If you surrender your heart to God and let go of trying to figure Him out, He’ll be able to get a better hold on you.
Because Jesus is eternal, He’s never outdated. Because Jesus is alive and present, we can continually experience His indwelling within us. The living Jesus offers us deep rest–inner rivers of living water to cleans and refresh us with inner peace.
The phrase, “Jesus is Lord,” means He is in charge. We say it, but seldom allow Him to be. If our Christianity doesn’t give us the inner power to begin to live a godly lifestyle, we’ve accepted a counterfeit version
A gathering/community of Christ-followers belongs to Jesus, not to any other person. It’s His, not mine. When Christians meet, we should let Jesus prompt various people to speak in the gathering, but we rarely do.
When Christians keep their focus on a pastor, they begin to ignore the reality and presence of the living Jesus. True Christianity requires that we prioritize Jesus, keeping our focus on Him and refusing to be distracted by alluring deceptions.
