The outcome of my faith

PDF

Obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:9.

It quite easy to forget this truth and take our eyes off the main goal of our faith in the midst of the many messages that abound as well as the ones we heap up for ourselves. It is easy to reduce the salvation that God made available to us in Christ as a tool for meeting our earthly needs alone. It is easy to equate the accumulation of wealth, good job, and the comforts of this life as the approval in the sight of God and hence the main goal of our faith. While those who are yet to experience this may feel on the other hand that the goal of their faith is far from being met. This is a dangerous place to be, while it is good to rejoice and give thanks when God blesses us with material blessings, we must reserve the biggest celebration for the ultimate goal of our walk of faith- the salvation of our soul. The material blessings would come and go away, we would leave them behind someday, they serve and fill a temporary void in the life of every human. But the main goal of our faith secures for us eternal peace and a place of rest for our soul, seriously it is the main trophy worth striving for, it is the only trophy which those who do not know Christ cannot lay their hands upon. Hence the need to work on our faith with fear and trembling so that we do not fail to obtain this trophy. But if the only aim of our coming to Christ is to be in the position to flaunt and boast of earthly possessions alone, then we are the most miserable of all God's creation.

1 Corinthians 15:55-57
“?Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
