What Paul Said

Paul gives three characteristics of a Christian in the book of Philippians.

1) Worship in the Spirit of God - The true source of life. Our conversion and sanctification is the work of Christ.
2) Glory in Christ -All our hope is in Christ. Our affections are on Him alone.
3) Put no confidence in the flesh - We recognize that we are sinners and our works are useless. We rely solely in the righteousness of Christ.

These are God's true covenant people; a covenant that covers our sins and what we truly deserve. Romans 5:12 Ecclesiastes 7:20

The work of the cross is not abstract, the effectual call of the Spirit is real, and the sovereign grace of God is AMAZING.

Oh to joy in Christ alone!
