I believe that God’s salvation is like an elevator ride from the basement to the top floor of a huge skyscraper. Jesus is my elevator. I got in Christ years ago. I’m abiding in Christ now and if I don’t step out of Christ on the wrong floor, I’ll arrive in the future at God’s penthouse on top of the building.
Grace opens the door for me to have a relationship with God. Faith is how I walk out that relationship every day.
Faith abandoned isn’t faith. It’s unbelief. Don’t stop before the top!
Christian community matters. Jesus builds His community thru Spirit-led interaction when Christ-followers gather to hear and obey His voice. By gathering as Jesus’ town meeting and all being led by the Spirit as we serve and encourage one another, we strengthen our faith and help each other stay close to the risen Jesus.
