WHAT ARE THE
ESSENTIAL THINGS A
TRUE CHRISTIAN
SHOULD HAVE IN
HIS/HER LIFE?
A TRUE CHRISTIAN SHOULD HAVE

1. WORD
Jesus answered, It is
written: Man shall not
live on bread alone,
but on every word
that comes from the
mouth of God.
Matthew 4:4 NIV
WORD OF GOD IS ESSENTIAL TO US,
TRUE CHRISTIANS, BECAUSE:
IT GIVES HOPE (ROMANS 15:4)
IT SERVES AS OUR GUIDE (PSALM 119:105)
IT EQUIPS US (2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17)
IT EMPOWER US AND IT GIVES US AUTHORITY
(HEB 4:12)
IT IS GODS WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH US
(2 Peter 1:20-21, )
IT IS ALSO OUR FOUNDATION (JOHN 1:1)
THE WORD WAS THE SOURCE OF LIFE, AND
THIS LIFE BROUGHT LIGHT TO PEOPLE.
JOHN 1:4 (GNT)
JOHN 6:63 SAYS THE WORDS I HAVE SPOKEN
TO YOU BRING GODS LIFE-GIVING (BORN
AGAIN LIFE-GIVING) SPIRIT
1 Peter 1:23
for you have been born again not of seed which is
perishable but imperishable, that is, through the
living and enduring word of God.
THEREFORE, GODS WORDS
CHANGE US FROM BEING
WORLDLY TO GODLY (FROM
MISERABLE LIFE TO
BLESSED LIFE)
A TRUE CHRISTIAN SHOULD HAVE

2. LIFE
Or BORN AGAIN LIFE
MEANING
Therefore, if anyone is
in Christ, the new
creation has come: The
old has gone, the new is
here!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
A TRUE CHRISTIAN SHOULD HAVE

3. LIGHT
OR JESUS CHRIST
When Jesus spoke
again to the people, he
said, I am the light of
the world. Whoever
follows me will never
walk in darkness, but
will have the light of
life.
John 8:12 NIV
BEING A TRUE CHRISTIAN..
1. WE SHOULD FOLLOW JESUS
Deuteronomy 13:4, 1 John 2:6
2. WE SUBMIT TO JESUS
Proverbs 3:6
3. JESUS IS OUR FOUNDATION
1 Corinthians 3:11
4. WE ATTAIN CHRIST-LIKENESS
1 Corinthians 11:1, Philippians 2:5
5. JESUS SHOULD SHINE UPON US
Galatians 2:20
Let your light shine before men in such a
way that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16
Galatians 2:20
I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer
I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.
PEOPLE MUST SEE JESUS IN YOU
John 3:30
He must become greater; I must become
less.
SCIENCE SAYS THAT THERES NO SUCH THING
AS DARKNESS, IT JUST EXISTS BECAUSE OF
THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT.
THATS WHY THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE
DARKNESS, AND THE DARKNESS HAS NOT
OVERCOME IT. JOHN 1:5 SAYS
AS LONG AS WE, TRUE CHRISTIANS, ARE IN THIS
WORLD, GIVEN THAT WE HAVE JESUS IN OUR
LIVES, DARKNESS WILL NOT OVERCOME THE
WORLD
THE WORD WAS THE
SOURCE OF LIFE, AND
THIS LIFE BROUGHT
LIGHT TO PEOPLE.
JOHN 1:4 (GNT)
CONCLUSION:
BEING A TRUE CHRISTIAN,
WE SHOULD HAVE WORD,
LIFE (BORN AGAIN LIFE),
AND LIGHT WHICH IS JESUS
IN OUR LIVES.
