Taking Hold of Eternal Life in Christ

ByGeorge GiffordC. Matthew McMahon

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
How is a person sure to be saved? How can they build up assurance of salvation and reject a profane life? What can they do to overcome sin and please King Jesus? These sermons all have a common thread running through them: to show you how to lay hold of salvation in Jesus Christ. Gifford is very precise in laying out what each text means, as well as giving a careful and thorough explanation taking ample time to bring to light practical perspectives on his texts. In this, he will bring these topics home to your soul, and you will be a better Christian for reading him. In his first sermon on taking hold of eternal life, Gifford explains, “Charge them that are rich in this world … that they may lay hold on eternal life,” (1 Tim. 6:17-19). He will show you how to lay up the good foundation you need in order to stand secure in Christ at the judgement to come. In his second sermon on the three that bear record in heaven, he explains, quite thoroughly, 1 John 5:7-13. There are three that bear record in heaven, and three that bear witness in earth. And between these “six” there is Scriptural and covenantal agreement concerning the manner of salvation, the assurance that one can have of it. Disciples of Christ, “know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” In his third sermon on rejecting the blessing of God, he explains Hebrews 12:16-17, “Let there be any fornicator, or profane person as Esau...” He is thorough on the Genesis narrative to show why Esau was profane, and how people today may also be profane following Esau’s example. His insightful comments in this sermon are exceedingly valuable and ought to be read with great soul-care. His last sermon is on continuing in sin once a disciple is converted. Romans 6:1-14, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid!” Can disciples sin? Can they sin “big” and still be saved? He takes great pains, and shows a careful step by step explanation on what Paul is teaching throughout the sixth chapter of Romans; a chapter, today, often misunderstood, and overlooked. Gifford is very easy to read, yet, exegetically sound and practically deep. May the Lord bless you as you take time to study along with Gifford on how to lay hold of Jesus Christ for eternal life.
