Ministry Training School Student

Cliffdale Christian Center "A Church of Love"

Greetings. This site is for my Desktop Publishing class. I just wanted to showcase some of my written assignments from my MTS class.

I am currently enrolled in the first level of Ministry Training School at Cliffdale Christian Center . I find the class to be mentally and spiritually fulfilling, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in growing spiritually and strengthening their relationship with God.

Justification by Grace through Faith

“Justification by grace through faith”, simply states that a Christian is pronounced innocent of sins and seen as the righteousness of God through His divine act of mercy by working in our hearts to be revealed in his or her life. But it is a Christian’s faith, a trust and belief in and on God that moves Him to justify His children (Romans 3: 21-26).

Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12: 1-3)

The scripture above is a promise, a covenant made unto Abraham by God; that is also a promise to all Christians according to the Word of God (Galatians 3:8).  A Christian becomes justified when he or she accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, ‘that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus’ (Romans 3:26). For accepting Jesus Christ into one’s heart demonstrates a Christian’s faith in the promise of God, by which one is justified through God’s grace.

Abraham believed in the Lord and it was accounted to him as righteousness (Genesis 15:6). Abraham’s faith is noted in scripture more than once to show that a person does not able to take hold of God’s promise by his own works but solely by the hand of God (Romans 4:1-4).

“Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be” (Romans 4:16)
