Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on February 10, 2015

1. Sin and weakness are not the emphasis, love is. 1Peter 3:8

2. No fear in regard to justification or condemnation; fear of consequences in sanctification. James 5:9, Philippians 2:12,13, 1John 4:16-19

3. We are truly righteous and good. 1John 3:9, Romans 15:14

5. Justification is a gift, we earn rewards in sanctification. Hebrews 6:10

6. Obedience is love. John 14:15

7. The Holy Spirit is our HELPER, not one who obeys for us. John 14:16

8. Sanctification is NOT a rest. Galatians 5:7, Hebrews 4:9-11

9. Our soul is saved, we await the redemption of the body. Romans 7:24 (“wretched” means: one who is persevering in affliction, NOT personal wickedness). Also Romans 8:23

10. Prayers can be hindered by disobedience. 1Peter 3:7

11. Strive for a clear conscience. Acts 24:16
