Can We Win People For Christ?

Most of the professing Christian world believes that it is the duty of believers to "win people for Christ," a phrase that has been drawn from the apostle Paul's words in II Corinthians 9:19-22. David Grabbe argues that, contrary to majority opinion, this passage proclaims nothing of the sort if seen in the context of the whole counsel of God, particularly that of God's prerogative to call people to Him.

The True Savior of the World!

Martin Collins, citing several blasphemous newspaper headlines praising various world leaders for being "the savior of the world," contrasts these pretenders to the real Savior of the World. Because He experienced the suffering of the human being, He is able to be a perfect High Priest for us, sympathizing and empathizing with our weaknesses. God the Father sent Jesus as the Savior of the World, to heal the sick, to comfort the broken-hearted, and to liberate the captives, suggesting the end-time re-gathering of Israel's captives. Jesus Christ kept God's Law perfectly, fulfilling the law perfectly in order that He could make a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins, enabling the forgiveness of our sins (the pollution, guilt, and penalty of our sins) and our sanctification, perfection, and purification, continually making intercession for us as High Priest, conforming our physical bodies to His glorious spiritual body.

New Covenant Priesthood (Part 5)

John Ritenbaugh reiterates that humility is not an obsequious demonstration of low self esteem, but instead it is a proper estimate of our relationship to God, which is a choice to act and behave as a servant or slave. If we would follow Christ's example of humility, we would have automatic unity. We need to have both the inclination and the follow-through act of humility and lowliness of mind. We have to cultivate the same attitude as our Elder Brother as He esteemed others above Himself. Faith, praise, gratitude, thanksgiving, and humility all work together at building character. Perseverance in prayer and faithfulness causes our faith to increase and rescues us from pernicious worldliness.
