Performance In Christianity series
Introduction to Performance In Christianity
Inspired by Pastor Creflo Dollar, The Power of Knowing God series Jan 2019
In this new series, we want to highlight the works born of your belief in Jesus Christ. Faith without works is dead! James 2:18 and 20, Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
We want to define a difference between Performance in Christianity and "performance-based Christianity." There is a thin line in the actuation of these words, but the meanings they represent, especially in the Christian Church are broad. I have seen several writers publishing false information about performance-based Christianity, but the essential ingredient is, in speaking from a Christian perspective, using scripture as your foundation and that's because it's based on a false positive.
If Believers, who we qualify as Christians, do nothing with their salvation, what good is it (Matthew 5:13). We call ourselves Christians because we follow the example of Christ. This series will use scripture that represents the ideology of the Work by Faith; Work born out of our belief in our Savior. Work does not motivate God, nor Jesus Christ, not even the work we say we do in His name is not driven and based in Faith (James 2:14).
Results based belief system, we follow Christ because we have Faith in His results. If you disagree, then stop reading, it will only make you angry. We who follow the Life of Christ and we also expect His Work to be made present in us. Galatians 4:4-7, But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
We are not basing our salvation by faith on the performances we make, that would be performance-based; we are performing work based on the Faith we have in Jesus Christ. Continue to pray for us as we continue to press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
