Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P02 (03-15-22)
In Search of an Identity
The issue of identity is inescapable and central to our lives. “Who am I?” we all ask. “Where did I come from? Where am I going?” Every person wrestles with these questions, and the answers we adopt determine the direction of our lives.
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to base their beliefs and build their lives. The word of God declares that Jesus Christ is that foundation of truth. With that in mind, let’s now take A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ.
People sometimes who have problems with drunkenness and they are then told you’re an alcoholic. And that identity, they will desperately hang on to that identity. In other words. Don’t tell me, I’m not, because number one that’s my rationale. That’s my excuse for drinking too much. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P35 (02-16-22)
Our Eternal Inheritance
We’re getting ready to begin now at chapter number 11 called an eternal inheritance and this lesson should answer a number of questions that people have in regard to this thing of our inheritance. And Christ, is it eternal or is that temporal? Some people call that eternal security. Some people call it once saved always saved. I just call it truth and the issue is is it true that when Christ did it that he did it, or was it just a partial death on the cross? A partial resurrection? And is it some of him and some of me or is it all of him and none of me? Or is it all of me and none of him? And to those questions, we have to ask ourselves where are we in our belief system? So before we pick up, I want to spend just a moment of talking about at the beginning of the book of Romans and chapter three picking up there. Beginning in verse 19. Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
The law written on stone, shows you your sinfulness. And that’s what the Bible says, that the law was given to show us to be perfectly sinful though, so that we would turn to Christ for our redemption. My friends, the law had a purpose, the law still has a purpose, but it says, it’s not to the saved. It’s to the lost and the purpose of the law to the lost, is to show us to be perfectly sinful so that we see and turn to him for his provision.
Now if that ministry that brought death that he’s talking to the wages of sin is death. Here’s the law. Violate it and a goner. If that ministry that brought death, which was engraved on letters of stone came with glory and it did so much Glory that the Israelites couldn’t even look steadily at the face of Moses because of its Glory fading though, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P708 (02-11-22)
Be above reproach so the gospel can go out. Guard the truth and protect those entrusted to your care. Grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So many callers call in because they want to grow and have a desire for others to come to know the Lord and to grow. They want to encourage those whom the Lord has used, such as Bob George, for they themselves were richly blessed by what he shared from the scriptures. It is not by what man has said, but for pointing them to the word of God, so they can test and see what is said is true. They find out what is shared, checking it out from the word of God for themselves, and the Spirit of God within them makes the truth known to them, solidifying that truth in their heart. This is evidenced by the love toward one another, with true freedom in Christ. They are no longer bound up by the law but experience true freedom with a single-minded focus on Christ, who is your life, at work within you. The book of Colossians is … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P32 (02-09-22)
Standing in Truth
There is a basic need in the heart of every man to know God, to experience his forgiveness, to be freed from the bondage of guilt. And to know that he has been totally accepted by God. Only God can meet this need and he does so through his son Jesus Christ. Through his death on the cross, Jesus Christ, demonstrated the love of God for you and me and ushered in a brand new covenant, whereby we can experience forgiveness and have new life. It is because of this that we take a closer look at The Reality of The Resurrection
When we receive God’s abundant provision of Grace and the gift of righteousness, we’re into a situation now where we’re standing on truth. We talked about that before the break that it’s something to stand on. That we are into a situation where God called us to stand on something, that is secure. And if we’re going to stand on something, then we’re going to have to stand on the security that it’s all Jesus, and none of us. Because if … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
