“And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch” (Acts 11:26). It was during the year that Barnabas and Paul Ministered to the church in Antioch when they were first called Christians. The name “Christian” began to spread as the gospel was preached in that part of the world, and in time it became a title of honor. The name “Christian” is found only three times in the Bible:
1) “And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch” (Acts 11:26).
2) “Then Agrippa said to Paul, ‘You almost persuade me to become a Christian’ ” (Acts 26:28).
3) “If anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed” (1 Peter 4:16). According to this verse it is evident that the mane added to their persecution.
What is a Christian? A Christian is a miracle, unless he is a Christian in name only. Remember Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 7:21-23). In other words, not everyone who claims to be a Christian is a born-again believer. All Christians are miracles because:
1) They have been born from above. They have been born into the family of God by a spiritual birth (John 3:1-8).
2) They are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
3) They have been made the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).
4) They have been declared just because they live by faith (Romans 5:1).
5) They have accepted God’s gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ, and God has s canceled their wages of sin, which is death (Romans 6:23).
6) They have been baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13).
7) They are the sons of God (1 John 3:2).
8) They are ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20).
9) They are strangers and pilgrims on the earth because heaven is their home (Hebrews 11:13).
A Christian is all of these and much, much more.
25-1 The Christian Life Is an Eternal Life
Christianity differs from all the religions of the world because it is infinitely more than mere religion. It is the very life of God’s Son, made to live in every believer. If believers will commit themselves totally to Christ, He will live His life through them.
1) “For the wages of sin is death.” Sin pays wages, and those wages are eternal. They are more than just physical death; they are eternal separation from the very mercy, grace, and love of God.
2) “But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God gives man two choices:
(a) To reject the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior and remain in sin;
(b) To accept the Lord Jesus Christ by faith as personal Savior and receive everlasting life (John 3:36;. 10:27, 28)
If you say “no” to God’s gracious gift of eternal life through His Son, you will collect your wages of sin—eternal separation from God. But thank God, you can accept His gift, which is eternal life. And when you do, the Lord Jesus Christ will come into your life, and His life within you will cancel the wages of sin, which is death.
God has promised to:
1) Cast all our sins into the depths of the sea (Micah 7:19);
2) Remove our transgressions from us, as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12);
3) Cast all our sins behind His back (Isaiah 38:17);
4) Blot out our transgressions like a thick cloud (Isaiah 44:22);
5) Remember our sins no more (Jeremiah 31:34; cf. Hebrews 8:12, 10:17).
God in His love offered His Son, the Messiah, to a nation Israel almost two thousand years ago. “He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him” (John 1:11). They rejected their Messiah. But God has promised that Israel, as a nation, will one day receive His gift of eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ—their Messiah (Romans 11:25, 26). The prophecy of Jeremiah will be fulfilled, “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah [that new covenant is through the Lord Jesus Christ]…For I will forgive their iniquity [their wages of sin], and their sin I will remember no more” (Jeremiah 31:31, 34). This is going to be a great day for God’s people. But they don’t have to wait individually. If they will come and receive the Lord Jesus Christ—God’s gift—they can have that new covenant with God and know that all of their sins are cancelled; God will remember them no more—forever. When Jews or Gentiles accept God’s wonderful gift, they have unending life.
It is most difficult for us, being creatures of time, to understand an. eternal God. Jesus Christ was with the Father from eternity; He has no beginning and no ending (Revelation 1:8). He is with the Father now. God promises eternal life, and when we recognize that He is offering us the very life of Christ, it staggers our imagination. In the Gospel of John the Lord speaks of Himself as the Good Shepherd (john 10:11, 27-30). He said:
1) “The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
2) “My sheep hear My voice.” The Bible is the very Word of God. If you neglect to read God’s Word, you will not hear the voice of the Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 3:7, 8).
3) “And I know them.” If you are a sheep (born-again) you have eternal life. You will recognize the voice of God as you feed upon His Word.
4) “And they follow Me.” Are you a true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ? If you have eternal life you are one of His sheep, and when He speaks you follow. But remember, Jesus also said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 7:21). In other words, Jesus is saying that not everyone who professes to know Him as the Good Shepherd is one of His flock. If you have eternal life and know the Good Shepherd, you will want to follow Him and do His will.
5) “And I give them eternal life.” He gives this eternal life to all who will
(a) recognize His deity;
(b) recognize His voice;
(c) take up their cross and follow Him (Mark 8:34-38).
