Take Home Points

  • It all boils down to this: Jesus Christ
    • Why He came
    • Who He is
    • What He came to accomplish
    • What He will come to accomplish.
  • We have to start thinking of relationships as defined by truth:
    • Close family—Believers who share the same doctrinal beliefs
    • Family—Believers who do not adhere to doctrinal beliefs
    • Mission field—Unbelievers who do not know the truth, but are receptive to it
    • Enemies—Those who reject and oppose the truth.
  • Walk in the sphere of truth. God protects you in truth.
