Our faith should show up in all we do, so that people may recognize Christ in all of it- Philemon 1:4-6.
Your identity in Christ bestows some responsibility on you because you have put off the old man.
Jude 1:3 -4/ ephy 2:8-10
As believers, we were not saved by works, we were saved to work. The work is a result. We are his workmanship created in Christ to do good works
By faith, we were crucified with Christ, buried with him, raised together with him.
By raising Jesus from the dead, God has done great in my life. That is revelation.
Christ took all our judgments, punishments e.t.c his sacrifice has changed our weaknesses.
By the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, we have become his workmanship. The same message we believe for our salvation is the same message we believe for our sanctification.
And by the Holy Spirit, we become beneficiaries of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. So the resurrection had an impact on our sanctification. Because he was raised, you walk in the newness of life.
The crucifixion ended that irresistible tendency for sin, now we have to believe by faith.
We can refuse to sin now because there is grace at work in us.
Three keys to ACT out our nature
1. Learn to feed your spirit_ Gal 5:17: We have to create an environment that will aid us in God’s will.
2. Gal 6:1_ prov 27:17, Romans 1:11- ASSOCIATION
When you build a system of zero accountability, trouble is coming.
3. Meditate: If we are still dealing with habits or if we are to overcome them, we need to meditate on the word of God.
