Living and Staying Free in the Victory of Christ

1. Control Your Environment:

- Only run with people who love God.
I Cor. 15:33 Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits.

- The music we listen to and sing should edify our soul and exalt our Savior.
Phil. 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Heb. 2:12 I will declare Your name to my brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praises to You.

- The TV we watch (and all other things we see: magazines, internet, etc.)
should edify-- build up our soul and exalt our Savior.
Our eyes are the window to the soul.
Jude 20, But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
Prov. 23:7 As a man thinks in his heart so is he.

Phil. 4:8 Finally my brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy---think on these things.

2. Live a Life of Truth: Recognize and Run from the lies of Satan. He is the Father of Lies.
Remember: John 8:32 You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.

3. Establish Your Life in and by the Word of God: Matt. 4:4, Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
Psalm 199:11 Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee.
Get your life from God's Word.
We are what it says we are! We have what it says we have! We can do what it says we can do!
Know it----Believe it----Trust it----Submit to it.

4. Live to Praise the Lord: THANKS GIVING IS THANKS LIVING!
Don't allow the praises of God to be far from your lips. Live a life of thanksgiving to God.

Even if you don't feel like it. Do it any way!.

Phil. 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say rejoice.
1 Thess. 5:18 In all things give thanks-
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

5. Humble Yourself before God: GOD STILL RESISTS THE PROUD! James 4:6

6. Pursue God: If you seek Him you will find Him.
Deut. 4:29 And you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

Phil. 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Pursue Him with all your heart.

for they shall be filled.
