What's Life in Christ About – Spirit Filled Podcast Episode 111 This episode is a class John taught concerning the answer to what life in Christ is all about. WHAT’S LIFE IN CHRIST ALL ABOUT OUR PURPOSE Your identity 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace We have a purpose Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.   GOOD WORKS ARE OUR PURPOSE IN CHRIST Titus 2 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous for good works. Our Identity Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus The Meaning and Purpose For good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Created in Christ for Good Works!   IN CHRIST EPH 1 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace John 15 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. WE ARE NOT SAVED BY GOOD WORKS BUT FOR GOOD WORKS James 2 14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds. “Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. Faith without works is dead. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. 26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead. Hebrews 9 But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way.10 For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. The power to do good works comes from God. 2Cr 9:8 And God [is] able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all [things], may have an abundance for every good work. Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, according to the power that works in us… Change the way we pray. Acts 3 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; 3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. 4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. 5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. 6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. 7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God Hebrews 13 15 Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. 16 And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.   God will reward every good work Heb 6 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
