God's promises are not casual, hopeful good thoughts, they are a covenant to us.
God’s covenant to Abraham was not just talking about the great nation of ancient Israel, but the ultimate promise of the covenant was Jesus.
In Christ, we have been Spirit empowered to go forth to anyone we can and share the good news of what Christ has done for us.
Too often, instead of seeing what we gain in Christ, we look at what we're losing, and we let that keep us from what Christ has for us.
Jesus doesn't come into your life to bring behavior modification. Jesus wants to make you new!
Why do we try to blend the gospel rather than seeking to live the gospel? Why do we want to make it in our image rather than let him transform us into a reflection of him? We do this when we put things in front of who we are in Christ – race, nationality, doctrinally, experientially. When we identify in this way we are modifying Jesus rather than being modified by Him.
