The Believer in Jesus Christ

John 11:26 "And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"

1 Thessalonians 2:13 "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."

Walk“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.” (Ephesians 4:1)

Walk Worthy…

We WHO ARE SEATED IN HEAVENLY PLACES are called to a vocation. This VOCATION is “that we should be to the praise of his glory” … “according to the good pleasure of his will.” (Ephesians 1:12a, 5b)

This is our purpose!  This is why we were made… “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” (Vs.6) Amen! Amen! Amen!

Again, Walk Worthy…

As A Walking Example

We are to be an example to other believers in our walk in these ways:

· In Word

· In Conversation

· In Charity

· In Spirit

· In Faith

· In Purity

Paul commanded this to Timothy in I Timothy 4:12. “… but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

In I John 2:6 the Apostle John gave by the Holy Spirit this command: “We are to walk even as he walked.”

Put Off The Old Man

“This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts.” [Ephesians 4:17,22]

A true Christian has two natures inside him. The first nature is the flesh, which is the old self, or the old nature. This is the “you” and “I” before we were born again or QUICKENED. It is the “time spent in the flesh” in the “past of our life” when we lived according “to the lusts of men.” [See I Peter 4:2-3]

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” [Ephesians 2:2-3]
