2 Maccabees Chapter 10 Discussion

  • Thereisagulf on 2 Maccabees 10
    An afternoon meditation.

    Justification- We must believe that Jesus is the Christ and that we confess by Faith that he is the only hope in our (fallen man's) redemption and restoration in the Will of God. God has shown by His love and His mercy His Christ and provided in advance of our fallen condition, grace to believe. By this grace He can turn lost souls towards His Son. We can with our minds and our voice make a choice to believe in the Son and that we are sinners that must be saved by Grace. We must also carry this Faith from the mind by grace (again) to the condition for the foundation in our Justification. This is our free choice.

    Justification by Faith- is that lasting foundation. To remain Justified we must die to sin (God's Grace) by the obedience of the Cross in our repentance. Repentance is foundation where our emptied self (dead) life can be restored (made alive) in the Fullness of the Spirit of Christ. There is another condition to remain justified by Faith and that is obedience to the Spirit. We can turn to this Spirit (by choice) often for our assurance that we remain in the Lord's Will, or possibly our realization that we have strayed and need to return to this Will and fullness of Spirit in obedience.
