THE THRILL OF BEING A REAL CHRISTIAN
In this lesson you will learn what a real Christian is and what a real Christian is to do in his or her daily life.
I- what is a real Christian?
A real Christian is a believer in Jesus Christ, in His death, burial and resurrection, who has received the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit and then moves by the power of the Holy Spirit to begin to do the things Jesus said to do. A real Christian does the "stuff."
II- What a real Christian will do.
A Mark 16:15 - "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
B Second Timothy 1:7 - "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." God gives you power to get the job done, the love to motivate you, and a soundness of mind to know what to do and what to say at the right time in each place you go.
III -Five supernatural signs that follow believers -
An In His name you will cast out devils.
B You will speak with new tongues - referred to five times in the book of Acts.
C Take up serpents - "Serpent" represents Satan. When you go places, God will give you a divine communication system, a divine power to drive demons out of people, and also a divine authority to remove the power of Satan from regions.
D If you drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt you - this means divine protection.
E You will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.
If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?
