Let His life be what others see in you
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
As we conclude the journey to the condemnation being removed, we want to look at what kind of lifestyle will lead to a guilt free life. THERE IS ONLY ONE. Allowing Christ to live HIS live through me.
1. I must have His mind – Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
A. That means a surrender on my part
B. That means a trust on my part
C. That means a dependence on my part
II. I must believe He has my best interest in mind
A. I cannot understand His thoughts – Isaiah 55:8-9 – 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my
ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and
my thoughts than your thoughts.
B. I cannot understand His ways
C. I cannot comprehend how much He loves me
III. You must quit trying to reason it out
A. Do not substitute reasoning for obedience – 1 Samuel 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt
offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to
hearken than the fat of rams.
B. Quit trying to always find an explanation – (Obey even when you do not understand)
C. Our weakness brings His strength – 2 Corinthians 12:10 – herefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in
necessities, persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
IV. You will become what the most important person in your life thinks of you
A God the Father thinks so much of you that He sent Christ to redeem you – John 3:16 For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
B. Jesus thinks so much of you that He became your substitute – Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be
ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
C. The Holy Spirit thinks so much of you that He chooses to live within you – John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the
world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with
you, and shall be in you.
