Bible Study Notes: 06/26/15

Remember to please question what might not resonate with you or match up to scripture.  It is not my intent to mislead or misrepresent in any way.

James 1:21
When we were born again, our 'spirit man' was made perfect! Our 'spirit man' can't get more perfect because the Holy Spirit lives IN us [and He wouldn't be IN us if we weren't just right - which is what Jesus does for us].
"God's word was spoken so it could be written so we could hear it and so we could speak it."

James (Jesus' half brother) wasn't a believer until after the resurrection.
Genesis 1:27
  • Soul = will, mind, emotions.
  • Romans 12:1-2
  • Satan chips away at who we THINK we are. Society is twisting and turning constantly away from God.
  • Take care of the temple (body).
  • Educate the intellect (mind)
  • Fill the spirit man (spirit)
  • There's heaven. There's hell. And there's earth.
  • NEVER underestimate the power of the born again experience. It is everything!  C.S. Lewis calls it "the great exchange" - Jesus exchanged His life for us.
  • 1 Corinthians 15:45
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17
  • 2 Corinthians 5:21
  • Galatians 5:20
Guilt and condemnation kill your faith.
  • We are more than conquerors through Christ. The Holy Spirit lives in us.
  • Colossians 2:20 ... crucified
  • Colossians 2:13 and Romans 6:4 ... died and buried
  • Ephesians 2:1 ... alive
  • Ephesians 2:4-6 ... raised
  • 1 Corinthians 6:15-17 ... one spirit
  • Ephesians 1:22-23 ... His body
  • Colossians 1:27 ... He is in us
  • Colossians 2:10 ... we are in Him
  • 1 John 4:17 ... so are we in this world.
Make things happen that line up with His teaching.  Good things distract us from the best things.
  • Be aware of what you're thinking about. Think about what you are thinking about. Be mindful of your thought life.
  • You can't think and talk at the same time (try it sometime).
  • The tongue is the steering wheel of life.
  • Speak the truth of Christ - memorize it and draw from it.
  • 2/3 of our testament has to do with our behavior.
  • We are living epistles - letters from God.
God isn't moved by need. He's moved by faith.
  • He has everything we need/want. We have to reach out and accept it.
  • Faith is activated by action.
  • Proverbs 28:1  ... Boldness, Confidence, Assurance
  • Faith ... Living and acting like the bible is true. Romans 4:17
  • To be full of joy is = strength!
  • There's a difference between faith and mental assent.  True faith's first action - speak it. "Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth."
  • The word of God is faith food.
