SCRIPTURE FOCUS: Jeremiah 6:16-17
Christian steadfastness is the quality of constant spiritual stability that a Christian chooses to have by remaining firm in his beliefs and convictions of Godly principles. Every Christian must resolve in their mind and heart to be immovable away from the life-giving principles of Jesus Christ.
GOD’S ORIGINAL PLAN: Philippians 4:4-5, 2 Corinthians 7:1, Matthew 5:48, Galatians 5:16-17
People desire to be free to do their own thing and not be held accountable to anyone. But this is not the way man was made. God made man to be a responsible being, under obligation to reverence his maker, and to be obedient to His will (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). If he refuses to be responsible, drastic consequences are threatened (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9).
- FREEDOM IN CHRIST : Hebrews 4:14, 1Peter 5:9, Galatians 5:13-14 While the Bible speaks often of the wonderful freedom that Christ offers to mankind, it certainly isn’t the kind of freedom that men have always wanted, but the kind he has always needed! This freedom is not a release from restrictions and restrains. “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32). Can one truly be a disciple of Christ without continuing in His Word; and obviously, His Word is Truth (John 17:17) that is capable of making one free! But free from what? Free from the burden and bondage of Sin and its threatened penalty (Romans 6:23). Free to live the way designed by God.
