Easter: Faith in Jesus Christ

Easter is about Faith in Jesus Christ

I Believe in Christ

Bruce R. McConkie

 

Resurrected-Christ-Wilson-Ong-212048I believe in Christ; he is my King! With all my heart to him I’ll sing;

I’ll raise my voice in praise and joy, In grand amens my tongue employ.

I believe in Christ; he is God’s Son. On earth to dwell his soul did come.

He healed the sick; the dead he raised. Good works were his; his name be praised.

 

I believe in Christ; oh, blessed name! as Mary’s Son he came to reign

‘Mid mortal men, his earthly kin, to save them from the woes of sin.

I believe in Christ, who marked the path, who did gain all his Father hath,

Who said to men: “Come, follow me, that ye, my friends, with God may be.”

 

I believe in Christ—my Lord, my God! My feet he plants on gospel sod.

I’ll worship him with all my might; He is the source of truth and light.

I believe in Christ, he ransoms me. From Satan’s grasp he sets me free,

And I shall live with joy and love in his eternal courts above.

 

I believe in Christ; he stands supreme! From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;

And while I strive through grief and pain, His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”

I believe in Christ; so come what may, with him I’ll stand in that great day

When on this earth he comes again to rule among the sons of men.

  1. SELECTIVE “FAITH ONLY” SALVATION BY STEVE FINNELL

    FAITH ONLY BELIEVERS IN CHRIST DENY THAT THE NEW COVENANT PLAN OF SALVATION WAS NOT IN EFFECT UNTIL AFTER THE DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS. (THAT WOULD BE ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST) IN ORDER TO BE SAVED WITHOUT BEING BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS. (WATER BAPTISM) THEY PROCLAIM THAT THEY CAN BE SAVED LIKE THE THIEF ON THE CROSS. (LUKE 23:39-43)
    IF MEN TODAY CAN BE SAVED LIKE, THE THIEF ON THE CROSS, THEN WHY CAN THEY NOT BE SAVED LIKE, THE RICH YOUNG RULER?

    LUKE 18:18-22 A RULER QUESTIONED HIM, SAYING, “GOOD TEACHER, WHAT MUST I DO TO INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE?” 19 JESUS SAID TO HIM, “WHY DO YOU CALL ME GOOD? NO ONE IS GOOD EXCEPT GOD ALONE. 20 YOU KNOW THE COMMANDMENTS, ‘DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, DO NOT MURDER, DO NOT STEAL, DO NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER.’ 21 AND HE SAID, “ALL THESE THINGS I HAVE KEPT FROM MY YOUTH.” 22 WHEN JESUS HEARD THIS, HE SAID TO HIM, “ONE THING YOU STILL LACK; SELL ALL THAT YOU POSSESS AND DISTRIBUTE IT TO THE POOR, AND YOU SHALL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN; COME AND FOLLOW ME.”

    WHAT WAS THE RICH MAN’S PLAN OF SALVATION?

    The rich man’s question was what must I do to inherit eternal life?

    1. Do not commit adultery.
    2. Do not murder.
    3. Do not steal.
    4. Do not bear false witness.
    5. Honor your father and mother.
    6. Sell all your possessions and distribute them to the poor.

    Jesus said do this and you shall have treasure in heaven.

    Can men today be saved by, the rich man’s plan of salvation? OF COURSE NOT!

    Can men today be saved by, the thief on the cross plan of salvation? OF COURSE NOT!

    The apostle Peter preached the first gospel sermon under the New Covenant on the Day of Pentecost.

    THE NEW COVENANT PLANT OF SALVATION
    1. FAITH: John 3:16
    2. REPENTANCE: Acts 2:38
    3. CONFESSION Romans 10:9-10
    4. WATER BAPTISM: Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21, Mark 16:16, Acts 22:16, Galatians 3:27, Romans 6:1-7, Colossians 2:12-13.
