Challenge 11: Matthew 5:41-47 Essay Report.

What does Matthew 5:41-47 mean to a believer?

VS 41 – As Christians we should be willing to go the second mile and put in the extra effort. Back in “Bible days,” a roman could beckon a Jewish man to carry his luggage for a mile. However, Christ taught that the Jewish man should carry the luggage for an extra mile! What a great testimony to the Romans that the Jews allowed themselves to serve others with their time and abilities.

VS 42 – We should be willing to help others who are in need – not just by sharing our possessions with them, but also by giving them our time when they need help. We should also be willing to give and help others without expecting to get something back from them in return.

Challenge 5: Matthew 5:1-12 Essay Report.

What does Matthew 5:1-12 mean to a believer?

This portion of Scripture has to be one of my absolute favorites among my many favorite passages.

Jesus was always teaching people – regardless of whether He opened His mouth to speak or simply lived His life in and out of every day. The truths taught in this passage of Scripture could have been learned simply by watching the life of the Savior without Him every teaching the Beatitudes from the mountain-top.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.” We as mere human beings are nothing in and of ourselves, but in Christ we have everything we could ever want or need. We may not have much as far as riches go here on earth, but one day we will take up residence in Heaven.

The OSAS Doctrine: can I lose my salvation?

Can someone who has accepted Christ as their personal Savior lose their salvation?

That question can easily be answered by asking another question…

Is God a liar?

If you answered yes to either of those questions then you have very little knowledge of the Scriptures.
