The Foundation of Christianity!

By Lambsaved

The entire foundation of the Old Testament is based on one thing only – awaiting the Messiah, who will redeem us, and we know the Messiah, he is Jesus Christ. This is the foundation of Christianity. All the scriptures talk about him. He is the Lamb of God who establishes the new covenant replacing the old. It is the grace of God, his mercy that sends us the Son, and our blessing to be under the wing of the Son, who loves us by offering himself up to pay for our sins, and gives us the opportunity to call God – father!
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
It is Jesus Christ on whom we have pinned our hopes. He is the salvation, the truth, the gate and the way. It is our faith in him that that adds the chutzpah to our steps. The promised crown of life that awaits us if we abide in Jesus Christ, and he in us; we live by faith, and what does that mean:
“So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentarily affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look at not what we can see but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
Belief in Jesus Christ and abiding in his word, while following the path laid by the apostles and prophets is the foundation of Christianity. Christianity is not about showing up for Church on a Sunday morning or devoting two hours a week for a religion you espouse. It is life itself, not a counterfeit life which you lead currently but the real thing; it is the word of God that heals you and the Holy Spirit that opens the living waters.Don’t be complacent thinking that you have a soul, which amounts to nothing. It is the spirit of God that is meaningful and how you deal with it is based on how strong your foundations in Christianity are.Make a start and read the Bible. It is not someone else’s job to do it for you – it is your job. So shake off the dust and get real – honor the Son and abide in his word.Taste the Lord!
