Discussion for Matthew 21

  • Pat H.
    The symbol of Baptism we confess all of our sins to the Father and we are baptised with water that we have been washed in the blood of Jesus and have been cleansed so when we arise from the baptism we walk with Jesus in our hearts as well as in our actions. Baptism alone does not save you; but our faith in Jesus can!
  • A disciple
    Pam; The reason for repentance from dead works, is to serve the LORD by good works and bear good fruit unto God! If you read the story of the beginning you will see that the human species was alienated and made unfit for God because of sin. So God announced Christ must come to undo the works of the devil and reconcile us to God. If we don't produce good fruit we will be cut down as worthless!
  • Pam barnwell
    It's the blood that's merits. us into heaven, we cannot live good enough, good morel people still has to be saved by the blood of Christ. If we could get there on works, we would still be under law and Christ wouldn't had to die.
  • A disciple
    Lou; are you saying then, that we should just dismiss everything the LORD said about being wise and doing what He says? And what about ALL the writings of the Apostles and Prophets, who spoke in the Name of the LORD, condemning the wicked for NOT keeping God's commandments? Do you think God is afraid that we might think we can save ourselves if we obey Him? "IF YOU LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS."
  • A disciple
    Lou; Shouldn't your faith be seen in a real conversion and new course in life; and the effect of His saving grace be reflected in your new manner of life? Jesus said many, many times; that if we didn't DO whatsoever He says, and we don't bear fruit; that we would be cut off and die, and NOT be permitted to enter into His kingdom. We keep His commandments and do what He says because we love Him!
  • Lou
    Ricky, and Disciple, you have understanding. There is one thing required for salvation, as stated in John 3:16. We should dismiss any idea that our actions have any part in our salvation, nothing we do is good enough that it should add to what Jesus did. We cannot "help" Christ to save us, we are capable of believing, and the Word builds up our believing (faith)...Jesus is The Living Word of God.
