7 Areas of Life

VCL Conference Diagram 150-A
Each problem, need, or question we encounter in life arises from one of the 7 Areas of Life.

If we, as believers, don’t have a solid understanding of what those seven areas are (or how God designed them to operate), we are subject to stronger delusion and deception from Satan.

In fact, most believers do not function spiritually in each of these areas of life, but instead operate ‘carnally’ (relying solely upon their intellect, experiences, reason, 5 senses, resources, and opinions as opposed to the revealed Word of God).

When we are spiritually born-again in Christ, the Bible teaches that the Spirit of God now lives within us. We are then encouraged to cooperate with God in the process of conforming us into the likeness of His Son (Rom. 12:1-2; Rom 8:28-29; Prov. 3:1-12). This is called sanctification.

Sanctification occurs when the Word of God, the Truth (John 1:1-3) begins to be practically and specifically applied to our own life in each of the 7 Areas (or ‘7 Pillars’ as described in Proverbs 9:1-6).

We are admonished dozens of times (just in Proverbs!) to get “knowledge”. Knowledge is our personal pursuit of knowing what God’s thoughts and ways are in all 7 Areas of Life.

We are also exhorted to get “understanding”. Understanding is our personal awareness of how God’s thoughts and ways work.

But most of all we are implored to get “wisdom”. Wisdom is our personal ability to practically and specifically apply God’s thoughts and ways to our everyday life. When this ability is developed, we become wise in living.

When this supernatural Life becomes our daily experience, we are then used of God as “living epistles” read by all men (2 Cor. 3:2-3) and are able to effectively teach others (2 Tim 2:2). This is the spiritual reproduction that every believer is called to (Matthew 28:19-20).

The Victorious Christian Living Conference is simply the foundation of the Scriptural vocabulary and principles that Total Life Ministries uses to enable a believer to understand God’s Word more clearly and thus effectively apply what they have found there to their everyday lives.

Total Life Ministries endeavors to then disciple believers, using the Word of God, into a mature and stable walk with Jesus in all 7 Areas of Life so that His divine nature is expressed through them into every circumstance and relationship they encounter on a daily basis.

Our advanced 7 Areas of Life training and materials are designed to assist the maturing Christian in developing a comprehensive understanding of God’s design in each of these areas (Spiritual, Psychological, Physical, Financial, Social, Marital, and Parental) so that the life of Christ is not only displayed in the believer’s life, but effectively transferred to those they choose to minister to.

Each of the 7 Areas of Life are also exclusively presented in separate workshops that one may attend (i.e. Financial Workshop, Parenting Worship, Communication Workshop, etc.) to gain an in-depth knowledge (as well as hands-on experience) with any of the specific areas they are interested in.
