Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. Romans 9:32
How do we become saved? Its by faith alone and not by our works! Many people, even today, still don’t understand this. You cant work your way into Heaven, you cant earn your own salvation. Its only by the works of Jesus Christ that we are saved! By Faith Alone in Jesus Christ, that’s what saves us, not the works of the law
Jesus said “We will be known by the fruit we produce” this fruit it doesn’t save us, it’s the evidence of our transformation. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. Works can’t bring you salvation, however the salvation of Jesus produces works in you
As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 9:33
Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone and whoever puts their faith in him will be saved. Christ needs to be your foundation for everything, without him your life is unstable. Without a foundation to build upon, your house of cards will eventually crumble
How do you become saved? Faith alone in Jesus Christ! It is Finished at the cross, become Born Again by the cleaning of his blood, and the power of the Holy Spirit Amen!
