Principle 2 (excerpt)

  


I BEGIN TO BELIEVE THAT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST I CAN BE RESTORED TO A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THE FATHER, AND SUBSEQUENT SANITY AND STABILITY IN MY LIFE.

This principle talks about coming to believe that I could have a right relationship with God the Father. As I look at those who have this relationship with God, their lives seem to be so much happier than the lives of those who don’t. The question that I may be asking myself is, "Will God really work in my life if I do believe?" The answer is definitely yes and that He is only waiting for me to give Him the opportunity.

This study will help me to better understand and believe that Jesus has provided me a way to have this relationship with God and all the benefits that result from it.

Isaiah 1:17-20

  1. What will happen when I’m obedient to the Lord? What will happen when I rebel? 
  2. What must I do to be obedient? What am I to learn? (compare with (cf) Psalm 119:9-11, 57-60) 
  3. Do I believe that I can be "white as snow"? How can I know for sure? Should I trust my feelings?

Revelation 3:20

  1. When did I first realize the "knock" of God on my life? 
  2. According to this verse, where is the LORD always standing? 
  3. What is God’s part in this? What is my part in this?

Romans 10:13

  1. What does "call on the name" mean? 
  2. Does God ever reject anyone? (cf John 6:37) Has God ever rejected me? When I felt like He was, were my feelings telling me the truth? Should I trust them? (cf 1 John 3:19-21)

Romans 10:1-4

  1. What does it mean, "they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge"? Give one example. 
  2. How does righteousness come from God? In what everyday ways do I try to establish my own righteousness? What are some of the things I’ve tried in the past? What are some examples of the things I have told myself in order to justify myself or actions?

John 14:1-6

  1. How is believing in God alone different than "believing in God and Jesus"? 
  2. How do I know Jesus is coming back for me according to these verses? 
  3. What is the only way to the Father? Have I truly come to the point of believing Jesus is the only way?

GOD’S PROMISES ARE TRUE!!!
