January 18, 2015 - What You Believe Determines How You Will Live - Romans 1:16-17

  • Ideas and beliefs are extremely important.
  • What you believe determines who you will be and what you will do with your life.
  • You want to make sure that what you believe is the truth.
  • Our faith in God isn't something we have conjured up in our own hearts.  It has come through the faith of those who have gone before us.
  • To call yourself Christian is to claim that you have inherited a set of entirely life-transforming ideas.
  • Doesn't it make sense to believe in a faith that has guided people through persecutions, plagues and wars, loss and heartache, and everything you could possibly face in life?  It is waiting for you.  It is your inheritance.  But like all inheritances, it has to be received.
  • We will all lose a lot of things we love along the way in life.  If that is all we believe, then our lives will be a continual experience of despair.  But if we lean on the great 2,000-year-old faith of the church, then life will be a continual experience of the salvation of Jesus Christ --- Very God of Very God.  It is your choice.
