Shalom beloved brother or sister in Christ. I believe that you are here because you have just given your life to Christ or that you want to revisit the foundational teachings and studies about what it means to be born again. You have done right, and I believe that God has ordained this series of studies to further strengthen your foundation as a believer in Christ.
The foundation of every child of God is greatly paramount to what such a life will become in life. Unless the issue is addressed, many believers will continue to live in mediocrity and some others will continue to live defeated lives. The heavenly resources that has been made available to such as are born into the kingdom of heaven will continue to be underused. There are two scriptures that addressed the importance of this fact in the life of every child of God.
The first is Psalm 11:3
If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Notice that the scripture says foundations not foundation as in singular. The foundations here are those components that will make the righteous man to stand firm in the only sure foundation , Christ. Though I am not going to be making an exposition on this verse of the scripture, but it shows that a correctly laid foundation has capacity to be destroyed, let alone a foundation that was or is not correctly laid. So, this raises a matter of concern to me. I am writing this series of teachings not as though I have apprehended, but this one thing I do; I revisit these series of foundational teachings to enable me continue standing firm in the Lord. As a matter of fact, I take delight in teaching these foundational topics to further strengthen my own foundation. This is because of the understanding I have that even the righteous man has not much to do if his foundation of faith has been tampered with.
For this course, I charge you not to take this series of teachings as mere foundational teachings. Rather, make sure you follow the studies judiciously. Do not claim to have known everything. I don’t either. Please be free to ask any question no matter how foolish it might seem to you. Do not assume anything, be sure about everything.
The second scripture that raises issue of urgent concern to me is Galatians 4: 1-2.
Now I say, that a heir, as long as he is a child differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
As long as in this passage is an open time frame that is only determined by the child of God in question. If you look at the passage in depth, you will notice that there is no way of escape. You must grow past childhood if you must begin to enjoy son ship privileges. And the only way to grow correctly is trough the word of God. Therefore, if you have given your life to Jesus Christ, please desire and crave to be taught. Know that the word of God is the only authentic instrument that can guarantee your spiritual growth. This is very vital if you will breakthrough from slavery mentality. You must need find rest for your soul and that can only be possible through what you have learnt. Therefore, it is quit pertinent that you avail yourself the time to be taught the word of God. We have decided to put up these follow-up teachings by way of writing, but that should not replace having an elder to sit over you in discipleship as the Lord leads. Nothing separates a man from the life of slavery to Sonship except the word of God.
