Salvation basics are:
Recognition of sin. Admit that you are a sinner. …
The wages of sin is death. …
Believe God and receive Him by grace through faith. Repent. …
Confession of sin and forgiveness. …
And receive Jesus with a prayer…I know that I am a sinner, ask for forgiveness, believe Jesus died for your sins and rose from the dead. Turn from sin and Jesus comes into your heart and life. You learn to trust and follow Him as your Lord and Savior.
Growth takes place
Deny your old ways/ sin
“When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”
If before salvation we recognized we were in sin, why as a believer do we try to let it back in?
Just because you believe a truth doesn’t guarantee that you possess it. In Galatians Paul is talking to believers and explaining the fruit that results from a person rooted in the spirit. Don’t get caught up in just attending church. We should be growing in the understanding of who Christ is and who we are in Him separating ourselves from the things of the world.
When you allow God to work and you and change you and who he’s called you to be you begin to become rooted in the word of God. Let me explain the Scripture says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. What’s deep down in your heart when something bad happens, you stomped your toe, somebody attacks you , what comes out your mouth at that moment is what’s in your heart ❤️
Now ask yourself do I need to be more rooted in the things of God? Most likely the answer for all of us is yes.
If our relationship with God is robotic or non existent, our bond of love with others will be weak. When love is shallow, all it takes is something trivial as a disagreement to divide us.Francis Chan
When we stop growing in Christ, we stop growing in love for God and each other.
