Authentic Christian II - Pilgrims on the Journey of Salvation
I just want to cheer y'all on, as we're all on the journey of salvation today.
We have been saved, we are being saved, and we will be saved.
So let's (1) continue on with perseverance,
(2) grow stronger into mature disciples,
and (3) encourage one another and get each others' backs.
On this journey of faith, Hebrews 12:2 is KEY:::
"Fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith."
I have come to realize,
that there is only one ultimate application for every message or command or goal in life:::
Union with Christ.
It is that abiding in the vine,
keeping in step with the Spirit,
fixing your eyes on Jesus,
that is the secret to everything.
Jesus is all I need, all I want, and He is the answer to literally everything.
Now, of course, there could be some supplementary wisdom and tips that could help us on our spiritual journey, but they are all supplementary after all.
Communion with Christ, intimacy with Him is our essential need.
May we grow deeper into the riches of Union with Christ.
