Jesus A Gospel Of Love

Uncategorized , , ,

There is a false gospel which teaches that Jesus A Gospel Of Love, and died for your sins; and therefore you will be saved, even if you live in halfhearted or lukewarm devotion to God, or even worse – even if you sin often and ask for forgiveness every time you sin.

Jesus truly loves us, even the sinner, but that is why He said, “Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” (Matt 4:17 [WEB]) And Peter said, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38 [WEB])

When we are saved by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from our sins, and we receive the Holy Spirit, we must repent of our sins and make a complete turn unto a righteous life before God and a life completely devoted to God. We cannot continue in sin and assume we will be saved. We must, enabled by the Holy Spirit, repent and live in righteousness, and in devotion to our God, unto maturity in the faith, and living out our calling as a Christian. So can we have peace and joy in the Lord. Understand this.

1 John 4:7-11 [WEB]
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves has been born of God, and knows God. 8 He who doesn’t love doesn’t know God, for God is love. 9 By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another.

Luke 10:29-37 [WEB]
29 But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?”
30 Jesus answered, “A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, 34 came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, ‘Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.’ 36 Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?”
37 He said, “He who showed mercy on him.”
