~ Selected 2:10 References From Scripture ~
A Mini-Bible Course: Concerning Jesus Christ based upon Chapter 2, verse 10 references.
Jesus Christ is the Author of our Salvation ~ “For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the Author of their salvation through sufferings” (Hebrews 2:10-11). If you were killed tomorrow, are you sure, beyond a shadow of doubt, of your salvation?
Jesus Christ is the One who Builds Character in Us ~ “For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10). Are you allowing the Spirit of God to actively build your character?
Jesus Christ is the Source of Joy ~ “Then the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people’” (Luke 2:10). Do you have the inner joy that only a relationship with Jesus Christ can provide?
Jesus Christ is the One who Fulfills our Lives ~ “And you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority” (Colossians 2:10-11). Is your life full? Do you have Abundant Life Now?
Jesus Christ has a Name Above Every Other Name ~ “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth” (Philippians 2:10). Have you bowed to the Creator? Or will you be forced to bow when it is too late to accept His free gift of salvation? Do you have a personal relationship with the One who has the name which is above all names?
Jesus Christ is the One who will Crown Us ~ “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Revelation 2:10). Is there a crown waiting for you in heaven? Or is there a terrible day of judgment for your sins awaiting you in the future?
