Cross to the Crown #7

Life is a pilgrimage (Psa 84:5-9). God uses our bad situations to be a blessing to others "strength to strength"; Rom 1:17- "faith to faith"; 2Co 3:18 - "glory to glory". 5 mountain peaks of faith: (1) Hebrew "AMEN" - beginning faith - means to "lean on a staff". (2) BATACH - Pro 3:5-6 - faith as a wrestling match - cast your cares on the Lord (1Pe 5:7). (3) CHASAH (Psa 57:1, Heb 6:18, Psa 84:9) - to find a safe refuge. (4) YACHAL - applying dressing to a wound (Job 13:15). (5). QAWAH (Isa 40:31) - small threads woven into a strong unbreakable rope (Ecc 9:4). Harold Gatty, famous navigator, taught that in navigating you have to know where you are to get where you're going. If you have a map and compass internally, you would be able to orient to any terrain in front of you. The Bible is our map; the Holy Spirit is the compass. Life of faith: (1) childlike belief and trust in God's Word (Rom 10:17); (2) faith focuses on the invisible things of God's Word (2Co 5:7); (3) faith is the only way to please Him (Heb 11:6); (4) fath is a one word summary (Hab 2:4, Rom 1:17, Gal 3:11, Heb 10:38); (5) faith transfers Word of God to life experience through love (Gal 5:6). (6) everything not of faith is sin (Rom 14:23). (7) after salvation is "faith plus works" (Eph 2:10).

From Series: "The Cross to the Crown"

To get from 'the cross to the crown' we need to make decisions to live a life of spiritual dynamics using God's provisions -- His Word and Spirit. This series given in early 2006 before Gene moved back to the States outlines ten aspects of our discipleship.
