Lesson Four



Answer Key:


1.   Romans 12:2 instructs us that as Christians, we are not to live as the unsaved do in this world, that we are not to allow the worlds standards to be our standards, but, rather, that by allowing the Holy Spirit by the Word of God to transform our thinking and lifestyles. We become examples of what Christians ought to be, so that we can properly serve the Lord where-ever He may place us.


2.   2 Corinthians 5:17 assures us that those who have been Born Again have become, and are consistently becoming new creatures and as this process of sanctification takes place in our lives, everything in our life changes so that we no longer choose to do those sinful activities that we once loved doing. But rather, we now choose to live an entirely different lifestyle - one that is pleasing to God.


3.   I Corinthians 6:19 assures us that as a purchased possession by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, our bodies are now a dwelling place of the Holy Spirit of God. We are now the property of the Lord God, indwelt by the Holy Spirit who can and will empower us to live Godly, Holy lives as we yield to His divine influence in our lives.


4.   Romans 6:13 informs us that we are not to allow the enemy, Satan to utilize our bodily members, or mind in thoughts and actions that are sinful. Rather, we are to yield ourselves to God as those who have been brought to life in Jesus Christ, from the deadness of our past lifestyle of sin, and therefore, to yield our minds and bodily members to our Heavenly Father for His use in our lives and His Kingdom.


5.   Philippians 2:5 instructs us that we are to allow the Holy Spirit to develop the Amind of Christ in us, which, when allowed to happen, will then assist us in submitting ourselves to the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ in submission to the will of our Heavenly Father in all things.


6.   2 Corinthians 10:5, tells the believer, to take control of all their thinking in such a way as to destroy every mental consideration or thought that in any way opposes the work of Christ in us as believers, thereby bringing our entire thought life into submission and into obedience to the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ in our lives. This can only be done by the enablement and empowerment of the Holy Spirit as we submit and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ!
