Overview of Christian Life

Description of Overview Diagram

1Before Christ – Lost, hopeless, and living independent of  God.

2Unbelievers – will be judged and separated from God for eternity.

3The Cross – (Jesus said) “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who  hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal  life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. (John 5:24)

4Discipleship – the beginning phase of a new life with God.

5Goal - God wants to mold you into a mature Christian.

6My Building Options – Each Christian has daily choices as  to how he/she will build on the Foundation, Jesus Christ. If  I allow the Holy Spirit to manage my resources (time,  energy, possessions), He will reward me eternally

7Rewards Ceremony – Commonly called the Judgment Seat  of Christ, at which time each believer will individually  appear before Jesus Christ to be rewarded for what he/she  has allowed the Holy Spirit to do through their life while  living here on earth. There should be no fear of  punishment at this event, although the disciple needs to be  aware of the potential for loss of eternal rewards, since all  that is wood, hay and stubble will be turned into worthless  ashes. It is important to note that no unbeliever will be  present at this event.

There is more to your Christian life than you might think

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, …

2 Corinthians 5:10

Your New Life – The event of salvation is the entrance into a  new life with God, prepared by Him to completely meet your  every need, as you fit into His design. Now as a Christian, you  will want to fit into God’s plan for your time here on earth, which  is but a small part of His eternal plan for you.

The Bible says that you are as a spiritual baby, needing a  spiritual parent who will help you to understand the basic  spiritual concepts of your new relationship with God. As you  begin attending church services, and hopefully join a Bible study  group, ask the Lord to lead you to someone who is willing to  spend regular individual time with you for at least the next three  months or so to help you in your new spiritual walk with the Lord.

If you cannot find another believer to personally mentor you, please feel free to contact us as we may be able to put you into  contact with someone who is available.
