Championing A Faith That Works. Anabaptist Voice is published quarterly and seeks to interpret Bible truth in a simple childlike way, and to apply Bible teaching to the lives of living saints in a practical manner.
We have only one hope of salvation. That is to crucify our carnal mind, receive the “mind of Christ" and be born of the Spirit. The Bible teaches us that sin is overcome, not by determination, but by giving up—by surrendering our all in faith to Christ, and being born of the Spirit.
Sooner or later in life every person will face some very important questions. Many will agree that question number one should be, “What must I do to be saved?" not whom will I marry or what career do I want. Since salvation is what matters most there are five things you ought to know about it.
How can a person know the right way to heaven? Jesus Christ said, “I AM THE WAY, . . . no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” No one can come to the Father any other way. Only through shed blood of Jesus Christ can we be saved. Friend, are you in the right way?
Jesus Christ is coming again. The Bible says so. But why is He coming? What will He do when He comes? Why should His coming be important to me or you? To help answer those questions, let’s review why He came the first time.
In Pharaoh's house there were frogs in the bedrooms, on the seats, in the food. Yet when God let him decide when the curse of frogs should be removed, he said, "Tomorrow". It seems foolish that he asked for one more night with the frogs but in reality many of us are doing the same thing.
Without repentance we cannot be right toward God for we all have sinned against Him. True repentance hates sin and avoids it all costs. "God, be merciful to me, a sinner," should be the prayer of each of us.
The Holy Spirit pleads with lost souls to be saved today. Too many people put Him off and say, "There's plenty of time, I'll get saved later." If you are doing this do you realize the danger you are putting yourself in?
