Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

If you’re truly saved, does it always mean you’ll perform good works? Listen to this lesson to hear three views on how to get into Heaven and which is the correct one.. Learn about three gospels and how all include belief in the Messiah and are on the basis of faith and grace. See that faith plus works is a false gospel. Understand that in James 2, he is talking to believers and urging them to apply what they believe to their lives. Learn what being “swift to hear” means. When talking to unbelievers, let them know they need to believe in Christ as their Savior in order to go to Heaven.

Passage: Colossians 2:20-3:7 & Romans 6:1-22
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 53 mins 19 secs
Legalism has been described as a list of things one should and shouldn’t do, and, by adhering to that list God will bless us. It reduces spirituality to morality. Is there anything wrong in aspiring to Biblical standards? No, as long as we understand that adhering to standards does not cause us to grow spiritually nor does it cause God to bless us. Every spiritual blessing already belonged to us at the moment we believed. All we have to do is live in light of that reality. How is that accomplished?

For a believer, dominion of the sin nature died with Christ. To have new life the old life must die. Because our sin nature died with Christ (though our new natures continue to war with it during this life), we have the new life Christ’s resurrection makes possible. Our new life in Christ is empowered only by another gift, the Holy Spirit – something an unbeliever cannot have, no matter how moral.
