Time of Christ is at Hand

Bible Verse Romans 13:11-12

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

Commentary:

As Paul nears the end of his letter to the Romans he is now beginning a section which deals with the practical application of Christian teaching in the daily life of the believer. And as he reaches this section of scripture he is reminding his readers that they have reached a new period in their lives. This new period is brought about because their spiritual condition has changed and this is true for us as well. Our relationship toward God has changed because of Jesus who reconciles us to God the Father. We were once in darkness and sin, separated from God.

However because of grace and the saving work of Jesus at the cross we have now entered the light. Through faith we enter into the kingdom of God as children and joint-heirs with Christ. And as such the time for action is now. It's no longer appropriate to ignore the things of God. Instead we are to shake off the spiritual darkness and apathy. And through faith we are to step out and let the Holy Spirit do a work in our lives. Our salvation confirms that the period of night characterized by spiritual depravity is gone and the daytime of Jesus' rule in our lives is at hand. And knowing His imminent return is near we are to be about the Father's business and not wondering around on the outskirts of the darkness of this world.

Only Jesus Can Cleanse Us from Sin

Psalm 51:1-4

Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight-That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge.

We Have Joy and a Generous Life Through Christ

Psalm 51:11-13

Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.

Salvation Through Christ Alone, Who is God

Psalm 51:14-17

O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise. For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart-These, O God, You will not despise.

Blessed Are Those Who Have Their Faith in Christ

Matthew 5:2-11

Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

We Are the Light of Christ

Matthew 5:14-16

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Jesus, the Image of the Invisible God

Colossians 1:15-17

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

Christ Image of the Living God

Hebrews 1:1-4,9

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they... To the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.

Our Dwelling Place is With Jesus - (Psalm 91:9-11)

Psalm 91:9-11

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

Submit to God

James 4:7-8

Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

We Were Chosen Before the Foundation of the World

Ephesians 1:3-6

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.

Follow Jesus With Your Whole Heart

Psalm 119:10-12

With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You Blessed are You, O Lord Teach me Your statutes
