Live a Christian life and be the best church member you can be by following the thirteen-week Bible study presented in Members Matter, by author Pastor James M. Siler. Using scriptural examples, he discusses the beliefs of the church and the role church members are expected to play.
Consisting of three study units and thirteen lessons, this valuable tool examines issues such as assurance, spiritual warfare, the Bible, the church, the second coming of Christ, and discovering spiritual gifts. Members Matter challenges new church members to grow in faith as well as to find their place of service in the local church.
As a believer, you can have assurance that Jesus has forgiven you of your sins and you are a child of God.
A young lady did not fully comprehend what the pastor was saying after she publicly professed her faith in Jesus Christ. She was filled with such excitement about her new faith that what he said didn't seem possible. He told her, "Don't be surprised if the devil tells you later today or maybe, tomorrow that you are not a Christian. When the devil tempts you in this way go back to the promises of salvation in God's Word that you just claimed by faith.
New believers are often assailed with doubtful thoughts concerning their salvation. In fact, Satan frequently attempts to fill their minds with confusion and fear. Although Satan may catch them off guard with these thoughts, victory is theirs through the promises of God's Word and the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
