THE MESSAGE

KEYS TO A FRUITFUL CHRISTIAN LIFE

********************************************

1.VIRTUE

The word of God admonishes the beleivers to add to their faith those qualities which would make their christian life fruitful. There are many christians who are living barren lives inspite of their faith in Christ. Therefore the word of God tells them to add virtue to their faith. A life of virtue is a life of power and boldness .

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

***************************

2 Peter 1:5-11

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue

to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness,

to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.

For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble;

for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

2 TIMOTHY 1:7

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

1 JOHN 4:18

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

HEBREWS 10:35

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

PSALM 34:4

I sought the LORD, and he answered me; e delivered me from all my fears.

2.KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is vital for a victorious christian life. God’s people perish because of lack of knowledge. The beleiver must constantly grow in the knowledge of God and his word. He must be aware of the promises and the commandments of God. He must know the principles of christian living. A basic ignorance of these precious truths will cause him to live a defeated life.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

***************************

Hosea 4:6

my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.

JOHN 8:32

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

3.TEMPERANCE

Temperance is a great protection in the life of a beleiver.It helps him live a balanced life and protects him from self destruction due to extreme lifestyles. It is a life of self control. Lack of temperance will lead to ruin in the life of a beleiver.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

***************************

ECCLESIASTES 7:16-17

Do not be overrighteous, neither be overwise— why destroy yourself?

Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool— why die before your time?

PROVERBS 30:7-9
