Non-denominational Bible Studies


You should know the purpose of your life and what happens to you when you die. The best place to find the answer to those questions is the Bible. 


Jesus said in John 8:31b-32:
 
"If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

How To Really Live
by Lee Delbridge

Introduction
You only have one life to live. It will be soon be over. It will be over whether you "just exist" or you "really live." Today, I'm going to tell you how to live life to the fullest; how to get the most out of every day; how to look forward to every morning; how to be excited about life; how to really live! There are just three simple steps. They are not easy steps, but they are simple steps. They are: know God; Know Yourself and Know God's Purpose for Your Life.


  I. Know God
       1. You Are A Lost Sinner Romans 3:23, 6:23a
       2. Jesus Is the All-Sufficient Savior Romans 5:8; 6:23
       3. You Must Accept Jesus As Your Lord and Savior Romans 10:9;       
                Acts 2:38, 42


II. Know Yourself
        1. It's OK to Love Yourself  (Matthew 22:39)  
           (1) It is possible to love yourself too much, but a little selfishness is normal
           (2) To maintain the right balance live by the Second Greatest  Commandment (Matthew 22:39) and the Golden Rule    (Luke 6:31)
        2. Know Your SHAPE
            S =  Spiritual Gifts (I Peter 4:10-11)
            
            H = Heart (Passion -- What you really like to do)
            
            A =  Abilities (One of Three areas (1) Things, (2) People or (3) Information)
            
             P = Personality (Four Basic Types - most people are a combination of two:
                 
Sanguine: Extrovert Feeling Type:       Happy, chatty, forgetful
Choleric: Extrovert Thinking Type: Leaders, drivers, dominating
Melancholic: Introvert Thinking Type: Thinkers,  perfectionists, sensitive
Phlegmatic: Introvert Feeling Type: Calm, easy-going, indecisive)
             
            E =  Experiences (Educational, Vocational, Spiritual, Painful)
         3. As Much As Possible Do What You Do Best and Get Others To Do
                The Rest
                (1) I totally disagree with the idea that you should find your
 weaknesses and spend your life improving them
                (2) You do have to bring your weaknesses up to an acceptable    
 level but then play to your strengths -- focus on what you do best


III. Know God's Purpose for You
        1. Your primary purpose in life is to glorify God  (I Cor. 10:31)
        2. You secondary purpose in life is to serve people (I Peter 4:10)
        3. Discover, Develop and then Dedicate your life to fulfilling God's
                purpose for you

Conclusion
The way to really live is to Know God, Know Yourself and Know God's Purpose For Your Life.  All three of these activities are simple but not easy. All three are lifelong pursuits. Learn from other people but never try to be another person. Take their ideas and make them your own. Learn principles and apply them. Don't try to be someone else. Be yourself! If you want to live a meaningful life then, Know God, Know Yourself and Know God's Purpose for Your Life.
