In this session, John Bailey addresses the common question of how we know if we’re saved.
God's Eternal Pursuit
Grace is one of God's greatest gifts to us, and it should dynamically change our lives. This week, John Bailey explores how we must grasp the full implications of God's grace.
John Bailey dives into scripture to show how the simplest faith is what sparks our new life with God.
In this session, John explores how this practically impacts believers’ everyday choices and mentality toward God.
The New Covenant is something you can never grow tired of studying. As heirs of this covenant, our duty and our joy is to learn more about this great inheritance we have in Christ.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time for war and a time for peace” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, ESV).
Years ago, I experienced a severe back injury. I used to do long-distance bike riding; but after the injury, I was unable to move like I had been before. I gained probably 20-25 pounds. That shocked me a bit, so I started working on getting my health back, exercising and trying to eat right. A serious problem is I hate vegetables. They’re awful, but I try to eat my greens.
Everyone wants a promise to be fulfilled quickly, especially if it’s from God and we know it will be very good.
When we are tempted to become impatient with the Lord, when God seems like he’s moving slowly, we must understand that he often cannot fulfill the promise he has given us until his character and nature are more fully formed in us. There can be great danger when any measure of truth and revelation about God that we have been given is not yet fully formed in us.
