- We have communion to remember what God has done for us.
- Why read the Bible? To know God. If you are going to help someone at work, if you make friends, are married you need to get to know them.
- Don't do what Man wants, do what God wants. Reading Bible is not to gain knowledge about God, but to know God - relationship. Abraham was a friend of God. This is what we want to be.
- Learn about God and learn about fellowship. Fellowship- get to know each other's heart. The things that tick you off and the things that don't.

Bible references: John 5:30; 6:38; Eph 6:15-16; Eph 2:1, 5
We do have problems but we shouldn't have. It's done!
Jesus died on the cross. He rose again. As his people we should live in victory.
After the cross:
He rose on 3rd day
He ascended into heaven
The Holy Spirit came down
When law introduced to us we have this rebellious nature in us
Law in its fullness = life
Law not fulfilled = death
We can't fulfill law ourselves, we can't get there. Christ died for us.
The law was excellent. The problem is us. The law has been fulfilled by Christ. He fulfilled it, not us.
We can't live the law perfectly.
The law was excellent.
The cross has been done; Jesus gives us life. He then gives us the Spirit.
We can choose whether to stand on our own merits (keep every law) or stand in the Lord (grace)
Your choice in life- sin or Christ.
Slave of sinfulness or a slave of righteousnessness. Our choice.
Choose lawlessness you will become more lawless; choose Christ you will become righteous.
Where we put our faith - example to us is Abraham.
1 Corinthans 13 - faith, hope and love.
Faith - we come on board with God and walk the journey of faith.
We are declared righteous by faith in Christ and what He has done
Phil 4 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
