A person who is shaped by the gospel understands:
God’s Role in salvation
Humanity’s response to God’s salvation
God’s Word regarding salvation
Humanity’s role in evangelism
God’s role in evangelism
When we participate in Communion we... - admit and confess our need for a Savior, and our need to be forgiven.- proclaim to ourselves and to others, that Jesus is our Savior, and the One whom
we have trusted for salvation.- are
reminded that we are loved by God, and that we are part of His family forever.- remember that we are all united with one another because of our faith in Jesus,
and so we are family members as well.- also nourished spiritually by Christ. We are
encouraged in our faith. We are strengthened in our resolve to live and love
boldly, just as we have been loved boldly.
1. We must not let a concession because of sin become permission to sin.2. We must always live in light of God's standard and not our own.3. When we fail to reach God's standard we must repent, receive, and resume.
Three things from these verses:1. A follower of Christ should have a spiritual hunger that outweighs their physical hunger. 2. God is revealed through compassionate giving.3. Christ is patient when his followers struggle to trust him.
