Christian Life; Your Quality of Life Changes For Good

Last update: Sunday, January 24, 2016
Christian Life
Summary

If you are living a Christian life, your life will change!

1 Peter 1:13-17 Therefore concentrate your minds, with the strictest self-control, and fix your hopes on the blessing that is coming for you at the appearing of Jesus Christ. 14 Be like obedient children; do not let your lives be shaped by the passions which once swayed you in the days of your ignorance, 15 but in your whole life show yourselves to be holy, after the pattern of the Holy One from whom you received your call. 16 For scripture says — ‘You will be holy, because I am holy.’ 17 And since you call on him as ‘Father,’ who judges everyone impartially by what he has done, let respectful awe be the spirit of your lives during the time of your stay on earth. (OEB) [read Leviticus 11:44,45]

Something to think about:
My brothers and sisters, your Christian life is different from your natural life, but in time they will become one life. The primary difference is you now live to please God. Before, you pleased either yourself or others. So many do not know their life must change. The quality of your life improves because you have the Holy Spirit in you. A person cannot know right from wrong without proper teaching. Jesus teaches us the right way to live. We must know what is good against what is not good for us. If not, we may never learn to please God. Has your quality of life changed?
Key Points:
  1. The new birth happens to people of all ages. In the eyes of God you begin your Christian life as a child. Much of what you do has to change. It is like being in the military. You learn to do things in new ways, to help and look out for each other and obey orders (discipline). To survive under adverse conditions, how to function in units and use weapons to defeat your enemies. Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the fashion of this world; but be transformed by the complete change that has come over your minds, so that you may discern what God’s will is — all that is good, acceptable, and perfect. (OEB)
  2. Follow Christ, no longer doing sinful things. Ephesians 2:2 For at one time you lived in sin, following the ways of the world, in subjection to the Ruler of the powers of the air — the Spirit who is still at work among the disobedient. (OEB)
  3. Do you know what is right or wrong with your life? Does your Christian life please God? Is He ashamed of you? I pray that this Bible study helps you find the answers. Psalms 37:30-31 The godly offer good counsel; they teach right from wrong. 31 They have made God’s law their own, so they will never slip from his path. (NLT)

Christian Life
Introduction
picture for christian life - Heisler Park, Laguna Beach, CA

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

Objective

This is a Bible study of “Christian life“. The goal is to give a broad range of Scriptures to make it clear that once you have Christ in your life you will not stay the same. Your life will change in the best ways for your good.

Grace Life

John 1:16-17 For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift. 17 For while the Law was given through Moses, grace ([a] unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ. (AMPC)

[a] Footnotes: John 1:17 Richard Trench, Synonyms of the New Testament.

Life under grace is different from life under the Law that God gave Moses (the Mosaic Law). Those under the Law wore garments with fringes {tassels}. Used to remind them of all the commandments of the LORD. Also to help them try to obey the Law. [Numbers 15:37-41; many sources say there are 613 commandments] —Grace Laws are written in our heart—not a set of rules that we have to memorize. In this Christian life, under grace, the Holy Spirit of God lives inside. It guides and helps us live a life that is pleasing to God.

John 16:13 Yet when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of his own accord; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. (RKJNT)

Please enjoy this Bible study it has many scriptures to help us better understand a Biblical view of living a Christian life. It has three study challenges to help those who want to learn how to study the Bible, are you up for a few challenges? Please enjoy.

Christian Life
Part 1: Repent and Change
picture for christian life - rac

“God overlooked the times when people didn’t know any better. But now he commands everyone everywhere to turn to him and change the way they think and act.”Acts 17:30 (GW)

Living a Changed Life a Christian Life

We exist because of the living God who will judge all (mankind). It is important that we do as He says, for those who believe in God, repentance is required and is not an option if you want to be saved.

