A Guide for Young Christians

John W. Robbins

When God saves us sinners, he causes us to believe certain propositions about himself and about ourselves—ideas that we formerly thought were not true. In an instant, God resurrects us from the spiritual death of unbelief and makes us understand and believe the truth about both Jesus Christ and ourselves. Scripture refers to this event by using several figures of speech: being born again, being born from above, enlightening the mind, being resurrected from the dead, and giving us a heart of flesh for our heart of stone. What this figurative language literally means (and if you do not know what figurative language literally means, you do not know what it means) is that God affects our minds directly, causing us to accept as true, ideas we formerly thought were not true. He gives truth—figuratively called “light” in Scripture—directly to our minds.

Pastors are Failing to Mature Christians

Pastors are Failing to Mature Christians
Get off the MILK and on the MEAT!
 
How to Grow in Christ Series #17
 
11/14/10
 
Purpose: To learn from Scripture alone how to begin maturing in Christ by growing in New Covenant theology
 and not holding on to Old Covenant theology.
 
“Continuity” Covenant Theology Versus “Dis-Continuity” Dispensational Theology
 
As a pastor, I have sat under other pastors in the past and as a member of their congregations I finally realized that I could not
 grow under their ministry, because these men were not mature in Christ.
 
A favorite maxim of mine is:
   you can’t impart what you don’t possess.
 
If a pastor has not got off of the milk of the Word on to the meat of the Word, then his ministry can’t grow beyond
 his own personal growth in Christ.
 
It breaks my heart to meet Christians that have been saved for many years, however, they are still on the milk of the Word.
 
They don’t know that they don’t know;
they live impoverished Christian lives because they are under pastors that are not capable of maturing them in the Word.
 
The Word of God is very clear concerning the importance of Christians becoming mature in Christ.
 

Heb 5:12  For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles

 of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

Heb 5:13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

Heb 5:14  But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses

exercised to discern both good and evil.

Heb 6:1  Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection,

not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,

Col 1:28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present

 every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

Col 1:29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

Eph 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,

Eph 4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

Eph 4:13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man,

to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

Eph 4:14  that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine,

 by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

Eph 4:15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—

Eph 4:16  from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the

 effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

 

From these Scriptures we can see that God wants every Christian to become mature in Christ.

How to Live Your Last Day

How to Live Your Last Day
How to Grow in Christ Series #18
11/21/10
 
If your doctor told you that you had only twenty four hours to live how would you choose to live the last day of your mortal existence?
 
Would you want to fly to Paris and have the best meal of your life? Perhaps you would want to go over how much money you have made in your life and gaze upon all of your assets?
 
Or would you want to spend your last hours watching your favorite movies?
Maybe you would call all of your family and friends to share the last few hours of your life with you. If you love wine would, you want to drink a few of the best bottles of wine and be high on the greatest wine before you die and thereby drown all of your fears?
 
We could continue this list of things that people might want to pursue before they died ad infinitum, however, the wise person that is a Christian should ask themselves, “How would my God want me to live the last day of my Christian life?”
 
I believe His answer would be that the Christian should live their last day the same way they should have been living their entire life, according to Scripture, for the glory of the Father (I Cor.10:31) through being, moment-by-moment, occupied with the life of the resurrected Christ (Gal.2:20) by means of the filling of the Holy Spirit (Ephs.5:18).
 
In other words, we should be living a Scriptural, Trinitarian Christian existence so that the world could witness what redeemed humanity looks like for the glory of God the Father.
 
Purpose: To learn from Scripture alone how a Christian should live the final day of their life.
