Hi Friends, I hope you all had a great mother's day weekend like I did. The weekend was spent hanging out with friends and family and culminated in a nice dinner in church right after the service. It still feels a little chilly in the mornings and evenings in Minnesota and it has been very cloudy the last couple of days with occasional rainfall therefore I did not have any trouble getting dressed for the church service on Sunday. For one, I knew I wanted to wear pants to keep warm and since I also knew that I was going to be around food and kids for a good part of the day, I decided to wear dark colors. After I picked this brown pants I purchased from T. J. Maxx years ago, I remembered that I had the perfect pair of shoes to go with it; my grape and brown color Jessica Simpson Cut-out, Colie Pumps! I decided to go with minimal jewelry because of the busy and loud outfit; grape colored jacket, animal prints shirt, brown pants, cut-out Colie pumps..win! win!!…:-)
Do you see some dandelions sticking out of my right pocket? My little girl picked them up from the grass and said; "Mum, you still need more flowers because it is mother's day; take these and hold them while you take your pictures." How sweet!..:-). They dropped from my pocket a while later and I forgot to fix my right pocket…:-). Talk about wardrobe malfunction but I had so much fun. It feels good to be around family and people who truly love you and who you truly love. That being said; let's love one another and everyone as ourselves and let's continue to pray for our little girls to be freed so that they can go home to their families.
Pants: T. J. Maxx
Clutch: (wallet used as clutch (T. J. Maxx)
Shoes: Jessica Simpson Cut-out Colie Pumps
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week.
CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?ReplyDelete
On the Day of Pentecost Peter quoted the prophet Joel (Acts 2:21'And it shall be that everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.')
To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge the authority and power of the Lord, and follow in obedience by meeting the terms of pardon.
The apostle Peter did not tell those on the Day of Pentecost to say the "sinner's prayer." Saying the "sinner's prayer" is not calling on the name of the Lord.
Peter preached the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Peter declared the Jesus was Lord and Christ. (Acts 2: 22-26) They obviously believed Peter's preaching because they asked the question(Acts 2:37 ....."Brethren what shall we do?")
Peter did not tell them to say the "sinner's prayer." What was Peter's response to their question? (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.)
THE NARRATIVE OF CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
1. FAITH: Believe in the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
2. CONFESSION: Acknowledge Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God.
3. REPENTANCE: Make the commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.
4. WATER BAPTISM: Be immersed into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.
HOW DID THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? (Acts 8:25-40
1. Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:35)
2. He confessed Jesus as The Christ the Son of God. (Acts 8:37)
3. He was baptized in water. Immersed by Philip. (Acts 8:38-39)
The Ethiopian eunuch did not say the sinner's pray nor was he asked to do so by Philip.
Romans 10:13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."
Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge His power and authority and confess Him as Lord and Christ . (Acts 2:26,Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10) To call on the Name of the Lord is to repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)
WE ARE TOLD TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO BE SAVED.
We are never told we are saved by "faith only." We are never told that saying the "sinner's prayer" is calling on the name of the Lord.
IF SAYING THE "SINNER'S PRAYER" IS NOT A REQUIREMENT FOR SALVATION? THEN WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION.
1. Faith: John 3:16
2. Belief and baptism: Mark 16:16
3. Confession and belief: Romans 10:9-10
4. Born of water and Spirit: John 3:5
5. Grace and faith: Ephesians 2:8
6. Buried through baptism: Roman 6:4-5
7. Water baptism: 1 Peter 3:20-21
8. Baptism: Acts 22:16
9. Baptized into Christ: Galatians 3:27
10. Believe: Acts 16:30-31
11. Repentance and baptism: Acts 2:38
12. God's mercy, water baptism, and the Holy Spirit: Titus 3:5
13. Water baptism: Colossians 2:12-13
14. Repentance: Acts 3:19
IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THESE REQUIREMENTS---THEN YOU HAVE CALLED ON THE NAME OF THE LORD!
