him. God’s path through faith in his beloved son Jesus, the perfect Passover lamb, born as a sacrifice for sin — a substitute for the Old Testament’s practice of blood from an unblemished animal sacrifice being offered by the priests for the sins of God’s people. This year the ancient Jewish celebration of Passover coincides with Good Friday, the day God’s only son, the perfect sacrifice willingly gave his life — to be lifted up on a cross of wood as a perfect sacrifice.  While Jesus walked in the flesh amongst mankind, he asked the one most defining question one must face in their own lifetime. It can only be answered individually, not by a family or corporately: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36) This same quote is recorded also by Jesus’ disciples Luke and Matthew…three times in the Bible = a truth so important it must not be missed.

The way is narrow — but chosen for us by our Creator — on His terms. Why not choose life this Easter season?
