Teaching Notes are Bible studies we taught before GraceLife Ministries began publishing articles online in 1995. Some were presented as sermons, others as group studies.
Our hope is that these older studies will be a blessing to you in your life and ministry. Please use them in any way God leads you.
These teaching notes are from a series of studies about Biblical Theology.
[Podcast version at the end of this post.]
[These notes are from a study presented 45 years ago.]
We continue with our subject on Biblical Theology by looking closely at what the Bible teaches about Salvation in Jesus Christ. As we did in the first part of our study, we will include a list of other materials you can read that will augment your study of these wonderful topics.
Present Complete Salvation in Christ
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. Without Him there would be no hope, no life, no peace, no comfort. He is the great Prophet, Priest and King. He is the great Mediator between God and men.
This great salvation is a free gift of God. We are made heirs with Him. We’ve become part of the King’s family and will reign with Him forever.
To fully experience victory and joy in our salvation, we must realize seven things:
- We must accept and believe the fact that Christ has completely conquered our sin and given us eternal life
- We must fully surrender to Christ
- We must study the Word of God consistently
- We must be faithful in little things
- We must be regular in prayer
- We must witness with courage and vigor
- We must practice the presence of Christ in our lives
The seven points are excellent points for daily living. These are things that I can remember each day throughout my ministry and family life.
Every morning when I awake I should remember that my faith is complete in Christ and I have nothing to worry about. I should begin each day by surrendering my life to God anew. never should a day pass that I do not spend time in the precious Word of God. I need to always remember that my main work on earth is to be faithful, whether the things be big or small. A prayer life is absolutely essential to a powerful life. We have been called to witness that which we have both seen and heard. I need to witness every day as I have opportunity. I must practice the present of Christ every day.
