Entitlement Christianity: Claiming a superior knowledge of grace while running rough shod over the direct commands of God (Example: Acts 2:38).

SELF-CONTROL

This element of the Holy Spirit partnership is perhaps the most telling characteristic of all. Many of today’s most deceptive false teachers so emphasize the free side of grace that they discredit personal responsibility in the receiving and fostering of God’s grace. Notice again the first half of this hyphenated word - self-control.

In Romans 8:16, the Holy Spirit records this very important description of grace, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.” (NKJV) Notice again the words, “with our spirit”. The process of living within God’s grace is a partnership. We cannot save ourselves and we cannot grow on our own. However, choosing to keep the door open in order that the Holy Spirit can work within us is our personal responsibility. Notice the words of Philippians 2:12-13 “… work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Q: How do we work out our own salvation? (vs 12) A: We keep the door open so that God can work in us. (vs 13)

One of the greatest lies being preached today is that the free nature of grace removes personal responsibility to receive and grow in that grace. A living witness to the power of a Holy Spirit partnership (Self-Control) may be the only way your friends will ever understand the part they play in the journey toward a full relationship with God. Remember, time is short. Live like their tomorrow depends upon you!
