Power of 8: Faith, Hope and Love

If you’re looking for victory in life, it comes through being empowered by the very Spirit of God. This Spirit led life gives us full knowledge of God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son. The life we live now is lived by faith, anchored by hope and expressed by love. When we come to Christ we are identified with Him in His death, burial and resurrection and raised to walk in the newness of life. Walking by faith is trust, rely and depend on Jesus in all things.

Grace Justifies You Freely

We can’t earn salvation. It’s not a works based program. We see this in Romans 4 where Paul spells it out that the righteous will live by faith. And to that faith in imparted righteousness. Do you want to be right with God? Do you want to know that all is right between you and your creator? Christ dealt with your sins and took them away, giving you the very righteousness of Christ. Grace justifies you freely because of the work of Jesus Christ
* I don’t recall a specific moment of salvation and I struggle with doubt concerning my salvation. What can I do?

His Grace is Sufficient

How do we get through the tough times in life? It gets back to this word “grace”. In 2 Corinthians Paul wrote, “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” In our weakness, God’s strength is made perfect.
* I’ve grown so much listening to Christian radio. But I’m struggling with running my own business – just one break down away from being broke. What can I do? * How do I communicate Jesus to my two grandsons?
* What is the Christian’s purpose today?

By God’s Grace

Paul writes about the Gospel that saves in 1 Corinthians 15 “Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, … ” He declares the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Paul’s encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus changed his identity and totally transformed him by the grace of God. “But by the grace of God I am what I am ” v. 10 * What are your thoughts on the chosen or the elect?

Words of Grace

Let these words of grace work there way into your heart. “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:3-5 NLT I encourage you to read the first chapter today. * Can a person be forgiven and yet not saved?
* I became truly saved in 2010, but I have always struggled with abstaining from alcohol. I am starting to doubt my faith. Why won’t the Lord deliver me from this struggle?
* When witnessing, how do you overcome the “I’m a good person'” defense? Either believing they don’t need God or how can a good God send a good person to hell?

Power of 8: Law and Grace, part 2

Far from being a dull theological tenant, the way of grace is the most exciting way to live. As children of God, we’re no longer under the law. We live under the grace of God. No one is righteous under the law. Righteousness is a free gift of the grace of God. How then should we live? Led by the Spirit. The good news is God has sent his Spirit to take up residence in us. The Spirit renews our minds and empowers us to live as children of God. “For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God.” Galatians 2:19

Jesus Our Savior

If this Gospel is going to make sense to us we really need to understand why we need a savior. So many look to Jesus as an example. But we don’t need and example – we need a savior. The angels announced his birth, “Today I bring you good news — a savior is born in Bethlehem.” Paul gives the most vivid depiction of our condition in Ephesians 2:1 — “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked …”. We “were by nature children of wrath”.
* If Paul holds the key and he wrote the book of Hebrews, then what are the keys that Jesus Christ holds? Are they the same keys? * Anthony asks about addiction and salvation.
* Sometimes when I go on my knees and pray, I feel empty. It seems like God is not hearing my prayers.
* What is the difference between walking in THE truth and walking in truth in 3 John 3, 4?
