It is expressed in the Bible that when God forgives someones sins, and saves them, that they are given eternal life. Once we were dead in our sins; but now that we have become Christians, God has given us eternal life. Paul alludes to this life which God gives in 1 Corinthians 2:11 and [...]
1 Corinthians 2:10 speaks about the Holy Spirit. This is the third Person in the Godhead Trinity. I will preface my comments by saying that I don’t pretend to know all the answers. All we can do is read the Bible, study it, and comprehend what the Lord is telling us. It is with [...]
The preaching of Jesus Christ and what He has done for us is by itself enough to convince sinners of the need to come to Him.

Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the holy [...]
In Romans 8:23-27, Paul talks more about the Holy Spirit and His work for us. We have an earnest expectation that God will liberate us from this sinful body.
In verse 22, we read where the entire creation of God yearns to be liberated from the mortal body which we now inhabit. Verse 23 [...]
