“We were not made to be something, we were made to contain someone”…PAUL ANDERSON —WALSH
That’s right we can have a YEAR OF SUCCESS! That quote says we Contain the Son of God in the form of Holy Spirit. What a great Truth, but some of us are struggling running around TRYING TO GET IN A ROOM WE ARE ALREADY IN!!!
Since this is the Truth, wouldn’t you think we could go ahead and live that way? So what are you thinking right now? Are you saying, “I do, but I don’t, then I do, but then I don’t, or are you saying…. Uh…which day?” Yeah, that’s what I thought. Aren’t you ready to give it up?…..
Starting the New Year with a Brand New Slate IS THE TIME…
Here’s some help, looking at some verses will help reinforce Who We Are In Christ. The Word of God gives Truth to Stand on. Reviewing them through out the year will develop Spiritual Backbone as you walk in the Truth…..
Someone once said this thought about the work of Holy Spirit in our lives “Holy Spirit does not condemn us of sin, He convicts of us of Who We Are, saying “what you are doing is not acting like Who You Are and it does not look good on you”. He will be our guide as we put each foot in front of the other…
The key to living a Successful Christian Life is to go ahead put “your foot in the water” by Faith and see the water part. Live Like “Who You Are“, or might I say, Live Like Whose You Are and live Alive in Christ how much better can it get…WOW!!! Let’s go do it…..