6) “And they shall never perish [be lost]; neither shall anyone snatch them our of My hand.” Why? Because He is the all-powerful Good Shepherd.
7) “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all.” He is their Good Shepherd to protect them from the wolves of this world. He is greater than:
(a) death or life;
(b) angels or demons;
(d) things past, present, or future.
“Neither…height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38, 39).
1) “And no one is able to snatch them our of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”
How safe are we in Christ? “The Lord [Jesus] is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). You can lie down in peace even though the world may hate you, because your Shepherd keeps you in the hollow of His hand.
Because one day you came to the Lord Jesus Christ by faith, and accepted Him (God’s gift of eternal life) as your personal Savior, the Lord—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—keeps you now, and will keep you forever.
25-2 The Christian Life Is a Faith Life
(1 Peter 5:5-9)
Faith is a gift of God. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
1) We are saved by faith (Ephesians 2:8)
2) Faith helps us to steadfastly resist our adversary the Devil, who like a roaring lion walks around seeking to devour us (v. 8).
3) We live by faith (Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38).
4) We walk by faith (Romans 4:12).
5) Faith moves mountains (Matthew 21:21).
6) Faith builds us up (Jude 20).
7) Faith quenches all the fiery darts of the wicked (Ephesians 6:16).
8) Faith helps us to overcome the world (1 John 5:4).
There are two things that the Bible requires of the Christian’s faith (Hebrews 11:6):
1) The Christian must believe that God is. None of the writers of the Bible argued for the existence of God; it was assumed. Even the Lord Jesus Christ, who came down from the Father, never tried to prove that He exists. To believe that there is a Creator is the first part of Christian faith. Only a fool says, “There is no God” (Psalm 14:1).
2) The Christian must believe that God is a “rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” The Christian faith is believing that God does exist, and that He rewards faith in this life and the life to come (Revelation 22:12, 13).
The Christian’s faith:
1) Keeps the Christian saved by the power of God and ready for heaven anytime (1 Peter 1:5).
2) Is of greater value than gold refined with fire. Your faith will be tested many times and in many ways, but it is more precious than gold that perishes. For the more it is tested the stronger it becomes (1 Peter 1:6, 7).
Because you have Christian faith, you are sometimes “grieved by various trials…yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory” (1 Peter 1:6, 8; cf. James 1:2-4).
Job’s faith was tested to the fullest. Then he took his case directly to God, and cried out, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” then in unswerving faith he declared, “I know that I shall be vindicated” (Job 13:1-18). That is faith!
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). In this abstract definition of faith, there are two spheres of operation:
1) “Things hoped for.” This is the realm of the material and the physical. When the Christian has a need in the material or the physical, faith can hope for it. If it is a need that will glorify God, you can claim it by faith, standing upon promises found in the Word of God, such as:
(a) “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
(b) “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).
(c) “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15).
(d) “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
(e) “God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
2) “Things not seen. “ This is the realm of the spiritual, the invisible. We do not usually need faith to believe in things we can see. Faith believes in things that cannot be seen. It was reported of Moses, ‘By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king, for he endured as seeing Him [God] who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27). By faith Moses was conscious of the presence of God whom he could not see. That is faith!
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Hebrews 11:6).
25-3 The Christian Life Is a Service Life
In verses 16 and 17, the Holy Spirit, through the apostle Paul, reveals four things that admonish and give direction to the Lord’s servants:
1) “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” The words of Christ are found in the Gospels, Acts, and Revelation, and are quoted in other New Testament books. The Word of Christ will make you rich in all spiritual wisdom and knowledge (Romans 11:33).
2) “In all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another.” When the Holy Spirit makes you rich in the Word of Christ, you are to share it with others. The riches of His saving grace are to be shared with the lost (Matthew 28:19; cf. John 3:15, 18). When the Holy Spirit gives us a greater understanding of any part of God’s Word we are to pass it on to other servants of Christ.
3) “In psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” This is worship. You are never qualified to serve until you first worship your Lord.
4) “And whatever you do”:
(a) “In word”—preach a sermon, teach a Sunday school lesson, read the Bible to the sick and pray with them, hand out a gospel tract, share God’s plan of salvation with a lost soul.
(b) “Or deed”—clean the house, cook a meal, mow the lawn, run a business. Do whatever your lot in life is.
