The Sure Guide to Eternal Life

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. I charge you therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 4:1.

Those who would learn the things of God, and be assured of them, must know the Holy Scriptures, for they are the Divine revelation. From an early age, children should be taught the Scriptures. The Bible must not be neglected, seldom or never looked into. The Bible is a sure guide to eternal life. The prophets and apostles did not speak from themselves, but delivered what they received of God, 2 Peter 1:21. It is profitable for all purposes of the Christian life. It is of use to all, for all need to be taught, corrected, and convicted by it. Oh, that we may love our Bibles more, and keep them in our hearts, then shall we find benefit, and at last gain the happiness therein promised by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the main subject of both Testaments. We must oppose error by promoting a solid knowledge of the word of truth; and the greatest kindness we can do to children, is to make them early to know the Bible.

In the Epistles…

Paul’s final words to Timothy in this letter carried a charge (a command or injunction) witnessed by God and Christ Jesus. The charge is composed of five specific commands: (1) Preach the word! (2) Be persistent whether the time is favorable or unfavorable. (3) Correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. (4) But you, keep your head in all situations. (5) Endure suffering.

There is coming a day when we will all stand before the Bema, the judgment seat of Christ and each of us will give an accounting for the deeds done in our bodies. What will we hear the Judge say? Will it be, “Well done?” If there is unconfessed sin, we must take it to Jesus and ask for forgiveness. To do otherwise is sheer madness, for He will forgive and wipe the slate (marker board) clean through His blood that was shed for us. Do it now—don’t wait. Amen!

“New Birth” Birthday

I am coming up on my 64th “New Birth,” birthday when I rededicated my life to Christ and He forgave the sins of my youth.  For most of those years I did not think about the importance of the date that Jesus cleansed me from my sins and restored me. I think I should give myself a party for it truly was and is a time of joy.
