One Life

There is one God and one Truth. That one Truth brings the one success, which is the one end of all, that is, the glory of God. His glory He shares with no other, including and especially in man’s salvation. Salvation comes only by the grace of God and not by works. And God’s grace is available to the humble. Men, who humble themselves before God, submit themselves to Him, and then resist the devil, will have Satan flee from them. Draw nigh to God. Cleanse your hands and your hearts. Without faith it is impossible to please Him, but by faith you might receive a good report. Faith comes by the hearing of His Word. His Word is Truth. His Word is the path to please God, to bring God pleasure, the purpose of our existence. And the church is the pillar and ground of the Truth. We please God through the church. We love the Lord by keeping His Words, His Sayings, and His Words. Happy are we if we do them. He who does the will of God abides forever—not him who says, Lord, Lord, but who does the will of God. Do not merely mouth words. Do the will of God in the church of which Jesus is the Head. Worship Him. Offer Him your self as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto Him. Lose your life for His sake, because what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but lose His own soul? Forsake not the assembling of ourselves together.
