Summary: How the Christian life works

Text: Romans 12:3-8 (quickview)  Title: How the Christian Life Works

Introduction

If you want to make the best of life it helps to know how things work! And here in Ireland- how things work can be very different from how things work in other countries.

Then as Christians we are not only living here in Ireland- We are also living in the Kingdom of God.

So you are not only figuring out how things work in Ireland- You are also figuring out how things work in the Kingdom of God.

Title: How the Christian Life works.

When we know how the Christian life works;

•The Christian life is BETTER –

•The Christian life is EASIER –

•The Christian life is MORE ENJOYABLE –

•The Christian life is TEACHABLE-

Text: Romans 12:3-8 (quickview) 

“For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we , being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.”

4.There is Grace for every need and situation

If you need Salvation there is a Grace that Saves!

It is by grace we are saved through faith and that not of ourselves it is the gift of God so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 (quickview) 

If you need Strength there is a Grace that Strengthens!

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Cor 12:9

If you need to get back on track there is a grace that does that!

“Let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.” Heb 12:28

If someone asks you how does the Christian life work- let your answer be…It works…through the grace given to me...

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found; was blind but now I see.
