We have learned that God is light and there is no darkness in him at all. I John 1:4-7
What is more difficult, to walk on water or to walk in the light? Matthew 14:22-33
The standard test for God if he can trust people – is to find out if they can walk in obedience. The first test was given to Adam and Eve. They failed. Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7
The Devil has put a doubt in the mind of man, “CAN GOD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER BE TRUSTED?” Here is what the Bible tells us! Hebrews 6:13-20
HEBREWS CHAPTER 6
Verses 4-6: If a person could lose his salvation, it is impossible to give it back to him. This is why the believer in Christ who takes the mark of the Beast, will lose his salvation and there is no repentance left (Revelation 14:9-11). Do not confuse this with Hebrews 10:26-31.
If salvation depends upon the performance of man, then salvation is not a free gift, but a combination of the work of God and the work of man. The apostle Peter preached salvation by faith and repentance (Acts 2:14-42). This was repeated in another sermon by Peter (Acts 3:1-26). The apostle Paul had the same message (Romans 3: 20-31; 4:1-8, Ephesians 2:1-10).
Verses 7-8: Compare this with Matthew 7:13-23
Verses 9-10: God will not forget us.
Verses 11-12: Do not be slothful.
Verses 13-20: God is faithful, solid, and will never change. We can trust him through eternity.
