Christianity is a life style…. Relationship with God is a lifestyle.. The apostle Paul gave us his definition in Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ, therefore it is no longer I, but Christ, who lives in me: and the life which I now live in the this physical body, I live by the faith of the Son of God" "It is no longer I, but Christ" ...this was not Paul's doctorate diploma of high level Christianity, but his verdict of God's normal for every born again Christian believer. He is simply stating here that for him to be alive as a Christian, it is 'no longer he but Christ that lives out His life in him'. God makes it very clear in the Bible, as His written Word, that He only has one answer to every human need; and that answer is His Son Jesus Christ. "Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life" (John 14:6) In all of Gods dealings with us, He works by taking us out of the way and then substituting Christ in our place. This becomes a very personal experience. For example:- (1) Jesus died in place of me, as a substitute for my death, providing me with a total forgiveness for my sins, and an end to the old sinful nature of self. (2) Jesus lives in place of me, as a substitute for my life, providing me with a new nature and the Holy Spirit of God, in place of all that was there before. The Lord Jesus performs all this in me, so as to provide me with a complete deliverance from sin, Satan and self. This new life that He lives out in us is the Christian life. Only Christ can live the Christ life in us, we can't! The Christian life is not really our life at all, it is Christ's life lived out in us in the person of His Holy Spirit. Contrary to popular belief a Christian is not one who goes to Church regularly, prays and reads the Bible. That is what a Christian may do but it is not what he is. You can go to Church Seven days a week, pray twenty four hours a day, read a thousand Bibles a month and still not be a Christian! The meaning of the word 'Christian' can best be understood by breaking the word up into Christ - ian, which means to be one who is related to Christ by being 'of Christ'. This can also be used to demonstrate that one is 'born out of Christ' as in being one who is 'born again'. The 'ian' part denotes origin of birth or nationality. An Australian, for example, is one who is 'of' Australia or born an Austral-ian. The '-ian' on the end of a word means to be 'from or of '. Therefore a Christian is one who is 'from or of Christ', or 'born out of Christ'. Romans 8:9 declares that those who do not have the 'Spirit of Christ' are none of His. To be of Christ and to be members of the body of Christ as the true Church, we must therefore be 'born again' into the resurrection Life of Jesus Christ (John 3:3-7) Therefore, a born again Christian is simply a forgiven sinner who is regenerated spiritually in Jesus Christ; and who now possesses the life of Christ, including a new clean spirit (heart) and a new nature that does not sin
Jesus told the people who had faith in him, "If you keep on obeying what I have said, you truly are my disciples. --John 8:31
"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." ---Psalm 46:10
New Heart, New life,& Renewing mind ….
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and Renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 Make a new heart in me, My God! Create it out of Your Pureness! (2 Cor. 5:17) Make my heart brand new so that it is totally pure and without anything bad. Dear God, make a new and faithful spirit inside of me. Give me Your Holy Spirit that I may be faithful to you in all things!! (John 3:1-21) Have my heart stick to you no matter what comes my way!!
One of the most valuable things that a person could possibly have is an intimate relationship with God. That same God who is big enough and powerful enough to create the whole universe is also small enough and caring enough to desire a personal relationship with you--a relationship that will last for eternity.
Of course, such an intimate friendship won't happen by chance. Your relationship with…
God is love (1 John 4:8). God doesn't have to pretend to love you; He can't not love you, because He is love.
In fact, the very actions of God exemplify what love is. The apostle John explains that this is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us (1 John 3:16). Only a few verses later, he further defines love:…
God's love for you is unconditional and everlasting. God loves you exactly as you are, and He loves you no matter what you do. God doesn't love you because you are a "good" person; instead, God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). God is abounding in love and faithfulness (Exodus 34:6).…
Prepare for the Kingdom of God is at hand. Put on the full armor of God
