Is Your Belief System Offline?

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

In the Old Testament, the focus was on performing; in the New Testament, the focus is on faith. What’s necessary is not faith in our own performance, but in Jesus’ perfect performance and what He has already done. This is what positions us to receive the blessings promised in the Bible. The Gospel of Grace emphasizes the link between belief and obedience; as Christians, we mustn’t stumble and fall back into thinking that our works are more important than our faith in Christ. With this in mind, we must abandon the self-efforts that religion demands from us and simply trust in Jesus.

What Does It Mean to Obey in the New Testament?

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The finished works of Jesus Christ have radically redefined obedience from the Old to the New Testament. Under the law, mankind was required to obey perfectly through constant self-effort in order to avoid being cursed; this covenant failed because no one was able to keep all of the commandments. By contrast, in the New Testament, we receive the blessings promised to us by believing in Jesus’ perfect obedience instead of in our own; this frees us from depending on our own actions.

How to Take Possession through Grace (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Grace is God’s way of loving us and showing us mercy and undeserved favor, simply because we trust in Him and receive Jesus Christ. The key to receiving this unmerited grace is believing in His unconditional, unrestricted love for us. A relationship with God gives us access to the kind of grace that fights for us, protects us, and refuses to let us walk away from Him. When we internalize faith in God’s love for us—instead of in our own actions—things we can’t take credit for begin happening. Genuine belief in this gives us rest from worry, anxiety, and our own strivings.

Grace for Daily Living (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

God’s favor works in our lives on many different levels, one of which is to provide what we need every day. Our faith, not in what we do but in what Jesus has already done, activates grace to begin working on our behalf. This frees us from constantly striving through our own efforts and enables us to confidently trust in Jesus’ finished works. Trusting in His grace matures us and helps us to grow into the person God wants us to be.

Grace for Daily Living

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Grace will certainly be waiting for us when we get to heaven, but we can begin experiencing it right now, in our everyday lives. In the physical realm, grace has made available to us every good thing we need in life; in the spiritual realm, it has also made us the righteousness of God. We receive grace as long as we stay humble and avoid pride. Genuine faith in His grace allows it to flow into our lives.

Three Aspects of Grace

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

To get a clearer picture of God, we need to understand His unearned, undeserved favor toward us. His grace goes far beyond simply forgiving our sins; it’s His way of dealing with those who receive Christ. Grace provides assurance, stability, and direction in the lives of believers. It isn’t something reserved for when we eventually get to heaven; it immediately begins working in our daily lives the instant we believe and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
