The Christian’s Privileges
The Scriptures teach that the Christian has great and amazing privileges in Christ. Let’s look at these blessings:
1-Forgiveness of Sins
“In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, (Ephesians 1:11 also 1 Peter 1:4).
“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10 also Ecclesiastes 12:13).
4-The Presence of God
“I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20 also Revelation 3:10).
6-Love of Others
“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints” (1 Thessalonians 3:12-13).
“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).
8-The Grace of God
9-Divine Victory Over Sin
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
10-Protection From Evil
“But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one” (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
11-Having an Advocate
“My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1).
12-The Help of the Holy Spirit
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever” (John 14:16 also 16:7).
13-Power for Righteous Life
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you” (Romans 8:11).
14-Assistance and Comfort
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30 also Isaiah 42:3).
15-Obtaining Physical Necessities
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33; Mark 10:29-30).
16-Protection of Angels
“Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?? (Hebrews 1:14 also Daniel 10:2, 12-13).
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7).
“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases” (Psalm 103:1-3).
“Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence” (Psalm 91:3).
20-Honor Before Enemies
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies” (Psalm 23:5).
