1 John 2:5 ESV “but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him:”

Slanting Strokes

There are Christians living across the world without God’s Word. There are poeple in unknown parts of the world living their life biblically with a simple and straight exposition of His Word. The fact of the matter is getting perfected by the Scriptures. Whoever gives into the teaching of the gospel of Christ, he or she shows the enough room for the evidence of Salvation or acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ as his or her personal saviour, attending a locally instituted Bible believing church for gospel-entered fellowship and breaking of bread, a strong biblical teaching for discipleship and of fervent and corporate prayer for each other.

Philippians 4:6-7 ESV “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. [7] And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”


We, being repentant of our sins, saved by the Lord Jesus Christ for eternity through our faith in His name (Jesus Christ) alone, our Christian life revolves round “devoting”ourselves to the locally Bible believing church teaching, “the fellowship” that bears the accountability of building each other in the faithfulness of Christ and the truth of the gospel of Christ, “the breaking of bread” wherein we reinforce the value of the sacrificial death of our Lord Jesus Christ and importance the sharing of the Gospel to each other in the church, and the earnest “prayer” for each other in the local church (Acts 2:42 ESV). In this kind of Bible-believing life style, we believers are instructed to not to worry about anything that bothers our spiritual and biblical faithfulness and maturity in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 118:14 ESV “The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.”

The Psalmist asserts that The Lord Gas has become his salvation. My concern is what has driven the Psalmist to confess such a statement in the world? There are two essential elements of Christian belief: acknowledging the fact that the Lord God our complete strength and affirming the Lord our mouthful of song. It is impossible to take refuge in the Lord Jesus for our complete deliverance of sins, so long as we rely on our human strength and man-made contentment or self-sufficiency.

Micah 6:8 ESV “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”


Our Lord God expects us humans to fulfill three essential things in life. First, we should do justice to our life that is to repent of our sins and to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. Without the Lord’s salvation, there’s no hope for our life. Second, we should be after godly love and affection. Let our kindness should be known to our fellow believers and non-believing neighbourhood. Third, we must just humble ourselves to the Lord Jesus Christ and learn the Word of God. The virtue of humility cannot be taught but caught only when we walk in accordance with the gospel of Christ. Humility is determined by the application of the Word of God in our everydayness.
