Eternal

A Symbol of Sacrifice

oQC81OHcl4Q

The cross has become the symbol of Christianity, but it’s so much more than a mere piece of jewelry worn around the neck.  The crucifixion of Christ is a central doctrine of our faith, and understanding it correctly is essential for eternal life.  In fact, Paul was convinced the cross was the most vital subject he could address.

Commentary from the In Touch Devotional by Charles Stanley, May 18, 2020.

Limitless grace and kindness

Ephesians 2;7

Salvation, of course, is very much for the believer’s blessing, but it is even more for the purpose of eternally glorifying God for bestowing on believers His endless and limitless grace and kindness.  The whole of heaven glorifies Him for what He has done in saving sinners (Eph. 3:10; Rev. 7:10-12).

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Ephesians 2:7.

The Way Which Leads to Life

The Narrow Gate

The narrow gate is by faith, only through Christ, constricted and precise.  It represents true salvation in God’s way that leads to life eternal.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 7:13,14.

An Entirely New Existence

Believers will experience an entirely new existence in which they will have perfect spiritual relationships with everyone else.  Believers will be like angels in that they will be spiritual, eternal beings who will not die.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Mark 12:25.
