From Doctrine to Duty: New Creatures
SUNDAY, MARCH 06, 2016
Posted by: Truth Community Church | more..

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Every Christian is a new creation in Christ. Paul reminds the Corinthians that, though they had once lived in exceeding immorality, they were no longer enslaved to these sins. God had granted them forgiveness and sanctification through repentance and faith in Christ (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

God can save the vilest sinner and transform him into one who loves the One who saved him. Paul’s words should encourage every Christian that he is a new man and is capable, by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, to strive for the righteousness of Christ.

What does it look like to be a new creature? Paul says we consider our earthly bodies to be “dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry” (Colossians 3:5). We set aside “anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech” and “put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him” (3:8, 10).

As new creatures, we display the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22, 23). We imitate God (Ephesians 5:1) and offer our lives as living sacrifices in a continuous act of worship to God (Romans 12:1).

It is wonderful to know doctrine, but doctrine that does not display itself in practical godliness is useless. Faith without works is dead (James 2:17). God grants to His children a living faith.

Therefore—because scriptural truth is so magnificent—therefore—because we are bought with the precious blood of Christ—therefore let us live as new creatures and walk in a manner worthy of our great Christ, who loved us and gave Himself up for us (Galatians 2:20).

From Doctrine to Duty
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2016

The word “therefore” in the Bible often indicates movement from the proclamation of doctrinal truth to the believer’s responsibility to live in light of that truth. The idea is: based on the truth just stated, here is how the...

On Training Children
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2016
Posted by: Truth Community Church | more..
If you would train your children rightly, train them in the way they should go, and not in the way that they would go on their own. Children are born with a decided bias towards evil, and therefore if you let them choose for themselves, they are...

At the Lord’s Table
SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 2016

The church is one place where rich and poor ought to be able to commune together and love each other. We see that especially in communion. It became the pattern for the new church as they shared all things in common. The church is one place where...

Three Rules for a Happy Marriage
SUNDAY, JANUARY 17, 2016

Of all relationships of life, none ought to be regarded with such reverence, and none taken in hand so cautiously, as the relationship of husband and wife.

Marriage As It Was Meant to Be
SUNDAY, JANUARY 10, 2016

Confident Evangelism
SUNDAY, JANUARY 03, 2016
Posted by: Truth Community Church | more..
Our object is to turn the world upside down; or, in other words, that where sin abounded grace may much more abound. We are aiming at a miracle: it is well to settle that at the commencement. Some brethren think that they ought to lower their note...

Sola Scriptura: The Erosion of Authority
SUNDAY, AUGUST 30, 2015
Posted by: Truth Community Church | more..
Scripture alone is the inerrant rule of the church’s life, but the evangelical church today has separated Scripture from its authoritative function. In practice, the church is guided, far too often, by the culture. Therapeutic technique,... [ ... ]
