The Bible talks about “a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached.” Refuse to settle for less than the living, resurrected Jesus!
If your lifestyle doesn’t follow suit with the Holy Spirit something has gone awry. Spirit-prompted Christians consistently manifest these characteristics: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
When Christians won’t express disagreement, with kindness, peace, love, and patience, we’re refusing to manifesting the fruit of the Spirit. When the body of Christ isn’t producing people who overflow with the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), things are out of whack.
There’s a big difference between catching a wave and hearing a talk about waves. The same with God’s Spirit.
Let the living Jesus
Take over your heart
And heal what’s broken apart.
Allow nothing ungodly to stay in your heart.
