What the Bible Says about Christian Life
To enter the Kingdom of God, one must be born again of the Water and the Spirit (John 3:3-5; Acts 2:1-4, 38; 10:44-48; 19:1-6). The three elements of the New Birth are 1) Repentance, 2) Baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus and 3) Being filled with the Holy Spirit which is evidenced by speaking with tongues. This New Birth should be renewed regularly in the Christian’s life (Titus 3:5; Ephesians 5:18).
It is the Christian’s responsibility to strive to live a life that is pleasing to Jesus (I Timothy 2:4). This involves glorifying Him in your body and in your spirit (I Cor 6:20). Our inward man should be renewed daily (II Corinthians 4:16; Colossians 3:10). The outward man should also reflect the favor of God (Philippians 1:20; I Peter 2:15-16; James 3:13; II Peter 3:11).
Our relationship to our fellowman is of vital importance (Mark 12:28-31; I Thessalonians 3:12; I Peter 1:22).
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: AND THE LIFE WHICH I NOW LIVE IN THE FLESH I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
