If you have a question you would like Dave and Tom to address in a future program, that to one would let you know where to send it at the end of this broadcast your listening to search the scriptures daily of radio ministry of the Brian call.
No, our next segment understanding the scripture is we continue our exploration of the doctrine of salvation, with more about what it means to have a more abundant life here again with Dave hut is Taman. In this part of our program, we've been talking about the Gospel, and they will never run out of things to say about it. It's such a wonderful profoundly wonderful subject but we've been dealing with some aspects of the Gospel with regard to believing and how on safe and so on the today, I'd like to talk about the benefits to a hot salvation Jesus said, in John 10-10. I am come. That they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly, but the word I wanna key in on today is life... Life in Christ, Colossians 34, when Christ who is our life shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory what Christ is our life and it's an abundant life, what does that mean life in Christ?
So the scripture says that we are in dead interest passes. And since every year, an being the... Now how would you explain that in relation to our father Adam, our parents and... And God created the in the image of God, Jesus Chapter One created he, him, male and female, created them came to you how he got formed man on the dust of the ground, breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, man, became a living soul. So life comes from God. It's not something that's the atheist or the evolutions we try to say, "Right is spontaneously from matter when it becomes the molecules become complex enough they can't even begin to explain that.
So, a human life comes from God and I believe with all the life comes from God, but man being made in the image of God as a form of life kind. I don't know even know the words to express it because we can't even explain what life is, but the life, the animated you could say Anima Eve was God Himself, His Holy Spirit living within their spirit, I believe the Bible teaches man, is body, so in spirit, I like your way. And Mary put it many years ago, the body is the seat of sense consciousness, the soul is the center of self-consciousness and the spirit is the center of God consciousness. In other words, it was in the spirit that God the spirit of God dwell, and is through the spirit that man, the noise gone.
To know God and experience his life. Now, I obviously... Then when Anne Reid they just obeyed God, and they were cast out of the card and they lost that fellowship with God the spirit of God left the spirit of man, and there was a separation between God and man, and this is why Paul, in "skuas Cape 5, says that we have been given the ministry of reconciliation that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. This is through the gospel, and we find that reconciliation first of all, is in Jesus Christ, who is God who through the version betama, but he didn't cease to be God, he never ceased to be man, he's the one on my God, He so in Jesus Christ, God and man have been brought together in a way that is even superior to what it was with Adam, although Jesus is called the second man in the last Adam.
Now, when Christ comes to live in us as we call, we're born in the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God with the Spirit of God is the spirit of Christ, because Jesus is God. So now when the Spirit of Christ comes to live within us, we have a new life and it's not even a restoration of what was lost in Animas something even better because anime they experienced God walking in the cool evening coming to them, they do in the garden, no, but the spirit of God left them, and they were cast out of the garden but we are told that He... That in-dwells us, He will never leave us North for SaaS.
There was a new indwelling of the Spirit in fact Jesus in John 7, on that last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus didn't cried, saying, "If any man thirst, and coming to me and drink, and out of his in as men with flow Rios and living water and then John, who's writing it and his Gospel gives this commentary says this, spake of the spirit, which they that believed on Him should receive for the Holy Spirit was not yet given because Chris and I have been glorified now, although the Holy Spirit came upon and I presume even... Could it well the saints in the Old Testament or a day in Ahram.
But yeah, David prayed and Sam 51 taking up by Holy Spirit, from me, but now we have a new presence of God on this earth Holy Spirit within the believer since the Petco never to leave us or forsake us, and so Christ has become our very life now, this is a life that must be lived by faith, right? I'm still in this whole body of sin, and there is a conflict descriptor says, between the flesh and the Spirit not between the flesh and my spent a... But between the flesh and the Spirit of God dwelling within... And now, my spirit has been brought to life by faith in Christ. Now, I am to walk in faith. So, Colossians Chapter 2 says, As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord.
So I walk in to him, and I receive them. I received Him as a helpless, hopeless, wretched center worthy of hell who couldn't save himself. Now, the Christ is living in me now, I have to walk in that way, too. I'm still a rigid was sinner, but I've been saved by God's grace.
And you have an active vehicle of communication with him. You have a spirit now that has been born again.
Well, he's living in my spirit now He's indwelling, me, but I still have the power of choice, I still have his body Paul says, wretched man that I am, this is women even Who will deliver me from this body of death I thank God through Jesus Christ. And ultimately, we have deliverance at the resurrection when we have new bodies of glory like his... But in the meantime, I walk by faith not by side, so that really the Christian life is not a struggle for me somehow, in my own strength to overcome temptations mites and somehow live sanctified Selden sober and sad Christian life. But it's allowing Christ to line E, So the secretly Christian life is the Latins 220, "I am crucified with Christ.
There is a...
"I live yet not I but Christ lives in me, and the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.
Right, so this is a Christian life now, and it's something new and it's wonderful and I think I can be, I can remember when I was saying, when I open my heart to Christ, over 60 years ago now, there was a transformation, there was something new with the... And to be led of the Spirit, of God, and to see God guide our lives and so many wonderful ways. For some people, it's very dramatic, but for others it's just a solid development. I'm thinking about some of what we started with John 10-10, Jesus said he came. That we might have a more abundant life, and... No, no, that we might have life.
I don't, the more Alaimo of... A more lately, right? But that life... I'm thinking about Galatians 522. but the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, some anti-right? These are things we were talking earlier about psychology at psychotherapy. Go there to say It's not the fruit of therapy, the fruit of the spirit and it is thrilling time and this is the abundant life that Christ offers, for us, not in Heaven some day but right here and now, therefore, Paul can write "Rejoice in the Lord and in again, I say rejoice, you say, "Rejoice in the Lord unless you happen to be depressed unless you can't do it.
He says In everything give thanks, and say, "unless you just don't feel like you can do it, you're in or such a burden. So there is a victory in Christ thanks be to God who always gives us the victory and price always causes us to try them, so that in prison they've been beaten with a cane in this fall in sales a lying on their backs in the UK, their bloody backs in this prison cell, with the feet in the stocks, and they are singing praises to God.
Gonna tell him. Is that a... Well, that's not a positive mental attitude. No, I lonely of Christ. Have an absolutely... And this is for every one of us. They didn't need to go to a psychotherapist to somehow build up to self-esteem, and help them to feel good in the Crusades. They were rejoicing. In fact, the early apostles remember that they were beaten, they were in prison, then they let them out they beat them, and they said Don't preach in this name anymore they rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer for Christ. So there is a joy. I remember Richard were brought, who I knew very well, many years ago, I was tortured for his faith, solitary confinement for many years and so forth. 14 years, totally... And he has told me privately, that there were times he'd been tortured with red hot irons bring I've seen the holes in his body and burned by these within ANDS, and yet there were times when the presence of price was so real in his cell when he is in horrible pain, that he danced for joy. So, this I would say is the abundant life right, that is available to us in Christ. Not my artwork or our efforts, but through faith in Him right, not just the Apostle Paul not just silence not just Richard warrior everyone who is in constant David, God will resume their discussion on God's salvation again next week this is search the scriptures daily a radio ministry?
