Promises of Christ


#1

Some common prayers ask ‘that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.’ Is this a reference to some specific list of promises? Is it simply an expression of a general hope of salvation? Or, maybe it means something else?

Just curious to know what people are thinking when they say those words.

I have always thought it referred to the hope of eternal life available to us through Christ’s death and resurrection.


#3

The promises of Jesus (regarding salvation) are found by reading through the gospels. The prayer refers to these promises implicit or obvious in His words and teachings. God bless you.Trishie :slight_smile:
