*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘contend earnestly’ for the [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.

“Are You ‘WATERING?’ – 101” …Blog
Perhaps You have taken the ‘time & effort’ to STUDY… these Bible Blogs and this discussion. ONE MORE TIME… “Salvation is the Indwelling Holy Spirit”…! That is the Essence of being “Born Again”… Born from Above… [Promised by Christ in John 7:38-39]… by the Holy Spirit of God! He supplies ALL… “His Love, Mercy & Grace”… so that we might be His Workmanship in Christ Jesus! This was all Planned, before the foundation of the World!
*** (Revelation 13:8) And all dwelling on the earth will worship it, those whose names have Not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain, from the foundation of the world.
*** (Ephesians 1:13-14) in Whom also you, Hearing the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation, in Whom also believing, [Acts 15:8-9] you were Sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise,

*** (Ephesians 2:10) For we are His masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared long ago to be our way of life.
Old Testament Covenant Israel… had the Laws, Ordinances, Precepts, Statutes and Levitical Sacrifices, Daily! In addition to the Feast Days, prescribed by the Law! The New Testament Covenant of Grace: through the Finished Work of Redemption by Christ Jesus… Fulfilled all these Requirements! No, that does Not mean… “That we can live Lawlessly”…! Here is where MUCH of the Confusion comes from. When ONE does not Fully Understand the COMPLETED LEVITICAL SACRIFICES… then they are always TRYING to Keep the Law! The True LOVE of GOD… shed abroad in our Hearts… drives us to the “Responsibility of Grace” within the Framework of His Love…!
*** (Matthew 5:28) But I [Jesus] say to you, anyone who stares at a woman with lust for her has “Already” committed adultery with her in his heart.
*** (2Peter 2:14) With eyes full of adultery, they cannot get enough of sin. They seduce unsteady souls and have had their hearts expertly trained in greed. They are doomed to a curse.
*** (Jeremiah 5:8) They were like lusty, well-fed stallions in the morning; every one neighing after his neighbor's wife.

*** (Romans 13:8-9-10) Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves another has fulfilled the Law.
(Rom 13:9) For: "Do not commit adultery; do not murder; do not steal; do not bear false witness; do not lust;" and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this word, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
(Rom 13:10) Love works “No Ill” to its neighbor, therefore love is the fulfilling of the Law.
*** (1John 2:5-6) But whoever keeps His Word, truly in this one the love of God is perfected. By this we know that we are in Him. [Romans 8:15-16-17]
(1Jn 2:6) He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk even as He walked.
*** (1John 4:9-to-19) In this the love of God was revealed in us, because God sent His only begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him.

(1Jn 4:11) Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
(1Jn 4:12) No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.

(1Jn 4:19) We love Him because He first loved us.
*** (Romans 5:1-to-5) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. [John 14:27 & Isaiah 32:17]
(Rom 5:2) Through Him we also have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice on the hope of the glory of God. [Hebrews 4:16]
(Rom 5:3) And not only this, but we glory in Afflictions also, knowing that Afflictions work out Patience,
(Rom 5:4) and Patience works out Experience, and Experience works out Hope.
(Rom 5:5) And Hope does Not make us ashamed, Because the Love [Agape] of God has been poured out in our Hearts THROUGH: the Holy Spirit given to us.
What or should I say… WHO… ties all these TRUTHS of Scripture Together in our Hearts…? Dare I say, the Indwelling Holy Spirit of GOD…? Absolutely YES…! Just as the Scripture SAYS…!
“The Holy Spirit is SALVATION”… and HE it is that lives in US… that “God Life”… through our Yielded Selves in the Fullness of His Holy Spirit! “Christ In You, the Hope of Glory!” [Colossians 1:27 & 2Corinthains 3:5] That is WHY: it is so very Important TO: “Know, Read, Study & Obey”… His Holy Word: “DAILY [2Corinthains 4:16 & John 15:1-2-3]! Pray without Ceasing [1Thessalonians 5:15] “Continually” that WE allow His Holy Spirit… to Lead US… into all His Holy Truth! What is the Simple Solution…? It is Written…
*** (Luke 10:25-to-28) Just then an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. He asked, "Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
(Luke 10:26) Jesus answered him, "What is written in the law? What do you read there?"
(Luke 10:27) He answered, "You must love the Lord your God with all your HEART, with all your SOUL, with all your STRENGTH, and with all your MIND. [2Corinthains 10:3-to-6] And you must love your neighbor as yourself."
(Luke 10:28) Jesus told him, "You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live."
How can You do “ANY” of this… Without the… “INDWELLING HOLY SPIRIIT”…?
Answer: “You Cannot”…!
Conclusion: “The Indwelling Holy Spirit”… is Salvation!
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
