Discipleship Sovereignty

God is Sovereign

307307624_d174b44054[1] The name Yehovah (I AM that I AM) is the one God chose to distinguish Him from all His creation; the fact that He is self-existent, timeless, unchanging, and thus the absolute authority and potentate set him apart. The one element necessary for us to participate in this glorious reality is faith.

You believe God is sovereign when:

· It is not necessary to take matters into your own hands, but can entrust any outcome to Him.

· Living a holy life is important to your own hurt.

· Getting the Gospel message right is what matters, out of obedience to His word. 1Timothy 4:6

· Living by the bible is not pretentious but serious business.

· Life is not about fulfilling all your personal desires but His.

You believe God is sovereign when:

· You recognize He has a calling on your life, and that call includes career, marriage partner, and place of residence, standard of living, church you attend, the way you speak, dress, and react to difficult circumstances.

· You believe in a life after this one, and so much so, you are willing to suffer in this one.

· Ministry is not according to personal preference, the culture, or times in which you live, but the standard set in the Bible alone.

· Prayer is so important that you set apart a portion of your day to meet with the only one that can make a difference – in you and everyone around you.

· The time you spend in prayer is not primarily selfish but for the better good of others.

· The time you spend in prayer is substantial because God is that important to you.

You believe God is sovereign when:

· You believe the Bible and ‘live with your wife in an understanding way.’

· You believe the Bible and ‘honor, respect and submit to you husband.’

· You believe the Bible and ‘obey your parents.’

· You believe the Bible and ‘do not frustrate your children.’

· You are faithful to your spouse – in mind and deed.

You believe God is sovereign when:

· The Church is the bride of Christ, as such, to be taken seriously, and never to be criticized.

· You take the Bible seriously and ‘beware of false prophets,’ do not submit to them, and warn others who listen to them. Matthew 7:15

· You take the Bible seriously and ‘due to use have your senses exercised to discern both good and evil’ Hebrews 5.

· You take the Bible seriously and ‘Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good’ Romans 12:9

· You take the Bible seriously and ‘by sound doctrine, both to exhort and refute those who contradict’ Titus 1:9

· Jesus Christ is not a means to anyone’s selfish end, but the One by whom His sacrifice furthered the Father’s purpose and created a bride for His own glory.

About Joe Durso

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
