In order to abide in the love of Christ, we must follow His commandments and obey His will at whatever cost.
What drives you toward greatness?
An incredible poem by the late great Annie Johnson Flint
When a child is born, the life in the womb has ended. For nine months that child saw nothing, heard nothing, felt nothing except the tiny confined space that was his “home.”
Our Christian walk consists of two births: the physical and the spiritual. First we are born of physical flesh and water. But the second birth is on the inside, the soul, where the spirit dwells. It is there that the second, spiritual birth takes place.
When we keep our sins hidden inside of ourselves, there is a lack of surrender to God.
God is a compassionate God. He loves unconditionally. He cares unconditionally. “He loves us enough to take us the way we are, but He loves us too much to leave us that way.”
When we keep hidden sin in our lives or continue to live in sin, we place a block between ourselves and God.
We are born into sin. In Romans 5:12-21, Paul explains because sin entered through Adam, it and its consequences have been passed down from generation to generation.
Think for a minute and then ask yourself…..
How often do I put the needs of my spouse above my own?
