We continue to learn what it means to live under the Lordship of Christ and how we should respond to His purpose. In this continuation from the previous message, Bro. Jeff encourages us in the importance of prayer.
More than ever, we need the empowering of the Holy Spirit to help us carry out God’s plan of worship and witness. Bro. Jeff shares two things important to being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
“If you aren’t willing to suffer, you won’t follow Jesus.” Christ suffered on the cross for you and I; God’s plan for us is also to take up a cross, to endure for the gospel’s sake. Straight from God’s Word, Bro. Jeff paints a picture of what it looks like to follow Jesus.
“What the world needs in latter times is a real disciple of Jesus, and the enemy is battling for your mind.” Bro. Jeff continues discussing Paul’s list of important characteristics of real disciples. God may have you in mind to be a dedicated follower.
Are you mad? Or sad? Or glad? Have you cleaved unto the Lord? Believers are encouraged in the areas of leadership and commitment by Bro. Jeff as he looks at the examples of Barnabas and Saul of Tarsus.
Continuing with the example of Saul of Tarsus, Bro. Jeff further explains what the Bible reveals about real salvation. What’s the difference between a religious person and a born-again believer? Learn more here.
