Deskripsi

Take Hold Of The Freedom That Is Yours In Christ!

Do you want to become an even more fruitful disciple of Jesus?
Are you tired of not fulfilling your full potential as a Christian?

No matter how long or short a time you have been a Christian, or how far you are on the journey, you will find The Steps To Freedom In Christ a wonderfully refreshing spiritual check-up. It will help you clear away the spiritual cobwebs and connect with Jesus in a deeper way. Many use it on a regular basis to give God an opportunity to highlight attitudes and behaviors that need to change and to uncover areas where their faith is not as strong as they would like it to be.
It's also extremely effective for those facing particular challenges such as:
· condemning thoughts
· patterns of wrong behavior
· spiritual struggles
· hopelessness

The Steps to Freedom in Christ

THE WHOLE GOSPEL

God created Adam and Eve in His image and in His likeness. They were both physically and spiritually alive. Being spiritually alive meant that their souls were in union with God. Living in a dependent relationship with their Heavenly Father, they were to rule over the birds of the sky, the beasts of the field, and the fish of the sea. They were accepted, secure, and significant. However, acting independently of God, they chose to disobey Him and their choice to sin separated them from God. They immediately felt fearful, anxious, depressed, and insecure. Because Eve was deceived by Satan and because Adam sinned, all their descendants are born physically alive, but spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1). Since all have sinned (Romans 3:23), those who remain separated from God will struggle with personal and spiritual conflicts. Satan became the rebel holder of authority, and the god of this world. Jesus referred to him as the ruler of this world, and the Apostle John wrote that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one (1 John 5:19).

Jesus came to undo the works of Satan (1 John 3:8), and take upon Himself the sins of the world. By dying for our sins, Jesus removed the barrier that existed between God and those He created in His image. The resurrection of Christ brought new life to those who put their trust in Him. Every born-again believer’s soul is again in union with God and that is most often communicated in the New Testament with the prepositional phrases in Christ, or in Him. The Apostle Paul explained that anyone who is in Christ is a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). The Apostle John wrote, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name (John 1:12 NKJV), and he also wrote, See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are (1 John 3:1).

No amount of effort on your part can save you, and neither can any religious activity, no matter how well intentioned. We are saved by faith, that is, by what we choose to believe. All that remains for us to do is put our trust in the finished work of Christ. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourself, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8–9). If you have never received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can do so right now. God knows the thoughts and intentions of your heart, so all you have to do is put your trust in God alone. You can express your decision in prayer as follows:

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. I acknowledge that I have sinned and that I cannot save myself. I believe that Jesus came to give me life and by faith I
