2Ti 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with [him]. We die in order to live. So our suffering with Christ "worketh out for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory" (2Co 4:17). Compare also Ro 8:17 Mt 19:27,28. If we deny [him], he also will deny us. See Mt 10:33.

    The foundation of God is sure : Which is Jesus Christ : His Word : I that have received Jesus as my Lord and Savior : The Lord knows me as His own .He will not tolerate sin in my life : Sin breaks my fellowship with God although it does not sever me from being His child : If I want a clear channel between me and my Lord I must keep myself clean and resist any temptation to sin. But if I sin , I have an advocate with my Father : Jesus Christ : If I confess and forsake the sin : He is faithful and just to forgive and cleanse me from all unrighteousness !!!! Praise God !!!

    for the same bible says that for whosoever that shall call on the name of the lord shall be saved. and it is only the righteous that will be saved. this verse is telling us that God knows his children and the salvation that he promised us is sealed by the resurrection of his son. so in other for us to inherit this we should move away from sin.
  • Solomon B. Smith
    Indeed the foundation of God is Christ Jesus. Therefore, those of us that have Christ should know that God knows us even by name and base upon this we must be percuelar and not confirming to evil because the that a man does live after him. We have account to give to our maker who is the God Almighty. Having the seal which is the holy spirit is vital and we guided by that in our spiritual walk with God.
  • Lilian
    We are saved by God's grace. God's grace are sufficient enough for us as Jesus shed his blood for us to be saved and to have life in abundance. Keep thanking and Praising Jesus for everything he have done into our lives. There is no other above name and there is no other Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rapha and Jehovah Shalom its only Jesus. Thanks be to God. Amen

    We absolutely ought to die in flesh and grow in Spirit for carnal mind is death and Spiritual mind is Life. The Word of God states it clearly that unless you are in Spirit you will not understand the things of the Spirit and The Spirit of the Lord will not dwell where there is darkness for darkness and light shall not meet. As God knows us, each by our names and before we were created in our mom's wombs, we therefore need to pray for the Spirit of Truth. For the truth shall set us free from sin and bondage. For 1 John1v 9-10 says, If you say you have not sinned you are a liar and verse 10 has a promise there " If u confess your sins I Am Just to forgive you" says the Lord. Isaiah says he was bruised for our transgressions. Say no to sin!!!!!!!
  • Samuel Thangarajan
    Be strong in the grace that is in Lord Jesus Christ We have to be strong in the grace.Holding on the things He has accomplished on the cross.His grace is sufficient for us.It is sufficient for all the things we pass through. By His grace a throne is established.God bless you
