Adult Christian Behavior

Adult Christian Behavior

2 Cor. 13:5


Paul is finishing his second letter to the Corinthian church. He has spent years teaching and dealing with a young and carnal church. Now he leaves them with some instructions. It is time for them to start acting like adult Christians. There comes a time in our lives where we should put on the big boy pants and start doing some things in this passage.

Examine yourselves

  1. [Jude 3] This “faith” is not salvation but knowing what you should believe!
  2. [Eph. 4:5] One Faith, there is only one-way God wants things done
  3. [Eph. 4:13] unto a “perfect “man, what God has planned for you.
  4. It’s a lifelong process, learning doctrine and judging yourself [1 Cor.11:31-32]
  5. Have you started yet?
  6. When you become an adult you do the examinations, not your parents

Prove your own selves

  1. Try it out, test it! Put it to work. Do it!!!
  2. [Phil. 2:12] work out your own salvation, how to live it!
  3. [James 1:22] Be doers of the word, not hearers only
  4. [James 1:1-8] Benefits of trying your faith
  5. There comes a time that you need to start walking the walk
  6. You have the relationship with God, you are no longer under the umbrella of your parents

Acknowledge who’s in you

  1. [Eph.3:20] the power in us! You are not alone. Do you have a relationship?
  2. [Phil. 2:13] God which worketh in you!
  3. [1 Cor. 3:16] The temple of God
  4. [1Cor. 6:19-20] You are God’s
  5. If you examine yourself, and Prove your own self, and Acknowledge who’s in you, then you would really please God, and that is your purpose in life! [Rev.4:11]
