Our faith is estimated very highly by God. He says that without it we cannot please Him. Our faith cannot be separated from its object. We must look to Christ, as in the account of the snake on the pole.
What if Jesus really meant every word He said? Are you applying the Word of God to your life, or are you applying your life to the Word of God? Dean explains how our lives can be a living symphony of His glory.
Bro. Dean warns against the theological Christianity that is so prevelant in our modern time. Christianity is a life, not just a set of doctrines. True faith will produce works. Has your faith affected every area of your life?
Have you surrendered to Christ, but held back a little? Is there a small sin at the bottom of your heart that you are unwilling to confess? Sin can never be justified. We can hide nothing from God. Freedom is only found in forsaking all sin for Christ.