Romans 2:14-16 Those who are not Jews don’t have the law. But when they naturally do what the law commands without even knowing the law, then they are their own law. This is true even though they don’t have the written law. 15 They show that in their hearts they know what is right and wrong, the same as the law commands, and their consciences agree. Sometimes their thoughts tell them that they have done wrong, and this makes them guilty. And sometimes their thoughts tell them that they have done right, and this makes them not guilty. 16 All this will happen on the day when God will judge people’s secret thoughts through Jesus Christ. This is part of the Good News that I tell everyone. (ERV)

Have you experienced times when you know what you are doing is wrong and you feel guilty? That is what Paul is talking about; it is when you feel guilty of sin that you should confess your sins and repent. I realize few may be familiar with relating sin with the word guilty. Conviction/guilt of sin come before repentance/confession; do you understand this? Please let me know if we need to give more detail on this matter.

Paul wrote to the Corinthians in his second letter warning to repent. In 1 Kings chapter 8 Solomon prayed for the children of Israel asking God to hear their prayers—if they met the condition of repenting and confessing their sins. These are only two examples of what God requires of us in regards to dealing with sin. There is so much more to this and in time I plan to give more insight about repentance and change.

2 Corinthians 12:20-21 For I am afraid that perhaps when I come I may not find you to be what I desire, and that you may find me to be what you do not desire; that perhaps there may be contention, jealousy, bitter feeling, party spirit, ill-natured talk, backbiting, undue eulogy, unrest; 21 and that upon re-visiting you I may be humbled by my God in your presence, and may have to mourn over many whose hearts still cling to their old sins, and who have not repented of the impurity, fornication, and gross sensuality, of which they have been guilty. (WNT)

1 Kings 8:46-48 “When your people sin against you — and there is no one who does not sin — and in your anger you let their enemies defeat them and take them as prisoners to some other land, even if that land is far away, 47 listen to your people’s prayers. If there in that land they repent and pray to you, confessing how sinful and wicked they have been, hear their prayers, O Lord. (GNT) [read 2 Kings 8:22-53]

Repentance is that change of a sinner’s mind which leads him to turn from his evil ways and live. The change wrought in repentance is so deep and radical as to affect the whole spiritual nature and to involve the entire personality. The intellect must function, the emotions must be aroused, and the will must act. Confession “…is the expression of a conviction of the heart.” The radical meaning is “acknowledgment,” “avowal,” with the implication of a change of conviction or of course of conduct on the part of the subject. (Excerpts from International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia, provided by Biblesoft, Inc.)

One might ask, is it true repentance when a person responds to someone telling them to repeat a “sinners” prayer? Oh, we must dig into this further, but not at this time; keep this thought in mind God knows our heart and attitude and only He knows when we are truly sorry for our sins. Until we meet again, may God touch your heart with His love and you apply His word to your life.

Question for ‘Christian life part 1’: Have you repented, i.e., asked God to forgive you and changed your ways?

Christian Life
Part 2: New Life
picture for christian life 2

Think about the things that are in heaven, not about things that are on earth.
Colossians 3:2 (WEB)

Living a New Life a Christian Life

You have a new life in Christ a Christian Life. Make your thoughts and desires about the hope and promise of heaven; “things above”. Living for Jesus should be your primary desire. When you repented and were baptized, the old you died. Now that you have been born again, become more like Jesus daily and the things of this world will become less important.

Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. (RKJNT)

Romans 8:5 They who follow their earthly nature are earthly-minded, while they who follow the Spirit are spiritually minded. (OEB)

We are in this world—on the earth—but not of this world. Unlike many in the world, our lives are not defined by our zip code (place of our residence), the car we drive or what we wear. We should show a Christian—Christ-like—life. Paul explains certain aspects of the Christian life later in the letter to the church in Colosse; see chapter 3 verses 5-10 below.

John 17:14-18 I have given them your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that you would take them out of the world, but that you would keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth: your word is truth. 18 As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. (RKJNT) [Read John 17:6-18]

Part 3: New Life II

Christian Life-Changed Life “Get rid of your old self and its habits, and clothe yourselves with that new self,” Colossians 3:9b-10a (OEB)

Did you complete the challenge in ‘Christian Life – Part 2’? If not, please go back and complete the challenge before going further. When we finish this series we will have a pretty good understanding about the changes that will or should happen in our lives. Are you excited about what God is doing for you?

