Today with Christ

  1. 1. Today With Christ! 1 John 1:3
  2. 2. Introduction: • One of the best ways to help ourselves make sure we are doing the right things is to ask questions. 2 Peter 1:3,10-13 • Are you living Today with Christ? • Let us ask some questions that can help us to be sure that we are living with Christ today and everyday.
  3. 3. Have you died with Him? • We need to die to the sinful life. Romans 6:1-7 • Rom. 6:8 “Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.” Today With Christ!
  4. 4. Do you have this harmony? • Rom. 15:5 ESV “May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus” • Harmony with our brethren and with Christ to glorify God... Phil. 2:1-2; Eph. 4:3-4; Romans 15:6 Today With Christ!
  5. 5. Are you in His one body? • 1 Cor. 12:12 “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.” • You get into Christ’s one body when you obey His gospel and are baptized. 1 Cor. 12:13 • Christ’s body is the church / kingdom! Colossians 1:13,18, 24 Today With Christ!
  6. 6. Does Christ live in you, because you’ve crucified the old you? • Gal. 2:20 ESV “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” • Your old worldly self is to be crucified! Rom. 6:6; Gal. 6:14 Today With Christ!
  7. 7. Are you alive with Christ, or dead in sin? • Eph. 2:5-6 “even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved -- and raised us up with him…” • We receive God’s grace when we get with Christ (in baptism) which makes us alive from being dead in sin. 1 Peter 3:21 Today With Christ!
  8. 8. Have you been buried and raised with Christ? • Colossians 2:12-13 “having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God… 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses” Today With Christ!
  9. 9. What’s your desire? • Where do you want to be 100 years from now? • Phil. 1:23 “I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.” • It is our future home… 2 Corinthians 5:8-9 Today With Christ!
  10. 10. Is your old life of sin hidden? • Col. 3:3 “For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” • We are to put off (cease) the old sinful life and put on the new righteous Christ-like life… Ephesians 4:22-24 Today With Christ!
  11. 11. Are you a fellow heir with Him? • We all need to have an obedient faith and be baptized into Christ so that we can be children of God. Galatians 3:26-27 • Rom 8:17 and if children, then heirs-heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. Today With Christ!
  12. 12. Are You Living Today With Christ? • God directs us to live today and every day with Christ! • “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23 • Come follow Jesus and live with Him today and for all eternity! Acts 18:8; 2:38; 8:37; 1 John 2:25
