πŸ‘‘ The Word Of Truth for Today

In Eph. 1:13 the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and believing β€œthe Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation.” This declaration is substantiated by many other passages of Scripture. Our Lord said: β€œHe that heareth… and believeth… hath everlasting life” (John 5:24). This at a time when sacrifices and baptism were still required for the remission of sins. Even then men had to hear and believe to be saved, for β€œfaith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom. 10:17).

Now, however, salvation is received by hearing and believing alone. Works for salvation are not merely unnecessary; they are forbidden. Today salvation is β€œto him that worketh not,Β butΒ believeth” (Rom. 4:5). β€œFor by grace are ye saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God:Β not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph. 2:8,9).

God has changed His dealings with men from time to time down through the ages, teaching one lesson at a time. This is why it is so important to note the dispensational distinctions in Scripture, β€œrightly dividing the Word of truth.”

Once the works of the Law were required for salvation: β€œBut now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested” (Rom. 3:21) and men are saved solely by faith in Christ, β€œbeing justified freely by [God’s] grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 3:24). We are saved, then, as we hear and believe what Paul calls, β€œthe Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation” (Eph. 1:13), and we are established in the faith as we obey II Tim. 2:15: β€œrightly dividing the Word of truth.” source

Bible Verse for 12/26/19

Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. — Luke 2:28-32
