THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 1

TEXT: He. 3:12; Re. 21:8; Acts 2: 37-38; Acts 5:29-33

SALVATION OF THE SOUL PART 23– THE MEANS IS THE CROSS.

Text: Mt. 16:24-26; Mk.8: 34-37: Lk.9: 23-25; Phil. 2:5-9; Mt. 26: 36- 44

Our personal cross is distinct from our burden. Usually, our burdens leave no room for choices, but every individual has the choice to deny or take up own cross. Our personal cross is a place of decision where we choose either to obey God’s will or assert our own will.

SALVATION OF THE SOUL PART 1

Text: 1Thes. 5:23; Ep. 2:8-9; Tit.3: 4

A man is a living soul that has a spirit and lives in a body. God has put in place provisions for all that constitutes man i.e. the spirit, the soul and the body; to be saved.

At rebirth, the spirit is quickened, regenerated- saved by grace through faith. The spirit of man must be regenerated for his soul to be saved because the whole essence of Christianity is the salvation of the soul. The body will be redeemed at the end of time purely by the act of God.

Text: Jas. 1:2-4; 12; Ps. 119:65-71; 2Cor. 4:17-18; He. 11:23; 1Ti. 6:6-11

We are able to endure such afflictions by focusing on eternal things through the eye of faith as well.

GIVE CAREFUL THOUGHTS TO YOUR WAYS

Texts: Hag.1: 5-6; La.3:40; Ps. 119:59-60; Is. 64:7; Je. 48:11; Zep.1:1

It is necessary, from time to time to stop and consider our ways so that we are not merely fully but wrongfully committed to our individual pursuit while leaving out the purpose of God for our lives.

Such regular appraisals will afford us the opportunity to make timely changes where necessary by aligning our lives with the scriptures.

Additionally, Christ is also the shadow of a great rock for believers in a weary land.

Every committed believer must regard Jesus Christ as the hiding place from the winds and shelter from the storms. A man who puts his trust in the Lord must not fall for the temptation to seek for help outside of Christ, but he must continue to trust in the Lord no matter the hardship.

WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST PART 3

Text: He. 5:8

All who belong to Christ must learn obedience to God, i.e. the act of submitting to the will and commands of God just as Christ did. The learning process involves enduring sufferings brought about by the resolve to obey God. Jesus Christ demonstrated this by the display of rare humility at the face of untoward maltreatment he suffered in the hands of men created by him because he was totally committed to fulfillment of the will of His Father.

Those who are in Christ enjoy the encouragement in Christ, comfort of love, fellowship of the Spirit, tenderness and compassion of God and are therefore in a position to share same with others. These are Christians who have the mine of Christ and therefore have had their incurably sick carnal mind renewed and continue to engage the renewal process.

All who are in Christ can be of one mind if they live in obedience to the word of God. Being of one mind fosters unity in the body of Christ and this is a very important because life flows from blessings and blessings flow from unity.

To be in Christ is to be united with Christ as one; a state that is sustained by encouragement in Christ, comfort of love, fellowship of the Spirit, tenderness and compassion enjoyed.

Text: 1Jn. 2:3-6; Jn.3:3-5; Acts 19:1-6; 2:38

To be saved is to be born from above. To enter the kingdom of God, there is the need to be baptized of water and of the Spirit. Like Jesus, every believer must fulfill all righteousness. Only those who enter into the kingdom of God are empowered to overcome sin, to submit to the will of God and succeed in all things that pertain to Christian life. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a MUST for every believer.
