Verse Listing and Notes
The principal key in a successful Christian life is fellowship with the heavenly Father. Christians manifest the more abundant life in direct proportion to the fellowship they keep with Him. We receive sonship when we are born again. But sustained fellowship depends upon the renewing of our minds according to His Word.
II Corinthians 5:21 Through the new birth, we are righteous.
John 5:24 We have eternal life – no waiting to find out!
Romans 8:1a No condemnation.
I John 1:7 Walk in the light.
Fellowship is the one thing that makes for a happy situation both in a human and in a spiritual family.
John 15:5 Renewing the mind brings much fruit.
When a son is out of fellowship with God, he is not able to get prayers answered. God is not unwilling to answer His son’s request, but the broken fellowship on the part of the son leaves his confidence in God shaky and uncertain.
I John 3:21,22 Confidence toward God.
Whenever and wherever sons fail to get prayers answered the cause is broken fellowship, either from not knowing or not living The Word. God is faithful who has promised and He will bring it to pass; thus, if it does not come to pass it is due to a flaw on the man’s part.
When a son of God is out of fellowship with his heavenly Father, nothing will work; but when fellowship is restored, things begin to operate.
I John 1:3-2:2,2:6 For born again ones, sin is broken fellowship.
Sonship is God’s permanent relationship with us.
Fellowship is our continued relationship with God.
Romans 12:2 Not conformed to this world.
Philippians 2:5 Put on the thoughts of Christ.
Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.
To the extent that The Word richly dwells in us we have fellowship with God. To the extent that we believe and act according to God’s Word, our lives will be full, rich and fruitful because our fellowship with God is strong. We then have confidence toward God. When we know and live His Word we are doing His will.

Verse Lising and Notes
“The legal right to use the name of the person who has given you the power.”
Ephesians 1:17-23. Exceeding greatness of power in Christ.
Three reasons for the power in the name of Jesus Christ:
Jesus inherited a more excellent name than any other in heaven and in earth: he was the only begotten of the Father. Heb. 1:4,5. Romans 8:17 – Heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.
God gave Jesus a name which is above every name. Philippians 2:9,10.
Jesus acquired for himself a name above every name. Ephesians 4:8. Col. 2:15.
The power which Jesus acquired is the legal right of every born-again believer. But for a believer to manifest Christ’s power in his life, he must renew his mind according to the Word of God. Rom. 12:2.
Matthew 1:21. Jesus: savior.
Acts 4:12. No salvation in any other.
Acts 2:38. In the name of Jesus Christ, gift of holy spirit.
John 14:13, 14. Whatsoever you shall ask in my name.
Acts 3:6,7. Rise up and walk. Acts 3:16.
Acts 16:16-18. Spirit cast out.
Colossians 3:17. Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Ephesians 5:20. Giving thanks in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippians 4:19. All needs supplied by way of Christ Jesus.

Righteousness is the God-given justification (freedom from the penalties of sin) whereby a person stands in the presence of God without any consciousness of sin, guilt, or shortcomings.

Philippians. 3:9 Righteousness through the believing of Jesus Christ.
II Corinthians 5:21 That we might be made the righteousness of God.
Romans 3:22-25 Righteousness by the believing of Jesus Christ.

The whole world is trying to earn righteousness by their own deeds, which they can never do. We have the joy of walking in the righteousness which he already accomplished for us, by his perfect, accomplished believing as our lord and savior.
