The Goal of The Bible Study on the Seven Ones of the Christian Faith
Evidently, there are seven things every Christian must know about the Christian faith, and on which must strive to unify, bring others together, and belong. For example, "Preserve the unity... There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all" (Eph 4:3-6).
So, the goal of this Bible study is to search the Scriptures to learn the exact meaning and purpose of each "one". For clearly, these are the building blocks of the Christian religion, and therefore are essential to know, understand, experience and maintain.
The Goal of The Advanced Three Level Christian Bible Study
Level 1 - To help everyone know God and obey the gospel, by studying the Bible chronologically. This is the Advanced Chronological Study of the Holy Bible. For "those who do not know God and... those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus... will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power" (2 Thess 1:8, 9).
So, it is imperative to help everyone know God and obey the gospel. For “The gospel... is the power of God for salvation to everyone” (Ro 1:16). Who wouldn’t want to know God and have a chance to be saved from their sins by obeying the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Level 2 - To help every church be authentic and mature worshipers of God, to please him. This is the Bible study on New Life. The Bible Study on True Worshipers. And the Bible Study on the Divine Regulations of Christian Worship.
For "true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" (John 4:23, 24).
So, it is imperative to help every group of worshipers become truthful and spiritual in their worship of God. Who wouldn’t want to be the kind of worshipers whom God seeks, not ignores?
Level 3 - To help us discover and fulfill all of our spiritual gifts, because “When He ascended on high He gave gifts to men” (Eph 4:8). Who wouldn’t want to discover and use all of his spiritual talents?
Now these are noble, lofty, and worthwhile goals! Will you join with the Lord and me in reaching out to your family, friends, church group, co-workers, or community to advance these excellent things? Thank you, and God be with you. I appreciate your fellowship in the ministry of Christ.
