  • Those who are in Chirst have “laid aside the old self with its evil practices” (Col.3:9, Eph.4:22) and “have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him” (Col.3:10). This new self “has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth” (Eph.4:24)\n

  • As branches of the true vine, we do not create life, but we receive it through our connection with the vine. The new life that flows in and through us is displayed in the fruit we bear, and this new fruit not only nourishes others but also contains the seeds of its own reproduction. This life is sustained by receiving and abiding as branches in Christ the vine.\n

  • The insights and benefits of EL spirituality are sometimes obscured by erroneous theology. Proponents of this approach have been known to slip into the errors of:\nPERFECTIONISM: we no longer sin, or repentance for sin is unnecessary.\nPASSIVITY: the Christin life is all of Jesus and none of me, so I should let go and let God.\nEXPERIENTIAL GNOSTICISM: teaching that when people come to apprehend the Cross and their identity in Christ, everything is suddenly different and permanent victory is theirs.\nSome may experience a dramatic realization of their union with Christ and get off the treadmill of performance-based acceptance, but others may come to understand these identity truths in more gradual ways.\n\nThe spiritual life should not be reduced to a sudden experience or series of experiences, as meaningful as these may be. Spirituality also involves a process of transformation in which we are progressively conformed to the image of Christ in our character and conduct. \n

In Scripture He has revealed his person, powers, and perfections.\nWe cannot hope to understand the spiritual life unless we lay hold of and cling to the truth of God’s character, especially His love and goodness.\n

  • Fallen people sin because they are sinful by nature. It is not that they are sinners because they commit certain sins. Without the redemptive work of Christ, we would be cut off from God without hope of restoration, because “those who are in the flesh cannot please God” (Ro.8:8). But God in His goodness has provided a way to deliver us from this slavery to sin and death. When people place their trust in Christ, they become new creatures (2Co.5:17) with spirits that are fully in tune with God.\n

  • This conflict between the inner self and the outer self is most evident in the territory of our physical and psychological needs and the course we take to fulfill them. These needs are legitimate and God-implanted, and it is His intention to satisfy them and thus draw us to Himself. We are inherently motivated to have our needs met, but it is extremely easy for us to be deceived into the world’s thinking that they can be met in some place other than the hand of God.\n\n1. Love and Acceptance: Everyone needs the security that comes from feeling unconditionally loved and accepted by at least one other individual.\n\n2. Significance and Identity: People need a sense of personal significance and identification with someone or something greater than themselves.\n\n3. Competence and Fulfillment: Another universal human need is the sense of competence and fulfillment that comes from the belief that one’s life has made a difference and that he or she has accomplished something that will last.\n

  • It is deceptive to turn to people, things, and circumstances to meet our needs, because non of these can fully satisfy them. Yet many believers frequently fall into this trap, sometimes applying a Chrstian veneer over the same futile process used by non-Christians. God has set eternity in our heart (Eccl.3:11), and He alone can fill the void.\n\nThis is not to say that it is wrong to be concerned about our appearance, our possessions, our accomplishments. Whatever we do as “ambassadors for Christ” (2Co.5:20) should be characterized by excellence, because it is done to the glory of God (1Co.10:31; Col.3:23). But if our joy and peace depend upon how we look, what we own, or how well we perform, we are looking not to the Creator but rather to the creation to meet our God-given needs.\n

  • The biblical balance between the excesses of legalism and license is liberty. Instead of doing what we have to do or doing as we please, we have the true freedom in Christ to do as he pleases. Liberty in Christ stresses inner transformation as the key to outer manifestation. Growth in grace is accomplished by knowing and depending upon the person of God. Lack of divine blessing comes from unbelief, not from failure of devotion.\n
