Christians are called to see culture, politics, race, and ethnicity through the mind and humility of Christ, not the opposite. When Christians are mean, it makes people think we don’t really mean what we say about love.
To be the best I can be, I need less of me and more of Jesus. He is an alternative energy source of the supernatural kind. Open your heart and life to the living Jesus and hold on! It’s best not to wait till you’re dead to meet the living Jesus.
The Holy Spirit disagrees with many of our desires and feelings and inwardly urges us to live contrary to them. You can’t live in and walk by the Holy Spirit if you insist on doing what you want to do.
To disobey God is to pretend that you know more than He does. Self-identity is based on self-focus. However, Christ said to “deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Me.” I love staying on line with and staying connected to Jesus through out the day!
The Bible says “resist the devil,” but Christians too often resist the Holy Spirit. To be Spirit-led is to do what the Spirit says do, say what the Spirit says say, and go where the Spirit says go.
If Jesus is truly alive and present, Christ-followers should demonstrate His presence, power, and love — for all to see. Do you? “Love your enemies,” is a command for Christians, not a suggestion.
