Living by Grace

The starting point in this ministry is the life-changing book, Our Oneness With Christ.  This is a study in living by grace through faith. Not simply another book on the theme of "union with Christ" - it probes into new, fresh areas of thought and understanding of this grand theme. The basic sin problem is presented as one of a "know-it-all attitude." Coming to an understanding of our basic sin problem is one of the vital keys to a victorious Christian life!

"Living By Grace" draws upon the five imperatives (or 5 commands) listed in Romans 6:11-13.

Believe      Romans 6:11  -  Reckon (believe) yourselves to be dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Choose      Romans 6:12  -  Do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey it in its lust.

Choose      Romans 6:13a  -  Do not present your members (body) as instruments of  unrighteousness to sin.

Choose & Believe      Romans 6:13b  -  Present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead.

Choose      Romans 6:13c  -  (Present) your members (body) as instruments of righteousness to God.

WE BELIEVE, WE SPEAK

And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed and therefore I spoke," we also believe and therefore speak.   2 Corinthians 4:13

Paul is quoting Psalm 116:10, which reads, “I believed, therefore I spoke, I am greatly afflicted.” Evidently, the Psalmist is saying that he believes in the love and sufficiency of God and therefore he prayed.

 

Paul quotes the psalm in the context of a passage where he speaks about God’s deliverance to him in times of certain defeat and about God resurrecting believers from the dead. His speaking is not in prayer but as a testimony to others about God’s goodness and power.

 

Most believers speak to God in their distress and will continue to do so, as the Psalmist did. This is what we should all do.

 

Like Paul, some believers speak to others about the victories of God in their times of need and about their certainty of their resurrection from the dead. This also is what all believers should do.

 

It is a joy when asking a stranger we pass on the street how he is and he responds with, “Blessed.” We know what he means. He is testifying about the blessings of God. We are blessed when someone explains in detail a blessing he has received from God. They believed and spoke.

 

We are not bragging on ourselves when we tell others about our experiences of God blessing us out of His goodness and power. God often uses our testimonies to build faith in others.

 

As we walk in the Spirit, He will tell us when to “speak” because “we believe.”

Living the New Covenant

God spoke through Moses to tell the Israelites He would enter into a covenant with them. This was the First Covenant. At the first Lord's Supper, Jesus said  the cup was His Blood of the New Covenant. In Living the New Covenant, David Kuykendall examines the writings of Paul and the author of Hebrews to understand what these two covenants represent and how they affect the lives of Christians.
