The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. (Psalm 18:2,3).
Christ is our eternal salvation when we obey Him which is the whole point of learning we cannot by ourselves claim the victory over our life without Christ being the center of it. It is by the tender mercies shown through our Saviour that we gain peace and understanding He alone can give us! “Shew us thy mercy, O Lord and grant us thy salvation. I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not return again to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven”.(Psalm 85:7-11).
It is only when our conscious convicts us that we are not living a life that is pleasing to God that it sorrows us to then do what is right. God is close to all those of a broken heart and contrite spirit and in His mercy is able to heal us. (2 Corinthians 7:10,11) For Godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a Godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
God the Father has sent His own Son among us in the flesh who cried and prayed as we do, and it was through obedience learned He was able to purchase the true salvation we have offered to us today! (Hebrews 5:7-9) Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:8-10).
