Significant Lessons God had Taught Over a Lifetime of Ministry
In order that I may learn them, the first would be that God’s Word, both His precepts and promises, is meant to be applied to specific situations in our lives. The second is the importance of our union with Christ. The third is that the pursuit of holiness involves our most diligent efforts, but with a dependence on the Holy Spirit to bless those efforts. The fourth is my understanding and acceptance of the doctrine of God’s sovereign election in our salvation. The fifth is that the gospel is not just for unbelievers, rather, all of us who are believers need the gospel every day because we are still practicing sinners. The sixth is an increased understanding of the role of the indwelling Holy Spirit to apply the work of Christ to us and enable us to grow in the Christian Life.
