God Wishes Christians Knew

  • That There is More to the Cross than Forgiveness Forgiveness is great, awesome, complete, crucial, and just the beginning of all that Christ has accomplished for us.
  • That Jesus Christ IS Eternal Life Not only is He Eternal Life but Believers share His Eternal Life. Get a handle on this reality and you might be able to hear the devil’s knees knocking.
  • How Satan Deceives Christians The Word documents that the new man is at war against a power in his body called "sin." The Greek text reveals that this is not our sinful nature. Our old sinful nature was crucified in Christ (Rom. 6:6, et. al.). Thus a Christian is not "a house divided against himself," which "shall not stand." We’re in a bi-partisan conflict –Christ and the Christian against the evil power called "sin" as depicted in Rom. 7:17, 20, 23—which Christ in us can win for us!
  • His Purpose for the Law A sparrow feeding in the prison exercise yard operates under a higher law (aerodynamics) that sets it free from the law which imprisons the inmates (gravity). We are governed by the law of life in Christ (Rom. 8:2), which is superior to the Old Testament Law. Of course, God did not set us free from the Law so we could sin. Only lost folks want to live like that.
  • That They are Sanctified Being born in the USA makes a person an American. This is his national identity. Acting like an American is another thing altogether. This is performance. Christians are sanctified (made holy) at their spiritual birth. This is part of our new identity in Christ. Sanctified performance, on the other hand, is produced by trusting Christ to express His life through us. Many mistakenly confuse the two and spend their lives striving to become what we already are—holy.
  • That We Should Stop Asking Him to Forgive Us How many of your sins were placed on Christ 2000 years ago? All of them. How many had you committed 2000 years ago? None of them. All of your sins were future sins when Jesus paid the penalty for you. If Christ’s death wasn’t enough to forgive future sins, we are all in a heap of trouble! The Bible teaches that we have been forgiven of all sins, past, present, and future. Repeatedly asking for forgiveness is unbelief. What a liberating chapter this is!
  • That They Have All the Faith They Need Christians don’t need more faith; Christians need to better know the Object of their faith—Jesus—more deeply and intimately. As this happens, your trust in Him will increase.
  • That We Are Being Trained on Earth to Reign in Heaven Many Christians are hoodwinked by Satan into believing that salvation is only about going to heaven. Although heaven is guaranteed, our earthly pilgrimage is designed to train us for an active, eternal reign with Christ (Rev. 3:21). There is reign in our forecast! Failing to seriously pursue God’s post-salvation training-for-reigning program is much like passing a university’s entrance exam, but sleeping through the classes that were to prepare you for your future.
  • The Folly of Self-Generated Self-Acceptance Everyone has developed a fleshly self-image, which will become kindling for the great wiener roast in the sky. We can trash our old self-image now or see it burn later, because it will never enter heaven (1 Cor. 3:15).
  • How to Build a Christ-Centered Self-image This explains how to appropriate a Christ-based self-esteem that is set in heavenly concrete from here through all eternity. This will pass the judgment in a breeze because it’s God’s work, not yours.
  • That They Are the Beloved Bride of Jesus Christians are the bride of Christ. Always a bride, never a bridesmaid is Christ’s motto for you. Are you living in this truth and working on your wedding trousseau (Rev. 19:7-9)?