(c) “Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus”—regardless of how meager the task, if you will do it to the glory of God you will be blessed rather than frustrated.
(d) “Giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (vv. 16, 17). We often miss the greatest spiritual blessing when we do a good deed and then think, “This is beneath me, I am too big to have to perform such a small task.” Jesus said, “For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward” (Mark 9:41).
Every born-again Christian is to serve his Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. Paul called himself “a bondservant of Jesus Christ” (Romans 1:1). A bondservant was one sold into slavery for the rest of his life. Paul wrote to the church at Corinth reminding them of who they were in Christ (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20).
1) “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you?” Every believer has the indwelling Holy Spirit.
2) “You are not your own.” You belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, body, soul, and spirit.
3) “For you were bought at a price.” His holy, sinless life was the price He paid for you.
The life of service requires total commitment. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable [spiritual] service” (Romans 12:1). Christian services are of and by the Holy Spirit; therefore, they are spiritually discerned. If you are not a born-again child of God, this lesson to you is foolishness. Paul said, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).
In the parable of the talents, the man who received five talents invested them and gained five more for his lord, who rewarded him saying, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord” (Matthew 25:21). Likewise, the man with two talents was rewarded because he was faithful in the small things. Someone said, “There is nothing little about God and nothing great apart from Him.” You cannot do a little thing for God if you will do it to His glory.
The Christian life is a life of service that will be rewarded here on earth and in heaven.
25-4 The Christian Life Is a Warring Life
(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
The Christian life is a spiritual warfare. Your enemy is Satan, the god of this humanistic world system. In his army are legions of demons, who perform his will. There are only two families in this world (1 John 3:10):
1) The family of Satan (John 8:44).
2) The family of God (1 John 3:1, 2).
Every human being, from Adam to the last person to live upon this earth, is or will be a member of the family of Satan or the family of God.
Satan hates the Lord Jesus Christ and the family of God because the Lord came into the world to “destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8)—this Jesus did on Calvary when He spoke the word of victory saying, “It is finished!” (John 19:30). Satan is a defeated foe and God will, at the end of the Millennium, cast him into hell—the eternal lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal” (v. 4). Even though we live and walk in a body of flesh, our weapons are not a product of man’s ingenuity. We dare not war with Satan and his allies in the energy of our carnal nature, as Simon Peter attempted to do when the Roman soldiers came to arrest Jesus. Peter drew his sword and cut off the ear of Malchus, the servant of the high priest. Jesus reached out and healed his ear, then rebuked Peter by ordering him to put up his sword. When we war in the energy of the flesh we fail and stand to be rebuked as Peter was. Our warfare is not against flesh and blood, but against a satanic system that functions in the spiritual sphere of individuals, nations, cults, and false religions motivating them to rebel against God and His Word (Ephesians 2:1-3). Therefore, our weapons are not carnal, but spiritual.
The only way that we can defeat Satan and his legions of demons is to “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might,” and to “put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:10-18). There are seven spiritual parts to the armor of God. In their function, each one is just as important as the other. Each is a source of power and protection to all of the vital parts of the Christian. There are three parts of this spiritual armor that require special attention to prepare the Christian for a life of spiritual warfare:
1) “The shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one” (Ephesians 6:16). Satan and his demons have power but our God, Jesus Christ, has all authority. In His resurrected body, Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18). Our God has authority over all power. He is our shield of faith. When Abraham feared his enemies, God spoke to him saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield [defense], your exceedingly great reward” (Genesis 15:1). David said, “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12; cf. 2 Samuel 22:2, 3). Our God is a shield to give us total protection in our spiritual warfare.
2) “The sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). When Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to have personal combat with Satan, He was tempted (tested) in every point that we are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15). In the wilderness, Jesus, the God-Man, defeated Satan in every temptation by using “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Three times He drew the all-powerful sword as He quoted from the book of Deuteronomy; He said, “It is written” (Matthew 4:4-11; cf. Deuteronomy 6:13, 16; 8:3). He used the inerrant Word of God as the offensive weapon and defeated Satan.
3) “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:18). Unceasing prayer must always accompany the spiritual warrior as he engages Satan and his allies in spiritual conflict (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
In the hour of our temptation, whether it be the “lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” (1 John 2:15, 16). God has promised that He “will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). We have that way of escape with “the shield of faith” and “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Keep your armor polished with “all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:16-18), and God has promised that we will be “more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). Another promise on which we can stand when tempted by the Devil or his demons is found in Isaiah. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord” (Isaiah 54:17).
