God’s Secret Way of Making Us Like Jesus Part Two
James Barron October 28th 2012
I. God’s Eternal Purpose is NOT to make us like Jesus. That’s a by-product of His Eternal Purpose!
II. All believers agree that a believer should express Christ-like qualities and attributes, but not all agree as to HOW that actually happens!
III. Two Approaches (Two Trees):
A. Law & Works based and sin focused
B. Grace & Faith based and Christ focused
IV. Does the believer have a perfect new heart?
V. Nourishment for the New Creation:
A. Awareness of our Union with Christ Jesus
B. Focus on Heavenly Realities
C. Emphasis on Believing, not Doing
VI. Beholding Christ in our Inner New Man
VII. Beholding Christ in Creation
VIII. Beholding Christ in the Scriptures
