12 KEYS TO BECOMING LIKE JESUS - LOOKING AT JESUS WHO IS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH
********************************************************************************************************************************

1. SPIRITUAL BIRTH

The Lord has chosen us to be tranformed into the image of Jesus. Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit. Therefore the first key to a victorious life is to be born of the Spirit. The born again experience is the first step to a victorious life.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES
*********************************

Romans 8:29

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.



Matthew 1:20

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.



Luke 1:35

The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.



John 3:5

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’




2. SPIRITUAL POWER

Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit without measure which was the secret of his power. Jesus did not strive to live his life and fulfill his ministry with human strength. Therefore we must be filled with the Holy Spirit in order to such a victorious life and be a blessing in this world.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and
