Bible Text: Roman 7:14-25 | Preacher: Lionel Letcher | Series: Spiritual Growth 2020 | Roman 7:14-25
We need to move beyond just knowing about Jesus.
First: "Not I"
Then: "...but Christ!"
2 Cor 4:11,12
In the present age evangelism is centred on calling people to "make a commitment".
Many modern conversions are fertile soil for SELF
A healthy conversion based on:
- Conviction of sin &
- Repentance toward God...
...begins the new life with love and devotion to the Saviour
The new believer's heartbreaking experience of sin, allows him/her to move on past the "birth phase"...
...into the growth phase - knowing Christ as Lord and Life
Believers going through struggle and failure are being lovingly handled by God in a very personal way.
God works by paradox:
Success comes via failure - life springs out of death
2 Corinthians 4:11
