Portraits of the Christian Life

The Apostle Paul provides four portraits of the Christian life to help his young disciple know what this courageous life of power under control looks like. The Teacher, The Good Soldier, The Athlete, and The Hardworking Farmer.

Riches in Christ are Meant to be Shared

Christians can ignore the incredible riches of the spiritual life we are given by God and never use them for purposes God intended. Rather than embrace the goodness of God in Christ, they heap up for themselves transcendent experiences, clever teachings, gregarious mentors cluttering an authentic spiritual experience with manmade abundance. This is a waste of both our position in Christ, and the richness of His grace and mercy.
