What I Am Able To Do With Christ In Me

finally-alive-piper1Recently I posted ten biblical truths about  “What I Am Without Christ.”

Now it’s time to follow those up with 11 truths about “What I Am Able To Do With Christ In Me,” all of which are found in 1 John:

Those who are born of God…

1. Keep his commandments [2:3-4; 3:24]
2. Walk as Christ walked [2:5-6]
3. Don’t hate others but love them [2:9; 3:14; 4:7-8; 4:20]
4. Don’t love the world [2:15]
5. Confess the Son and receive (have) him [2:23; 4:15; 5:12]
6. Practice righteousness [2:29]
7. Don’t make a practice of sinning [3:6; 3:9-10; 5:18]
8. Possess the Spirit of God [3:24; 4:13]
9. Listen submissively to the apostolic Word [4:6]
10. Believe that Jesus is the Christ [5:1]
11. Overcome the world [5:4]
