Romans 15:7 (NKJV) Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

 

God receives all who will believe in His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. All who believe in Jesus for who He is, God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Triune Godhead. And believe in what Jesus has done for us on the Cross at Calvary, will be saved. For the Word of God tells us, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12 NKJV). All who accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior will be saved. They will experience the New Birth, that is they will be born again by the Spirit. And they will be children of God, because of what His Son Jesus Christ has done for us. Faith, however my friend, is not simply having and understanding of who Christ is and what He has done for us. Saving faith is faith in action. Meaning, you do more than just say you believe. You believe in, you believe into, you believe upon Jesus Christ as your Savior. Saving faith is a faith in action. Meaning, you are submitting, obeying, and following Christ’s commands and you are staying in His will. In other words, you are demonstrating your faith by your good works. As the Apostle James has said, “But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works” (James 2:18 NKJV). Is the Lord Jesus Christ your Savior? Have you trusted in Jesus? Have you believed into Him? Are you resting in Him? Is the Lord Jesus Christ your complete Savior? Are you completely depending on Him? If you are, then your faith will have an impact on your life. And the evidence of, or the fruit of, your salvation will be your good works. Not that good works produces faith, but faith produces good works. Now, as believers, we are all part of the body of Christ. We are all part of His church. So, we ought to receive one another, just as our Lord Jesus Christ has received us. We ought to be able to put aside our doctrine differences, and come together on the fact that Jesus Christ is God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Triune Godhead, and what He has done for us on the Cross at Calvary. This is what really matters.

 

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
