Starting Over

No matter where we are, what we've done, who we are, where we've been, we are built on the rock of Christ, our foundation, our Saviour, and we can start over.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

No matter what struggles we have in life, friends that we lose, troubles that we have, work, health, family, the Lord is our rock,


“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”  1 Peter 5:7
Our life is but a vapour (James 4:14), where nothing lasts forever, except the Rock of our Saviour, the Lord, who will never let us down.  Let us turn to the Lord, and live right.  In the words of Terry Pratchett, “It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.”

Our life will be over before we know it, and what is the worldly advice?  Get an education and get rich.  Plenty of people with education, with money, who are spiritually poor, and lost, sadly, without hope, and without assurance.  Let us turn to the Lord, and live for the Lord, read our Bible, witness to people, bring people to the Lord, encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ, and live right,
'Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.' James 4:8
None of us are good, we are all sinners saved by grace.  Who is the biggest sinner?  One sin is enough to make us guilty of all (James 2:10).  We have no righteousness of our own, we are saved by placing our faith 100% on recognizing our guilt as sinners, and believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God, God in the flesh, who, without sin, sacrificed Himself on the cross, died, was buried, and bodily rose on the third day, paying a price He did not owe because we never could, and we never can.

We are saved entirely by faith, not by our works, but by the gift of God, and so it is, that we place ourself in His hand, our Rock,

'He only is my rock and my salvation:
he is my defence; I shall not be moved.' Psalm 62:6


Let us live right for God, and draw nigh unto God, and He will draw nigh unto us.

'A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.'
Proverbs 18:24

 

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
