The secret of the Christian Life

There are some things i disagree with Gene Edwards on. However I think this article is a good one. It is taken from one of his books.

THE SECRET OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By: Gene Edwards

What have you been told is the secret to the Christian life? Pray and read your Bible? Go to church? Witness? Speak in tongues? Tithe?

Let me go on record. I do not believe anything on that list even comes close to the issue of how to live the Christian life. All have one inherent flaw. The fatal flaw? Every item on the aforementioned list assumes that it is possible to live the Christian life.

Law and Grace…. Mortal Enemies

This is another writing in the book by Dan Stone. Some people justamaze you with their understanding of relationship.

Law and Grace: Mortal Enemies
By: Dan Stone

Law and grace are mortal enemies. Religion asserts, “No, they aren’t mortal enemies. They can flow together, like the Missouri and Ohio rivers flow into the Mississippi, and they become the Mississippi.” Every place I’ve ever been in organized religion, I’ve found that belief. But Paul was saying, “NO? They never flow together. They’ve always been mortal enemies. They will always be mortal enemies.

The Mystery of Union

This is taken from Dan Stone’s book “The rest of the Gospel when the Partial has worn you out” Beautiful insight.

The Mystery of Union
By: Dan Stone

Paul’s teaching to believers focused on a great mystery. To the church in Colossae he wrote of

“…the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:25-27)

Christ in us.

The Gospel is the call to rest

This article is by Malcolm Smith. He is one of the great teachers on Grace. I have seen him a few times when he stopped in at a few Fellowships that I attended over the years. Here is the Gospel.

THE GOSPEL
By: Malcolm Smith

The Gospel is the call to rest, to receive the free, undeserved gift that God has given us in Christ. There is nothing man can do to earn salvation from his past, or his present acceptance and walk with God.

Power or Life?

This is another excerpt from Classic Christianity. All my life i hear christians speak of “Power”. It makes me wonder, do they seek the Lord for the Love relationship he seeks, or do they seek him because of what he can do for them?

POWER OR LIFE?
By: Bob George

I discovered why Christian service had been killing me. I already knew about the Holy Spirit; in fact, I had taught lectures about His ministry in our lives. But I always associated Him with power: giving me power to share Christ, power to understand the Bible, power to teach, power to serve. Of course, there is truth in that.

What is the Goal of the Christian Life?

Here is a short but oh so true essay taken from the book Classic Christianity by Bob George.

THE GOAL OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By: Bob George

The Christian world is obsessed with sin. It’s all we talk about. Most of our preaching and teaching is directed toward getting people to quit sinning. Are you ready for a really shocking statement? The goal of the Christian life is not to stop sinning! To use the analogy of the starving man, most Christian teaching is like a person following a starving man around saying, “You stay out of the garbage! Do you hear me? Don’t eat the garbage!
