Living Faith – Faith that Gives Life
You Can’t Live for God until He Lives in You
1. You Must Have a Transformational Experience
His death, burial, and resurrection are the key truths of the Gospel (1 Cor. 15:1–8).
- We are saved by faith in Christ (He died for us)
- We live by faith in Christ (He lives in us).
- We died with Him
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?,
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
- We have been “raised to walk in newness of life” (Rom. 6:4)
The real key to living a life of faith is the divine means supplied by the indwelling, powerful, ever-present Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.;
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
