Christian Life The Inner Drive For God’s Truth And Light

The Believing Sinner’s Praise And Worship

Questions And Answers

1. Jesus Christ will be and must be above all things and all people (John.1:1; 3:16; 4:42).

2. The world, the flesh, and the devil must be put away as enemies of God (Matthew 13:1-9; Luke 14:26).

A. The world: What we see, and what people all around us follow.

B. The flesh: The desires of our natural ways, and our will to fulfill them.

C. The devil: He gives our Adamic nature deceptive thoughts and purposes of direction, which will lead us away from God’s will. The devil’s ways, if followed, will take us far from Jesus Christ.

God’s Purpose

1. God’s purpose is to make us into the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29).

2. When we believe every word of God in following Jesus Christ, the Spirit of God will transform us into the praise of His grace (Ephesians 1:5-6), and the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29).

3. When we hear and follow the voice of Jesus Christ (the Holy Spirit, through our faith in the Scriptures), our mind, heart and spirit will be transformed into a life led of God (Romans 12:1-2).

4. This transformation will make a person of faith in God into a new creation of God’s making (2 Corinthians 5:17).

5. This new life will be opposed by the devil, our own will and fleshly desires. Spiritual warfare will take place against us. The devil will use our friends, people, our flesh, our mind, circumstances, family, religious people, deceptions, twisted Scripture, and spiritual powers (demonic) to get us to change our faith in Jesus Christ and stop us from following His word (Ephesians 6:10-17).

6. “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). Through faith in this pathway and the working of the Holy Spirit within a Christian, he will have desire to worship and praise Jesus Christ and the Father in joy and thankfulness.

Questions & Answers

1. According to God’s word, who is a Christian?

“But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9). The clear meaning of this Biblical verse is, only those whom Jesus Christ dwells (lives) in are born of God (is a Christian) (John 1:12-13).

2. How does a person become a Christian according to God’s word?

Believing and receiving into one’s heart the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is: “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3). (“... the Lord laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6). “And that He was buried (He was in the grave for 3 days), and that He rose again the third day (from among the dead) according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4).

3. If a person receives the gospel of Jesus Christ, does that person receive the Spirit of Jesus Christ at the same time?

The Spirit of Jesus Christ (the Holy Spirit) is received through faith in Jesus according to the Scriptures. “That the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:14).

“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:14- 16).

4. Does a person who believes and receives the gospel of Jesus Christ actually become a son of God?

“And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Galatians 4:6-7).

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14).
