THE FAITH: Truth, Freedom and Hand Me Downs
Are we fuzzy about what we believe? What Truth do we ascribe to?
“Full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
“I am the way, the TRUTH and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
We don’t make up Christian Truth.
Truth has been revealed…..Colossians 1:26
Truth has been handed down….1 Tim 6:20, 2 Tim 1:12-14
What are the objectives of the Christian faith and Cobblestone Church?
- To be conformed to the person of Christ, to take on the mind of Christ.
Philippians 2:5-8/1 Cor 2:16
- To discover freedom. John 8:31-32
Do you have the guts to be a Christian?
Freedom is not the same as lawlessness. Freedom has two components: freedom from constraints so you can be free for….. We are set free for love.
Are you a Cafeteria Christian?
- To pass on Truth. 1 John 1:1- 4
- To experience abundant life. John 10:10
Do we follow the teachings that have been given us that lead to abundant life?
Example, the Lord tells us how important it is to confess our sins, but how often do we do that?
Why be a Christian? Only one reason: because it’s true.
- To have a life-changing encounter with the living God.
Faith is based on truth, not blind faith. Investigate, think, wrestle, decide.
Close your Spirit Cafe with prayer requests, praises, and encouragement to continue to move forward in our spiritual journey.
