Do you struggle to understand how the Trinity is at work in your life? As we continue our sermon series Dying to Live, David Marvin shows us some practical ways that Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Father impact our faith.
Jesus frees us from condemnation.
Christians believe that their faith is not about what they do but what Jesus did. This distinguishes Christianity from any other world religion.
It is up to us to accept the gift of freedom from condemnation.
The Spirit leads and prompts us to life.
When we were placed in Christ, His Spirit was placed in us. And His Spirit leads us to life.
Our mind is the key to being transformed.
The best way to tell if what you’re hearing/feeling is from God is to read His Word so you can discern what His voice sounds like.
Often, we are looking for a word from God without opening the Word of God.
The Father adopts us as children.
At the time of Paul writing the book of Romans, adoption was focused on adults and about rights and status.
We have the same standing before God as Jesus Himself.
The same intimacy that Jesus has with the Father is the same intimacy that the Father wants to have with us.
God wants to take you places that you yourself cannot get to through your own efforts and abilities.
Discussing and Applying the Sermon
Do you still feel the guilt of your sin, or have you accepted the gift of freedom from condemnation?
In what ways are you training your mind to be influenced by things of Christ rather than the world?
How are you pursuing intimacy with your heavenly Father?