25-5 The Christian Life Is a Successful Life
Paul tells us that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God [both the Old and the New Testaments], and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). The Scriptures were not given to you carelessly, but deliberately for your edification, and are “profitable” in that they build you up in Christ.
Success according to the Word of God is just the opposite of success according to the world. Most of the men and women of the Bible would be called failures today, by the standards of this world system; but they were successful according to God’s standards. We have an example in Hebrews 11:36-39:
1) “Still others [Old Testament heroes and heroines of faith] had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment”—but they were successful.
2) “They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheep skins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented”—but they were successful.
3) “They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth”—but they were successful.
“And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise.” In other words, even though they remained faithful to God, they did not receive the promise, but they were successful in His eyes.
This does not necessarily mean that Christians who have accumulated great wealth are not in the will of God. Abraham was one of the wealthiest men of his day. David and Job also enjoyed great wealth: As you study the Bible, you will see that God has entrusted a comparative few of His children with the wealth of this world.
God gave Joshua a fourfold conditional promise:
1) Prosperity. “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you” (v. 3).
2) Victory in battle. “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life” (v. 5).
3) “Good success” (v. 8). He would be successful in all that God commanded him to do.
4) A reward for obedience. “I will not leave you nor forsake you” (v. 5).
This fourfold promise was given to one man; however, you can claim that promise if you are willing to meet God’s conditions and leave the choice to Him. he may choose to bless you with spiritual victories and success, but not prosper you in the wealth of this world. If you seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, He has promised to:
1) Supply all your needs (Matthew 6:25-34; cf. Philippians 4:19).
2) Open the “windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10).
3) Bless you in your spiritual and material needs. “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38).
As you place God first in your life, He will supply all your needs. Therefore, you can concentrate on laying up treasures in heaven “where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal…For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-24).
God promised Joshua all of this before he crossed the Jordan River. The Jordan separates Canaan (the Land of Promise) from the wilderness.
1) Canaan is not a type of heaven. It is a type of the victorious Christian life; it is living in the will of God. (Romans 12:1, 2).
2) The wilderness is a type of failure and defeat in which the carnal Christian dwells. It is living out of the will of God. The children of Israel wandered there for forty years because of their unbelief at Kadesh Barnea (Deuteronomy 1:19-46).
Before Joshua could possess Canaan, he had to cross the Jordan and drive out “the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites” (Joshua 24:11). Before we can experience success in the Christian life we must drive out the forces of evil that draw us away from God, and declare war against the works of the flesh—“adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like” (Galatians 5:19-21).
God gave Joshua a fourfold condition for a successful Christian life:
1) Cross your Jordan. “Arise, go over this Jordan” (v. 2). God gave Canaan to Israel, but they had to cross over the Jordan and take it by faith. They had to “possess their possessions” (Obadiah 17). If you are to know true spiritual success, you must cross your Jordan—put your faith into action (John 11:40).
2) Know God’s Word. “this Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth” (v. 8). Joshua was to fill his mouth with God’s Word. He was to be ready at all times to proclaim the Word of God. Like Paul, he was not ashamed of it (Romans 1:15, 16). Joshua had only the first five books of the Bible. We have all sixty-six books—the complete Scripture. To fill your mouth with God’s Word you must “be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
3) Meditate on God’s Word. “You shall meditate in it [God’s Word] day and night” (v. 8). Joshua was to fill his mind with God’s Word. He was to ponder it—turn it over and over in his mind. He was to chew it as a cow chews the cud. He was to meditate on it and keep it on his mind day and night. He was to hide it in his heart (Psalm 119:11). To be a successful Christian, you must fill your mind with God’s Word and meditate (think) on it (Psalm 1:2).
4) Apply God’s Word. “That you may observe to do according to all that is written in it” (v. 8). Joshua was to fill his time by obeying God’s Word. When King Saul was disobedient to God, Samuel said, “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice” (1 Samuel 15:22). To be a successful Christian, you must fill your time with deeds to obey God’s Word. You must apply His Word to your life in order to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).
To be a spiritual success, you must meet God’s fourfold condition. As you live your life for Christ day by day, remember to claim the fruit of the Spirit, which is love. Love is manifested through joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-25).