Colossians 3:5-6 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: (KJV)

Colossians 3:8-9 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; (KJV)

Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. (KJV)

Colossians 3:6 ‘For because of these things the wrath of God is coming:’ (RKJNT). ‘ For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:’ (KJV). “Which (these) things” point back to the list of sins in verse 5; did you read/study the reference Scriptures for Colossians 3:5, 8-9 and Ephesians 5:5? The list should look like this:

  • fornication
  • evil concupiscence
  • anger
  • blasphemy
  • uncleanness
  • covetousness / idolatry
  • wrath
  • filthy communication
  • inordinate affection
  • malice
  • lies / lying
  • whoremonger (Ephesians 5:5)
Allow me to prove a point

Up to this point we have not talked about how we can gather other Scriptures to continue our study. There are many ways to study the Scriptures, I chose this particular passage because most would think there is nothing to go on. Paul is the author of 13 letters and possibly 14 (Hebrews; very questionable).

Allow me to make a simple observation, Paul always used his name in the first chapter and first verse of all of his writings, however, there is no mention of the name Paul in the KJV of the letter to the Hebrews.

Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, Titus and Philemon all begin with “Paul”—the very first word in each ‘Pauline’ letter to the churches.

We are creatures of habit including our way of wording sentences and that is how your cell phone offers certain words as you type. The AI {artificial intelligence} built into your phone is learning your patterns of speech with each text message you send. Okay, enough of that, what is the point?

Choose a study technique

Paul demonstrates his pattern with each letter. With that knowledge, we can be certain or assume he has other patterns. Back to the point; look at verse 6 how many phrases do you see?

  • 1) “For which things” OR “which things” 2) “wrath of God” OR “wrath of God cometh” 3) “children of disobedience”
Christian life challenge #2:

Important: this challenge is for those who are ready for advanced study everyone else should skip it.

Note: I chose to use studylight.org and biblestudytools.com for the following reasons:

  1. They allow the choice of ‘Pauline Epistles’ {letter written by Paul} to filter the results (ideal for this challenge) [explore this feature in both tools: both offer the option immediately below the search box; st.o’s “in:” and bst.c “filter results:”]
  2. Both give the best contextual view: some tools will only show the preceding and following verse (i.e., Ephesians 1:5-7 instead of the full context Ephesians 1:3-11 or 1:1-11).
  3. We can do compound searches and use basic boolean algebra operations (for advanced research); example:
    • if you decide to check two phrases at once enter “which things” OR “wrath of God”
      • The above search checks each passage of Pauline letter for either “which things” or “wrath of God”
      • if we chose to check the Pauline letters for that contain both “which things” and “wrath of God”; enter “which things” AND “wrath of God”
    • NOTE: 1) the boolean algebra operations, OR / AND, must be in all capital letters. 2) enclose phrases in double qoutes ” not single qoutes ‘.
  4. A key difference between the two tools: when you select all translations studylight.org is easier to navigate. See it here: studylight.org and biblestudytools.com.
  5. The most significant difference for this challenge, biblestudytools.com gives options for “footnotes” and “strongs numbers
Follow the links to complete the challenge.
  1. Method one: finding common phrases:
    1. The links are studylight.org and biblestudytools.com
    2. I pre-selected the phrases “which things” OR “wrath of God” from Colossians 3:6 to find other sins listed in the Pauline letters using biblestudytools.com.
      1. for this part of the challenge take note of the 6 results
      2. click/tap on Ephesians 5:6 KJV
      3. click/tap ‘Read Ephesians 5:6 in context
      4. now you should see Ephesians 5:1-11 (King James Version) if not don’t worry click / tap here.
      5. read all the verses and then focus on verses 3 through 5 to get more sins to add to your list.
      6. click on each of the sins to get theKJV NT Greek Lexicon
        • Be sure to read the definitions, make note of the Strong’s numbers and the transliterated words.
        • Take time to explore the KJV Verse Count
      7. recommendation: choose the Good News Translation using the drop-down arrow to the right of King James Version and reread all verses. If you had a problem click / tap here.
  2. Method two: take advantage of resources provided by others:
    1. The link is studybible.info
    2. I pre-selected Colossians 3:6 Cross References – KJV
      • unfortunately, with this tool we could not filter the results, we do have one of the best online cross-referencing tools; so we not only have non-Pauline letters but also Scriptures from the OT (another short-coming; but this is free)
      • click/tap on Ephesians 5:6
      • now either replace Ephesians 5:6 in the far left search box (located above Study Bible>Bible Versions…) or select Ephesians 5 (located immediately above the large font Ephesians 5:6)
      • read all of Ephesians 5
      • now focus on verses 3 through 5 to get more sins to add to your list.

