“But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me,” 1 Corinthians 15:10 KJV.
Religion makes complicated the understanding of the reality of the purposes of God. Religion makes conformity instead of the identity that we find in Christ.
We are transformed by the Holy Spirit whom we represent. Once we get the revelation and realize our hopeless condition of dependence on conditional works, then we can no longer accept nor offer the cheap brand of mindless “Merry Go Round” religion by behavior modification and performance.
We must demand with ALL authority in Jesus name to get off the cycle of defeat that takes us round the mountain so many times!
How much more must we be convinced?
We must make a mindful decision and chose to speak to this mountain and mean it and don’t ever go back.
It is time to cross over beloved!
Make up your mind with authority and say stop this thing I am getting off NOW, in Jesus name!
Whatever we look intently into determines what we will reflect. Remember that this life is about knowing Christ and reflecting him.
It is relational not religious. Our lives are an altar to God. What do we offer?
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
