3 characteristics of true Christians

Wisdomforlife

  1. We worship (or serve) by the Spirit of God.
  2. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us.
  3. We put no confidence in human effort. 

                                                             (Philippians 3:3)

  • If we are unclear about #’s 2 & 3, we’ll cut the power line to # 1.
  • Spiritual growth should result in deeper commitment to #’s  2 & 3.
  • We simply cannot experience # 1 without unquestioned affirmation of #’s 2 & 3.
  • This is true for individual believers and for Churches.
  • Violations of #’s 2 & 3 are distortions of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Think about  it.
