Dominic Lyda calls for more Andrews, people willing to bring individuals to Christ. Andrew worked unnoticed in the background always bringing someone to Jesus. He brought Peter, his brother. He brought the lad with his sack lunch of two fish and 5 hushpuppies that fed the 5000 men plus women and children. He sought no honor for himself but brought so many to Christ one and a time, mostly unnoticed.
Eternal Life is a gift from God to everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as his person savior. There is no way to earn it. No one really deserves it. It's a gift so that we can experience and fully enjoy life as God intended it to be lived. He also guarantees it. We know if we really have it! We exist to enjoy the blessing of God. It's a done deal for those adopted into God's family by faith in His Son.
It takes the Word of God and the Spiritual death of Jesus Christ to deliver salvation. We have to know the truth that sets us free. We have to know that Jesus suffered separation from the Father; giving us His righteousness while taking our sin upon Himself. When we "buy in" by faith--investing ourselves totally in Jesus Christ--God adopts us into His family forever. God made it possible. Jesus paid the price. We simply believe and trust that Jesus did what God the Father wanted.That's salvation.
Our faith grows and our confidence deepens as we test, try, and prove our faith.Faith is not a leap in the dark. It's proven revelation from God transmitted through our Spiritual nature. It's our only defense against a false slant to God's truth
You complete your life when you accept Jesus as your Savior. God creates a whole new you. It's not just a rehab of the old self. You become a spiritual life in a flesh body--body, soul, and Spirit. It's the third dimension--the Spirit--that makes you new and eternally a child of God.
