Absolute Dependence On What God Has Done.

Scripture text: 
"THEREFORE leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection" - Hebrew 6:1
The Hundred Percent Christian (1).

I WELCOME you to another winning Day. You were born to win daily, "But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day" - Prov. 4:18 KJV. 

Let us get to the topic of the day: The hundred percent Christian, I know a lot of you reading this might have painted a picture already in their minds, probably of a zero-tolerance for sin or error believer, or a perfect and righteous saint.

It's okay because we can grow into that dimension in Christ, through the ministry and help of the Holy Spirit;

 "for with God, nothing is impossible" but it is not really about that yet, recall our scripture text, it says, "Let us go on unto perfection"  you ain't already it's a place to journey to.

So let go of perfection, for now, you should also acquaint yourself with the fact that Spiritual growth is a process that comes in stages. 

now, what is the one hundred percent Christian? There are things involved in being a one hundred percent Christian, and these of course would help make you a wonderful follower of Jesus.

 What does it involve:

1. Absolute Dependence On What God Has Done.

Dependence on what God has equals salvation. God sent His only begotten son into this world to make provisions for your salvation. 

There is nowhere in the Bible that God asked the man to work for his own salvation... Philippians 2:12 says, 

". . .work out your own salvation..." 

This means to carry it to its ultimate, go as far as you can with it, but it has nothing with working for salvation.

Your salvation was worked out in Christ. Men are saved through faith, and this faith has to be in the finished work of Jesus Christ and what God has done. 

The thing is that all men are sinners. We are sinners by virtue of our birth; we are born sinners, Psalm 51:5 David said, 

"Behold, I was shaped in iniquity: and in sin did my mother conceive me".

We sin because we are sinners. Sin is what we are, and sin is the thing we commit. 

A man is not a sinner because he sins, he sins because he is a sinner. 

So, being saved involves more than quitting our sinning; it is not enough, we must be transformed by the renewing of our minds, and not be conformed to the world.

Being saved isn't quitting a lot of bad habits that may result from our salvation, that is not salvation, that's reformation. Being saved is God doing something for us on the inside. 2Peter 1: 4 said, 

"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature."

God purposes to change the way we live by giving us a new nature. He puts a divine nature in us, and a new desire comes as a result, (see Phil. 2:13)

You know our God, is a God of Holiness, righteousness, and Justice. God said, "The wages of sin is death." 

The final penalty is the lake of fire, the second death. So, He took all our sin, put it over on Jesus, and then punished Jesus in our place, to pay for what we owe as sinners.

 2 Cor.5:21 says, "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." 

Now you are getting the lines; that God took Jesus and made him be the guilty sinner in our place. He took all our guilt and transferred it to Jesus. 

1peter 2:24 also says, "who his own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree"
What did God do for us, you might still be asking. 

He put all our sins over on Jesus and then treated Jesus like He would have treated the dirty, guilty sinner. 

He turned His back on His own son while His son died on the cross. God was satisfied with the sacrifice, He simply accepted the payment Jesus made for our sins.

So, a hundred percent Christian totally depends on what God has done. If you are depending on anything other than the sacrificial death of Christ for your salvation, then you are not saved. 

This is Biblical, John 3:18 " . . .he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God"

In Christ we live, move and have our being. To live life outside Christ is a life filled with crisis, life in him is glorious and eternal.


Dear Lord, I am forever thankful for what you did to set me free from the hold of iniquity, I will always follow and depend on your word forever.


Eph. 2: 8-9, Phil. 2:12-13, Rom. 1:16


"Saying with a loud voice, worthy is the lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing."- Rev. 5:12KJV


"You will find all true theology summed up in these two short sentences: Salvation is all of the grace of God. Damnation is all of the will of man."


God's word is forever, it's eternal and infallible. What you should do is ask for His guide to search out, receive, believe, and depend on His word. Also daily pray and ask Him for divine insight.
