Discipleship characteristics – Genuine faith bonds me to Jesus in and through me .. a supernatural walk where God’s will is done on earth.
Is My Faith A Fraud?
<< ‘Is My Faith A Fraud?’ >>
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY the FAITH of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Jesus’ demonstrated real faith when He surrendered Himself to die in His flesh on the cross. He knew that His Father would raise Him up.
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Here is one of the key discipleship characteristics. Our cross is presented to us for our unconditional surrender – totally dependent on Jesus – on ‘hearing’ and obeying ‘His voice’.
‘..neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me..’
Jesus wants to reach out to a dying world before it is judged.
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us..
Genuine faith opens the door to a supernatural walk where God’s will is done on earth.
