“Grace saved us without our responsibility involved in it but to stay in grace requires our responsibility”
God’s word was clear when it talked about Eternal Redemption which was bought for us by Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, HAVING OBTAINED ETERNAL REDEMPTION FOR US.
“The fact that God has obtained eternal redemption for us, we need to learn how to give expression to it.”
It’s clear that Jesus obtained eternal redemption for us as He entered into the holy place by His own blood. Another thing you’ll see in this wise is what Jesus did for us
Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering he hath PERFECTED FOR EVER THEM THAT ARE SANCTIFIED.
When you see all of this, you see very clearly that this talks about being perfected forever and having received eternal redemption. Now the thing is, does this leave us without a work? Work of faith is not bad, actually faith demands a work. Work reflect your faith truly. Faith that is not lived is not faith. This take me to, how then do you walk as someone that has been saved eternally or perfected forever. It’s by a work.
“Eternal redemption demands expression than confession”
Remember I said, work reflects your faith and this is also how work reflect that you have being saved eternally. What is the work? Jesus never died for us without us living for what He died for. The work we are to show is to actually eternally live as He is. We are to live out or express truly that we are eternally saved by living a life of Christ.
“Our eternal redemption life demands us to live eternally saved by living in righteousness and not to hold on to iniquity.”
The nature of eternal redemption is to live in righteousness and not to look back to our former lives. Scripture says that when we look back, we are declared unfit for the kingdom of God.
Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, NO MAN, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
The nature of eternal redemption is to live as He is, the nature of Him is that He loved righteousness and He hate iniquity.
Hebrews 1:9 THOU HAST LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND HATED INIQUITY; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
For when we live as He is, by loving righteousness and to hate iniquity then are we truly giving expression to the eternal redemption that He obtained for us. Never forget this: we are eternally saved to live eternally save by living as He is.
