The Gospel of Jesus Christ provides sound doctrine. It is sound teaching that explains the essence of our identities as believers. So, what separates us? In Romans 6:17-18 the Apostle Paul writes, “But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.” The reality of sin is that it enslaves us to cycles and patterns of addiction, oppression, delusion, deception, pain, ignorance, and despair. Contrastingly, life in Christ promises “righteousness, joy, and peace in the Holy Spirit,” who leads us and guides us into all truth (Romans 14:17).
True doctrine liberates every soul that believes and obeys it. It is a supernatural fertilizer that brings real growth and transformation through the power of God. His doctrine is just a revelation of who He is, and therefore, who we are in and through Him. Only when we get a revelation of God in His supernatural Being can we ourselves become supernatural people. If it weren’t for the blood of Jesus to take away our sins, we would still be lost and without hope. The nature of sound doctrine is like yeast. It slowly causes our faith to rise and expand. Similarly, sound doctrine is an active ingredient of our faith that affects our character and our destiny for the glory of God.
