The Lord has given us His Word in order for us to know with certainty what life with Him is in reality. And with our world so far from God with endless mixed ideas of Who He is, and what His Truth is in all matters. We MUST do a responsible study of the Bible (2 Timothy 2:15-16), relying on the Spirit’s leading (Romans 8:14), in order to learn God’s perspective of life – His Truth!

2 Timothy 3:16-17
16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.


A Must Read!

Why did the Lord create man? According to what the Lord has revealed to us through His Word, the Bible, man was created to have life with Him. That we would have a full, secure and purposeful life with our Creator. And that the Lord created us to NEED Him in order to have a full, secure and purposeful life. So that those who CHOOSE life WITH Him, would learn to know Him, and therefore love Him with all of their being. And motivated by love, glorify Him in all that they do.

The other vital goal of these short studies is to guide the thorough, ‘honest with God’, student of the Scriptures, to understand how the Lord will lead and help each person who co-operates with Him, to fulfil their God given purpose. Life is so fulfilling and excitingly purposeful when we know what the Lord Himself is attempting to achieve in us! AS WELL as knowing, through the Scriptures, exactly how He goes about attempting to achieve His purposes in us.

With this knowledge from His Word we are informed how we may co-operate with Him to achieve His glorious purpose for ourselves. As well as, be able to know how not to prevent Him from leading us into such a glorious spiritual life with Him, through careless, ignorance! But rather how to work with Him!

The Spiritual Life; Being Led By The Spirit; walking after the Spirit; walking after the flesh; assurance of salvation

The Lord guide you into the truth, and reality of the spiritual life that He offers to all of us. Though sadly, because of rebellion, and ignorance on man’s part, the Lord only achieves His purposes in a small number of people. The Lord help you to be one of them by learning to understand just how the ‘spiritual life’ through Christ works!