Romans 8:7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

Romans 8:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Romans 8:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

Christian Life
Part 4: Loving Fellow Christians
picture for christian life - 3

Be sincere in your love for others. Hate everything that is evil and hold tight to everything that is good.
Romans 12:9 (CEV)

John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, so you also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (RKJNT)

In our Christian life, we are encouraged to love our Christian brothers and sisters sincerely. When they are happy, rejoice and when they are sad, weep with them. Remember we are many parts of one body! [Read Romans 12:9-21]

Do you love your fellow Christians as much as you love yourself? Do you love yourself? I do realize we are unique people; some may not know what it is like to love someone. Romans 12:9-21 is a good summary of the God-pleasing way to live a Christian life.

1 Peter 1:22-25 Since you have purified your souls by obeying the truth, so you have a sincere love of the brethren; love one another fervently from the heart. 23 You have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever. 24 For, All flesh is like grass, and all its glory is like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls away, 25 But the word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the word that was preached to you. (RKJNT)

  • verse 20 – Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
  • verse 21 – Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Was this challenge: easy, difficult, too long or confusing? Please explain your answer in the comment area below.

Loving God

1 John 4:20-21 If a man says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him, That he who loves God must also love his brother. (RKJNT)

The core—base element—the foundation and proof of our love for God is our love for each other. Live a Christian life that is pleasing to God standing on faith, praying in the Spirit. Always loving our fellow Christians and God, expecting salvation by His mercy. Do you love God? Show Him how much you love Him by loving each other.

Jude 1:16-23 These people are gripers and complainers, living according to their own [evil] desires, whose mouths speak boastfully, and who show partiality [toward certain people] to gain some advantage. 17 But you dearly loved ones, you should remember the message that was previously told to you by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, 18 for they were saying to you people, “In the last times [See I John 2:18; Hebrews 1:1-2] there will be mockers [arise], who will live according to their [own] ungodly desires.”

19 These are people who cause divisions [among God’s people]; they follow their natural inclinations [i.e., worldly principles], for they do not have the Holy Spirit [in their lives]. 20 But, you dearly loved ones, build yourselves up [spiritually] on [the foundation of] your most sacred faith; pray in [the power of] the Holy Spirit. 21 Keep yourselves in God’s love [i.e., continue to love God], as you look forward to [receiving] the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, [who will grant you] never ending life.

22 And you should show pity toward some people because they have doubts [regarding spiritual matters]; 23 you should save others [from hell, as though you were] snatching them out of the fire. And you should show pity toward some people, [coupled] with a fear [of the consequences of sin], hating the clothing contaminated by a physical sore [i.e., hating sin so much as to avoid it at all costs]. (AUV) {read Zechariah 3:1-5}

Christian Life
Conclusion

Romans 6:20-23 When you were servants of sin you were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had you at that time in the things which are now a shame to you? for the end of such things is death. 22 But now, being free from sin, and having been made servants to God, you have your fruit in that which is holy, and the end is eternal life. 23 For the reward of sin is death; but what God freely gives is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. (BBE)

It is good to know that our ways and thoughts get better during our Spiritual journey to be with God. The things we do, the way we treat others and our self-improve in ways that please God. We desire to hear God say “well done…”

Revelation 2:19 “I know your deeds, love, faithfulness, service, and endurance. Your labors greatly increase in quality as you travel along this journey.” (The Voice)

Living a Christian life is worth every struggle and hardship. Know that you are part of a Spiritual family that has an inheritance of eternal life, it is the promise of our Father in heaven, cherish your life, your Christian life and be blessed! Tim
