Nr. 56: Differences in the position and condition

Nr. 56:

Differences in the position and condition

Our position in Christ is always perfect, but our condition is everything from dark to light, from living fully with the Lord to fall into sin.

Eph. 5. 27 How would he set it up for himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, holy and without fault would it be.

1. Joh. b. 2 1. My children, that I write unto you that ye shall not sin. But if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

Our job as believers is always perfect from the day we accept Jesus and his life. Our state is variable, but God is the condition and position more and more to become one. This is called the bible for sanctification, maturation and growth as a believer and a Christian.

We can lose your life in God by beginning to live in sin, or by evidence that we stand for heresy. But we must stop the most up by explaining the difference between the position and condition.

Our position in Christ will not make us Disclaimer people. But our position in Christ should be our goal and desire to always live as believers that our position is.

We can compare it to say that we are an heir, but we have not incorporated and received our heritage yet. This takes up Paul in Galatians. This is from my commentaries Chapter 4 1. Let me explain this. As long as an heir is under age, he stands in the same position as a slave, though he is lord of the property.

Here Paul explains how low an heir stands before he takes the inheritance. Here is a true story. It was a wealthy person was asked how he had become so rich. Yes, he said, Heg selling peanuts. But how did you become so rich, it could not by selling just peanuts? No, that was when I worked I was so rich and I had managed the wealth well.

2 He is under guardians and stewards until the time his father has decided.

Even those who are employed by the company or firm may be of an heir, then they are entrusted with greater responsibilities an heir. But only for a time, until it is determined.

3 So it is with us. When we were minors, we lived as slaves under the ground forces in the world.

The law had it that the more one tried to keep it, the more was the flesh and the world forward. The law in essence created the only hopelessness even more. But God had a solution for all of us, it came when he sent his son. In him is the whole "package". Jesus came down here on this earth and fulfill the law and the prophets. Think it was the only one who managed to fulfill the law. The law became a curse for us humans, it might only sin. Therefore it is written, cursed be he that hangs on a tree. That's what Jesus did for us, he was clean took on all our sin and carried it up on the cross for us that our Father in heaven, condemned sin once for all, by letting his wrath upon His Son Jesus Christ on the cross. Therefore, we have now received the Lord's grace and mercy through faith in Jesus Christ, who fulfilled the law for us and became our righteousness.

4 But in the fullness of time God sent his Son, born of woman, born under the law.

It was not God who came, but the Son of the Father born before anyone else. His most precious property.
• File 2:5-8: "Show the same mind as Christ Jesus! 6 He was God, but did not see it as stolen to be equal with God. He renounced his own, took a slave and becoming like men. In his way he was as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-even death on a cross. "
• Colossians 2:9: "In him the whole fullness of deity bodily presence,"
• Hebrews 2:9: "But we see Jesus, who for a short while was made lower than angels, crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death. How was he by the grace of God taste death for everyone. "

5 He was to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive adoption as sons.

God chose to make me his child. He "adopted me" (so is it really iv 5) not because I was good and deserved it but because he wanted it that way. I have a Father in heaven who loves me even though I always stress to. 1 Corinthians 1:27-28

6 Because you are children, God has given the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit cries "Abba, Father!"

That some receive the Holy Spirit to be a god person is a lie! It says right out that the Holy Spirit is the Father and the Son of common Spirit that we have when we came to faith. Not a God, but part of God that we can get richer and richer, as we walk with Him and open ourselves up to him. Spirit is God's active force teaches Scripture or the power of God, but not a person or God himself. Luke 1 35 The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the highest power will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy Son of God. Here it is verbatim from the Holy Spirit is the supreme power, how then attach when the Holy Spirit features fully as he is the Father's Spirit. Later referred to in Galatians as the Son of Spirit. The Holy Spirit is at. biblical definition of a common spirit of the people the Father and the Son.

7 Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son. And if a son, you are heir of God.

Now we do not need to sell peanuts anymore, we are more of a multi-millionaire lottery millionaires all of us who believe in his son Jesus Christ. Everything that God owns is yours. Therefore, a Christian which he also owns the death when we must let go of everything else.
He owns Jesus and heaven and all God's treasure forever.
Other main thought in Galatians, the distinction between law and gospel of salvation. The law can not save, but it can punish me to seek salvation and savior. The gospel gives me part of God's salvation in Jesus Christ with all the promises and privileges that exist. In the gospel, I am no longer a slave / slave, but I am free and live as children of God.

8 At that time you did not know God, you were slaves to the gods that did not even exist.

Back then you did not know God (that the knowledge they had suppressed) were slaves to the gods (it was this and God's punishment) that really are not gods. " For pagans, this was a bondage 'because the powers in the world "that is, the created world, cf. Colossians. 2, 20
Not least tied the Gentiles their worship of heavenly bodies. Paul calls it being "carried away to the dumb (speechless) idols and dragged hither and thither", 1 Cor. 12, 2
The terms "carried away" and "dragged hither and thither," says that it must be Satan and his demons behind.
It seems that the Christians in Corinth was tempted to participate in pagan sacrifices. It would be pulling the yoked together with unbelievers. How can God's temple, the faithful - and idols reconciled? asks the Apostle in 2 Cor. 6, 16 His conclusion is clear: they can not unite!
"Keep your words (the reason) away from idolatry, my dear," he exhorts in 1 Cor. 10, 4
"- The Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to have fellowship with devils ", v. 20
Deep thinking is all religion that is not subject to God a part of the basic powers of this world. Be it Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism etc.

An heir and an employee may look similar, yes, an employee and servant may seem smarter and better too. But an heir has all rights, it is not an employee and a server.
As heir who we are in Christ, we have all rights and all possibilities.

Rom. 8. 17 But we are children, then we are heirs. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him, we will also share in glory with him.

How much have an heir left in the account? Before he received the inheritance may be so various, but after he received the inheritance, he is just as rich as his father was. So it is with us as children of God, we are now underway.

1. Joh. b. 3 1. Behold, what manner of love the Father has lavished on us, we should be called children of God, and we are there. The world knows us not, because it did not know him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be. We know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as Christ is pure.

Notice that it says in verse 2 that it is not clear yet what we shall be. What we should "get" is that the position and state are one and we become children of God fully, and we become like Jesus, fully.

File. 3. 20 But we have our citizenship in heaven, and from there we expect the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. 21 He will transform our weak and perishable body, so it becomes like the body he is in glory. For he has the power to subdue all.

Soon we will receive the inheritance and we are God's children in full and as rich as our Father. Or just as glorious as his son when we shall meet him (Jesus) and be like him. We will t.o.m. get the same wonderful made flesh as Jesus did and he did after the resurrection. Now while we are on earth, we must strive and work out our salvation in order not to lose it. But to develop, thrive and mature as believers.

We have gone through the following. Our position in Christ is always perfect, but our status as believers is variable if God want it to always go up. Our position and the state should approach each other more and more as time progresses and we grow and mature as believers!
