Part 4 We must Agree with God

1-Jesus will save His people from their sins.

2-His sheep hear His voice and follow Him.

3-We must agree with His Word to be one of His.

4-What does the Word say that we must agree with in order to prove we are His children and therefore aware of His work in our lives?

We must agree with God that……..

First, that we are sinners.

-Sinners because of the first Adams sin

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

-Sinners because of our own sin

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Second, that because of that sin we are dead spiritually and will die physically.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;

James 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

Third, that the only hope to escape death is through Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Fourth, that those who hear His voice will see their need, want to be saved and call out to Him for salvation.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

So you have heard the voice of God through the Word of God and agreed with Him that you are a sinner You also know you will not find relief even in death unless you give your life to Jesus Christ. In awareness of your desperate need you have called out to Him to be saved and He has saved you. What is next? Does your life become free of trials and struggles with everything going perfectly? No, for now the real battle begins.

As one of His sheep you have heard His voice and been given spiritual life. You are a part of His family so your loving Heavenly father begins the process of teaching you to live the new life He has given you. He will teach you to live who you really are……

How does this happen? Stay tune for part 5….!!!!
