Already You Are Clean
Transcript of Already You Are Clean
"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch of Mine that does not bear fruit He takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit He prunes (kathairei), that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean (katharoi) because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you.”
“O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?”
“You crazy Galatians! Did someone put a hex on you? Have you taken leave of your senses? Something crazy has happened, for it’s obvious that you no longer have the crucified Jesus in clear focus in your lives. His sacrifice on the cross was certainly set before you clearly enough. Let me put this question to you: How did your new life begin? Was it by working your heads off to please God? Or was it by responding to God’s Message to you? Are you going to continue this craziness? For only crazy people would think they could complete by their own efforts what was begun by God.”
“To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling….”
1 Corinthians 1:2
"[God] is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom and our righteousness and sanctification and redemption."
1 Corinthians 1:30
"Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed."
1 Corinthians 5:7
"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."
“Christian obedience is not an expression of man’s effort gradually to realize his own innate potentialities, but an ever repeated response to the ever newly repeated summons of God."
Theology and Ethics in Paul
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me."
"In Christ, God declares me to be ‘righteous, washed, pure and set apart for Him’. And yet there is nothing my experience to suggest that these things could be so in and of myself. If I live by my own estimate of my life, I act accordingly. Alternatively, I can surrender my life to the lordship of Jesus and live by God’s assessment of my life. So whose word will I live by? I am glad to live by God’s word and the blessed release that it brings, looking by faith to Him for who I am, looking in love to my brothers for what I do. By His word, I am directed outward, never inward."
"Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
"The real Son of God is at your side. He is beginning to turn you into the same kind of thing as Himself. He is beginning, so to speak, to 'inject' His kind of life and thought, His Zoe, into you; beginning to turn the tin soldier into a live man. The part of you that does not like it is the part that is still tin."
