Experiencing the Precious Blood of Christ in Our Christian Life Today [with video]

As Christians, we realize that Jesus shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sins and that because of this we can receive Him and be saved from eternal perdition. But once we’re born again, what is our relationship with Christ’s blood? What does the blood of Christ mean to us right now, today, in our Christian lives? Take a look at the short video below to find out three applications of the...

What Happens When a Person Gets Saved?

When we repent to God and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, some wonderful things happen to us. We are forgiven of all our sins and delivered from God’s condemnation and eternal punishment. As a result, for the first time in our lives we have untold happiness and peace. We can’t help but love the Lord Jesus who died for us on the cross.

3 Problems That Can Only Be Solved by the Blood of Jesus

In previous posts we discussed that as believers in Jesus Christ we can be fully assured that we’re really saved and that we can never lose our salvation—it’s eternally secure. But since we can’t lose our salvation, some might have this question: “Does that mean it doesn’t matter how we live after we’re saved? Are we free to do whatever we want? After all, nothing can change my salvation.” But...

What Do I Do When I Sin after Being Saved?

When we first repented to God and received Jesus Christ as our Savior, we were forgiven of all our sins. What peace flooded our hearts! And God’s Word assures us that our salvation is for all eternity and can never be undone. But although we’re saved, we know from our personal experience we’re not immune to sin. We still sin after salvation, despite our good intentions and efforts to avoid...

3 Major Steps in God’s Plan of Salvation after the Fall of Man

We discussed previously how we were created by God for His own purpose and plan but became fallen, sinful, and unable to live in a way that fulfills God’s plan. The consequences of the fall of mankind are tragic, and we see the effect both in our own lives and everywhere we look today. But God can never be defeated! And though frustrated, God’s plan cannot be derailed. In His wisdom, God took...

The Three Parts of Man—Spirit, Soul, and Body

We human beings are complicated. Every one of us is unique, with different backgrounds and personalities. But with respect to how God created us, we’re actually all the same. The Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 that we were all created with three basic parts: a spirit, a soul, and a body: “And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body...

How Can We Maintain the Joy of Our Salvation? [with video]

When we first believe in Christ, receiving Him as our Savior, we experience great joy. But sometimes, over the course of our Christian life, that joy begins to fade. We wonder what happened, and if we’ll ever get that joy back. How can we maintain the joy of our salvation? Find out in this video, based on chapter 2 of Basic Elements of the Christian Life, vol. 1, which you can read for free here...

Will God Keep Forgiving Me?

Christians know they aren’t immune to sin. But what happens when we commit the same sins over and over? Isn’t this disappointing to God? Will He become angry and, eventually, refuse to forgive us? How long does it take before that happens? As believers in Christ, we need to be clear concerning sin, forgiveness, and God’s heart toward us. When we don’t know or we forget what the Bible says...

What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden—the Consequences of Adam and Eve’s Choice

In a previous post, we saw that God warned Adam and Eve not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in order to protect them. That tree represented Satan, the enemy of God and the source of death. Sadly, Adam and Eve disobeyed God. This was serious enough, but by eating the fruit of that tree they were also corrupted with Satan’s evil nature. In this post, we’ll see the consequences...

What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden?

Most of us are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. (If you’d like a refresher, you can read it here.) The disobedience of Adam and Eve is usually what gets our attention in this story, and this makes sense. Disobeying God is a serious matter. But have you ever wondered what was so bad about eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? How could doing...
