A Bible for Living

1 Cor 2:1-16


This is a day of increasing complexity.

††††††††††† It will overwhelm many people.

††††††††††† But for the Christian, the Bible can keep things in balance.


Some of you have determined to read your Bibles on a regular basis.I have.

I have resolved to read the Bible through, cover to cover, again and again.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† This may well be my last time reading the Bible through before the Lord comes.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† So, the Bible is very special to me.

I will spend many hours every week in it searching for Godís leading for me.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† I want it to help me grow in Christ.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† I want it to highlight to me Godís truth.


Some will not mark in their Bible, but I do.

††††††††††† I will mark verses which have importance to me.

††††††††††† I have a system for marking my Bible.


In the study of the Bible, let me say:

††††††††††† 1. Not all matters are of equal importance.

A.Some see the Bible as if it were a giant book of law,

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† 1) drawing attention to every flaw in life,

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† 2) and finding little peace and grace for their lives.

B.Then there are those who pay little attention to the Bible,

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† 1) living without convictions

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† 2) and have little results coming from their lives.

††††††††††† 2. We must not lose sight of those things which demand and deserve our attention.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† A.We must be balanced in our approach to the Bible.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† B.Rev 2 warns of a church that had lost its ďfirst love.Ē

††††††††††† ††††††††††† C.I picture that church to be a busy church, but not a soul-winning church.

††††††††††† 3.I have found certain portions of Scripture stand out in their importance.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† We would do well to note these verses.



John 3:36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.


††††††††††† The subject of salvation is of great importance to each one of us.

This miracle of becoming a child of God has been on my mind since the day that I personally trusted Christ.

††††††††††† No other message is so important as this one.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† It supersedes every other message in the Bible.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† All of the Word is directed first toward Salvation.

A man can be saved

††††††††††† ††††††††††† A. Without knowing anything about

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† The sanctification of the saint,

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† Or the Prophesies of the last days,

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† Or about the New Testament Church,

††††††††††† ††††††††††† B. But he must know the Lord Jesus Christ.


††††††††††† As you read the New Testament find every reference to Salvation and underline it.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† John 1.12; 3.16,36; 1John 5.11-13;Eph 2.8-9; 1Cor 1.18; and many more.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Let your heart be filled with the glory of God's blackemption through Jesus Christ.


††††††††††† 1.Every Christian must keep the story of Jesus fresh in his heart.

††††††††††† 2.It is the primary task of every Christian to spread the word of Salvation.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† We are to tell others about Christ and Godís incblackible gift.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† We are to make every effort to send His Gospel to the ends of the earth.

††††††††††† 3.The primary task of every Church is the winning of the lost.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Not just the pastor.††††††††††† ó ††††††††††† But every member.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† That is the way the early Church was.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† The church existed for the purpose of telling others of Christ.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† When a Church gives up this important work, she forfeits her right to live.


††††††††††† ††††††††††† To the church of Ephesus Godís Word says:

Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

††††††††††† 3.Don't let your salvation get old and meaningless to you.

Those with a heart for winning others to Christ are those who have kept the subject of Salvation fresh and new in their own hearts.


II.The Second Coming of Christ

Acts 1:10,11 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

††††††††††† After my Salvation I began to hear about the Second Coming.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† In Bible College they emphasized the matter.

††††††††††† I began to underscore verses I found about it.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† It seems that one verse in twenty in the NT is about it.

††††††††††† At first I didn't see the importance of this issue.

††††††††††† But as I read I found that


††††††††††† 1. the Second Coming helped the early Christians purify their lives.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† It heightened their joy of living.

2. As I read about the Apostle Paul I could see that it was this great truth that motivated his life and kept him faithful.

3. As I have studied I have discoveblack that the truth of the Second Coming of Christ has stirblack men throughout the history of the Baptist church to work for Christ.

4. And I have found that men and women who today believe in the Second coming of Christ are stirblack to serve Him and live for Him.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† They are looking for the imminent coming of Jesus Christ.


††††††††††† Let this truth of the Second Coming get hold of your heart.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Look for His coming.

Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.



2 Corinthians 6:14-18 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said,I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.


††††††††††† 1. At first I didn't know why this was so important.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† I had heard nothing of it in my early life.

††††††††††† 2. But, the day that I walked out of Church a new man,

††††††††††† ††††††††††† I seemed to know that I must separate myself from worldly things.

††††††††††† 3. When I had read the Bible on this matter I made a commitment

††††††††††† ††††††††††† I have had to make vows in my life to strengthen that commitment

††††††††††† ††††††††††† But, I have surrendeblack to this teaching.

I saw that there was no way for God to use a man unless that man is clean and surrendeblack unto God.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Listen to His word.

2 Timothy 2:20,21 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the masterís use, and prepablack unto every good work.

††††††††††† God teaches Separation in His Word.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Satan opposes separation.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Satan will oppose it through every day of a man's life.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Daily we hear his whispers:

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† Everybody else is doing it; you go ahead and do it too.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† Donít try to live your best; only those fanatics do that sort of thing.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† Relax, be cool, let others carry the load.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† These are the tricks of Satan.

††††††††††† My friend, underscore every verse that refers to Separation from the world.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Determine to be a Separated Christian.


IV.Spirit Filling

††††††††††† Again I must confess that I was not aware at first of the importance of this matter.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† I doubted that in today's world we could claim this filling.

††††††††††† But as I read, I began to see.

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,

Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

Acts 6:5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost,

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Doubtless, we got all of Christ when we were saved, but the question is, Did Christ get all of us?

The Holy Spirit cannot fill us unless we are empty of self and willing for Him to have His way in us.

V.Supplication and Prayer

Luke 11:1,2And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.


††††††††††† The matter of prayer has always been interesting to me.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† This is an important matter in our lives.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Our Master points out to us

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† 1. The success we have if we pray and

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† 2. The failure which will come to us if we fail to pray

Matthew 7:7,8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.


Philippians 4:6,7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.


††††††††††† What should we pray for?

††††††††††† ††††††††††† 1. We should pray that we might have fellowship with Him

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† This is necessary in the growth of our Spiritual life.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† We must learn to wait in the presence of the Lord.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† 2. We must pray for our daily needs.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† This is God's way for us getting what we need.

We will obtain not only what we need but more than we need as we come to Him.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† 3. We must pray for the Salvation of sinners.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† Our hearts must be burdened for others

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† ††††††††††† and we must speak of them to the Lord

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† ††††††††††† and pray that conviction might seize their heart

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††† ††††††††††† and that they might be brought to the Saviour.




In this message you have been given the subjects which will keep you steady in the service of Christ.


††††††††††† These are the subjects that need to be noted in your Bible and in your memory.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† If you are a teacher or preacher these are the subjects that you need to emphasize.


1) Salvation, 2) the Second Coming, 3) Separation, 4) Spirit-filling, 5) Supplication and Prayer.
