Analyzing The Christian Life & Strengthening Personal Weaknesses

This article will help Christians analyze their spiritual growth in Christ. It will also help Christians who may be struggling with an aspect(s) of their Christian Walk (Hebrews 4:11-12).

I) Let's Prayerfully Analyze The Beginning Of One's Christian Walk:

1) They Hear Or Learn God's Gospel From Some Source (John 3:1-16; Matthew 4:17)

The Holy Spirit is the Major Person in bringing hearers to Jesus Christ. The hearers will decide to learn more (John 14:26; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

2) The Hearer Repents Of Their Sins, Ask Jesus Christ To Be Their Lord & Savior And Ask God's Holy Spirit To Fill Them (Romans 10:1-13)

When The Holy Ghost Convicts The Hearer Of Their Sin & The Need For Jesus Christ As Their Lord & Savior The Hearer Will Pray Such A Prayer As This: "Father God I Confess My Sins Against You And Am Sorry For My Sins. I Repent Of My Sins Against You. I Ask That Your Son Jesus Christ Be My Lord And Savior. Please Send Your Holy Spirit To Help Me To Serve You. I Ask In Jesus' Name. Amen (Romans 10:1-13; Acts 2:1-30)."

3) At The Moment The "Sinner's Prayer" Is Completed God Baptizes That New Christian With God's Holy Ghost. That New Christian Is Then "Born Again" (Acts 2:1-30; John 3:1-16).

It Does Not Matter Whether The New Christian "Feels" The Holy Spirit Baptize Them Or Not. The Christian Walk Is Solely About God's Faithfulness To His Promises. God Is A Loving Spirit & Is Truth. Thus The Christian Walk Is Not About Our Personal Feelings Or Things In This Life (Hebrews 13:5-6; 1 John 4:8; John 3:16; John 4:24).

4) The New Christian Must Now Ask God's Holy Spirit To Help Strip Off Their Worldly (Earthly, Sinful) Ways And Replace Them With The Things Of The Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:1-26)


II) Let's Now Prayerfully Examine What It Means To "Walk" In The Spirit

(Galatians 5:15-26)


5) You Must Ask God's Holy Spirit To Remove Your Sinful Thoughts, Ways & Tendancies (Romans 12:1-12; Galatians 5:1-26; 1 Corinthians 6:9013).

6) You Must Ask God's Holy Spirit To Renew Your Human Mind To The Mind Of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:1-12; Philippians 2:1-12; 4 Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, John & The New Testament)

Prayerfully Reading God's Holy Bible Is Essential To Spiritual Growth. Reading The Old Testament Is Important But Not As Important As Spiritually Understanding & Accepting The New Testament (Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20; 2 Corinthians 3:6; Hebrews 9:15; Hebrews 4:11-12; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

7) You Must Cast Down Any Thing That Opposes Or Disagrees With God's Holy Word (2 Corinthians 10:1-12; John 17:14-16; John 16:11, 20, 33; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Luke 4:5-6; 1 John 2:15-17; Matthew 6:24; Luke 16:13).

8) You Must Not Worry. You Must Trust In God's Biblical Word (Promises) And His Love For You. Take All Your Concerns To The Lord In Godly Thanks. God Will Give You His "Peace Of God" (Philippians 4:6-8; Matthew 6:25-34; Proverbs 3:5-7; Isaiah 26:3; Proverbs 29:25; Psalm 23:1-6; Matthew 14:20-34; Psalm 55:22; Matthew 11:28-30).

9) You Must Only Think On What The Holy Spirit Tells You To Think On. These "Spirit" Things Are: Truth, Honesty, Just, Pure, Lovely, Good Report(s), Virtue, Praise (Philippians 4:6-8).

10) Ask God's Holy Spirit To Help You Cultivate Fruit Of The Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance (Galatians 5:22-23).

11) Now Pray And Read Galatians 5:23- The Spirit Ends Or Removes The Law(s) Of Moses (The Letter Of The Law) (Romans 7:6; Romans 10:4; Matthew 5:15-17).

12) Ask The Holy Spirit To Help You Put On The Whole Armour Of God. With This Armour On And Walking In The Holy Spirit You Can Defeat Satan And This Ungodly World. The Whole Armour Of God Is: Loins Girt With Truth, Breastplate Of Righteousness, Feet Shod With The Preparation Of The Gospel Of Peace, Shield Of Faith, Helmet Of Salvation, Sword Of God's Spirit (Holy Bible-The Word), Praying For Yourself, Anything & Any One (Ephesians 6:10-18; Psalm 55:22; Matthew 11:28-30; Proverbs 3:5-7; Matthew 6:25-34).

13) When You Become A "Born Again" Christian God Gives You Gifts (John 3:1-14; John 14:26; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Acts 2:1-30; Acts 2:1-30; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31). These Gifts Are God's: wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, tongues, interpretation of tongues;


III) Questions To Prayerfully Ask Yourself Whenever You Feel "Tried" In Your Spiritual Walk

A) Did I Confess My Sins To God, Ask For Forgivenss, Accept Jesus As Lord (God) And Savior (Deliverer, Provider) & Request God To Baptize (Fill) Me With The Holy Spirit?

B) Am I Allowing God's Holy Spirit To Remove All The Ways Of This World Out In My Life?

C) Am I Renewing (Regenerating) My Total Self With The Things Of God's Spirit?

D) Am I Casting Down The Things Of Satan's World Out Of My Life?

E) Have I Over Come Undue Worrying About Life Concerns, Or Am I Still Perplexed About Daily Concerns?

F) Am I Seeking God's Holy Spirit To Cultivate Spiritual Fruits In My Total Self?

G) Do I Thoroughly Accept That God's Grace Through Jesus' Blood Ends All Pharisaic Laws & Curses (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:1-13; Matthew 16:11-20; Matthew 23:1-39; Ephesians 2:5-8)?

H) Am I Seeking The Holy Spirit To Help Me Put On The Whole Armor Of God?

I) Am I Seeking God's Holy Spirit To Help Me Develop My Spiritual Gifts?


Even The Most Spiritually Mature Christians Will Have Trials In This Life (Job 1:1-20; Job 2:1-12; Matthew 4:1-11).

Yet If We Don't Submit To The Holy Spirit And Grow In Being "Born Again" We Will Continue To Be Over Whelmed By Satan's World.

May We All Repent, Seek God And Grow In His Holy Spirit.

Praise God.
