Running the eternal race in holiness (right standing with God) – Church of Christ

We are set on the path of eternal life, running the christian race. God demands utmost holiness in workings with our faith to give us a right standing in Christ Jesus. Striving against all sins that we might be the true children of the Living God even as he prunes us with his word, giving us legitimate sonship in him. He is a God full of mercy and grace to those who find him, he is a God of justice and consuming fire to those who reject him.  

Fear not…God has commanded

Isaiah 43:1-2 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
