In this paper, I have tried to give the basic issues of the Christian Faith.
I heard about a group of pastors who were discussing on Monday....
the events of the previous day in their various churches.
Several of the pastors were complaining about several things...
when they noticed that an elderly pastor had not voiced any complaints.
They asked him how he could stay 25 yrs. at the same church....
with seemingly few (if any) complaints.
He replied, "Raise larger issues brethren, raise larger issues!"
In John 14:6 we have the basic issues in that Jesus is:
The Way, The Truth and The Life....
Without The Way, no journey can be taken...
Without The Truth, no truth can be known....
Without The Life, no life can really be lived.
The purpose of this paper is to help us enjoy and appropriate into our lives....
The Way, The Truth and The Life.
I hope/pray that they give you Blessed Assurance for now....and for Eternity!
Words: Fanny Crosby (1820-1915)
Music by Phoebe P. Knapp (1839-1908)
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
angels descending bring from above
echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love.
If Fanny Crosby who was blind most of her life, could believe like this, surely WE can!
We hope and pray that this paper will help in that regard.
