THE FOUR B’S OF OUR FAITH !
In my outline Bible Study I list four truths that our Christian faith is built upon. There are other Bible truths, but without these 4 we would be without hope and salvation.
I. BOOK (The book of course is the Bible)
A. The Bible is a window in this prison-world, through which we may look into eternity.
1. Psalm 119:105 (KJV) Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
2. God’s Word is the way the Holy Spirit leads us. Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
II. BLOOD (The blood is the precious blood of Jesus)
A. Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
B. 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
III. BIRTH (The is the Second Birth)
A. Jesus said in John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
B. Salvation depends upon Christ's work for us, while rewards depend upon our works for Christ.
1. Born once you die twice but be born twice you only die once.
IV. BLESSED HOPE (The Second Coming of Christ)
A. Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
1. Encouraging hope. John 14:3 Spoken to encourage.
2. Comforting hope. 1 Thess 4:13-18
3. Motivating hope. 1 Cor 15:50-58
4. Purifying hope. 1 John 3:2-3
SO LET US PRAISE GOD, STAND ON THE SOLID ROCK OF SALVATION, REJOICE, LOOK TO THE LORD FOR THIS PRESENT LIFE AND LOOK TO THE HEAVENS FOR ONE DAY SOON HE WILL RETURN FOR HIS PEOPLE.
