Series 2 - Lesson 3 - Annotation 14
What is meant by believing on Christ unto salvation?
14. Believing on Christ unto salvation is believing so firmly in the spiritual principles, ideas, that make up our Christ nature that they become the motivation of our thinking, feeling, speaking, and acting. The freedom we find in expressing these principles is our salvation.
Wrong attitudes and limiting concepts about man bind us and keep us from experiencing the spiritual mastery we seek. Our faith is not being placed on the life, love, and intelligence constituting our Christ nature, nor on the potential of these ideals and ideas to become actual in experience. Conversely, right attitudes, the conviction that the latent good can become manifest, redeem us from limitations.
"He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (I John 4:4) was an insight of John. The greater "he" is the Christ. This realization will meet any issue that has to be met. This is "believing on Christ unto salvation."
