Teaching Notes: On Dynamic Christianity – The Life!

I was raised by Christian parents and attended both a Christian church and school as a child, but did not understand Christianity until after I became an atheist and investigated the true meaning of Christianity as an adult. It is Christ living in us – “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).

It is Christ living in us that enables us to comprehend God’s deep love for us and be filled with all the fullness of God –

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19

Christianity is not dull, it is not lifeless; it is exciting and full of life! Christianity comes to each of us through the power of Christ’s resurrection from the dead –

Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” Romans 1:3-4

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” Philippians 3:10

We continue with the second part of our special series from more than 40 years ago about Dynamic Christianity. We invite you to read and share with others in any way God leads you.

Teaching Notes: On Steps To Disciplined Obedience

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20

As we saw in the Discipleship series, obedience to Christ is central to the theme of being a Christian. We recently found this study from the 1970’s that shared “steps” to disciplined obedience as a follower of Jesus Christ.
