Our Objective: Get Better
9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
- Your choice is simple, on what do you set your mind?
1 John 4
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.
- Love casts out fear and eliminates torment.
- As He is, so are we.
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
- The world is ignorant of Jesus.
- There are laws that govern how God operates and the world doesn’t get it.
6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”
- Submission to God’s Kingdom and humility cures worldliness in our lives.
- Humility makes us as powerful as God.
7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
- Resist the devil, set your mind against him, he has to flee.
- This is a constant fight, a battle we have to win.
- Choose to win, every day, in every way.
