LESSONS IN DYNAMIC CHRISTIAN LIVING SERIES
Lessons in Dynamic Christian Living is a four-part
series of teachings on how to apply the truths of the Bible to live a dynamic
Christian life. The first volume, The Foundation of God's Word,
undertakes a detailed study of the foundational research principles that
will enable a believer to become more adept at understanding and applying
the keys to how the Word of God interprets itself. The second
volume, Man's Relationship with God, examines the original relationship
man had with God, how it was broken through Adam's disobedience and then
restored through the finished work of Jesus Christ. The third volume,
A New Life in Christ, considers our identification with Christ and
our rights and privileges as sons of God. This study presents truths
on how we can renew our minds, walk by the spirit rather than the flesh,
stand against the wiles of the devil and live together as members in the
Body of Christ. The fourth volume, The Gift and Worship Manifestations
of the Holy Spirit, covers the gift of the holy spirit and how it can
be manifested by each and every believer. This study focuses on the
worship manifestations of speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues,

"A new life is now available to any individual,
a life that lifts him above the mundane and ordinary. Jesus Christ
did not give his life on our behalf so that our lives would be merely ordinary.
God's desire is for us to have lives that are extraordinary. Dynamic
christian living takes one out of the realm of the natural and places him
in the realm of the supernatural. The foundation for living this
dynamic Christian life is the Bible, which is the revealed Word and will
of God. The Bible reveals to us God the Father and Jesus Christ,
the Son of God. God's written Word makes known to us this new way

"How much is God willing to do for you?
He gave His dearly beloved Son as a sacrifice to die in your place.
How much is God able to do for you? He raised Christ from the dead
and set him at His Own right hand in the heavens far above everything else.
the word translated "according to" again sets the standard or measure.
The standard or measure of God's power available to us is the resurrection
and ascension of Christ. What are you facing in life that is too
difficult for God to do? He is both able and willing to do for us
whatever we need in our lives."

"A healthy fruit tree planted in good soil and
receiving sufficient water will produce an abundance of fruit. One
does not have to beat on the tree to make it fruitful. Likewise a
born-again one who walks by the new nature will find the fruit of the nature
evidenced in his life without trying to force himself to be fruitful.
These fruit are the qualities and characteristics of Jesus Christ.
His love becomes evidenced in our lives. His joy and peace become
ours. So do all the other fruit. This fruit is the essence
of a dynamic Christian life."

I Corinthians 12:1
"Both the Word and the spirit bring profit to
us. We must not magnify one at the expense of another. if we
intensely studied God's Word but failed to operate the manifestations of
the spirit, we might be great Bible-heads, scriptural intellectuals with
no power. If we focused on the spirit and neglected the study of
God's Word, we would get out of control and accept things as operations
of the spirit that are counterfeit. Our operation of the manifestations
would get out of bounds. Let's keep the spirit and the Word in proper
balance so that we can receive the greatest profit in our own lives and
help others to receive the greatest profit in their lives."
