Three Vital Aspects Of Christian Life

Leave a comment

Balanced Christian teaching should invoke three areas, respecting their relative order, while maintaining the necessity of all three to be active.
The three are: what Jesus has done for us and to us; what Jesus enables and empowers us to do; and what we must do as our response to his work for us and in us in order to grow more like him.
If these three are all held at once licence, moralistic therapeutic deism, and legalism can be guarded against.
It also helps us ground responses to situations in life as questions that ask us how our response shows increasing trust in Jesus, greater dependence upon Jesus, and growing likeness to Jesus.
That’s the eternal dimension to every situation faced in this life.
