...our Heavenly Father wants us to accept the reality of our past as we walk a path of healing and forgiveness. He does not merely save us from sin and death. He also saves us from the trauma of our past.
It is not enough to merely confess Christ as our Lord and Savior that makes a spiritual and significant impact. We must walk in obedience to God's will. Study the scriptures. Live in the center of His divine sovereign will. By doing so, we increase in our faith. We grow in His Grace and truth. We become healthy and strong in the Lord.
Through our love for God, we deepen our love for others. We walk in mercy and grace and forgiveness. We sow kindness. We are gentle and mindful of others and their needs.
We are to discipline our very thoughts and actions to conform to Godly Wisdom and Righteousness.
Who is our neighbor? Christ's response - those who stand in need. Those who are broken. The marginalized. The one's suffering and perishing. These are our neighbors. They are those individuals that Christ may send into our lives to bless.
We entrust our lives to Him without any hesitation. By doing so, God is sovereign and graceful to where He strengthens us to meet any challenge we may face. His strength becomes our strength. His wisdom teaches and guides us into His righteousness and peace.
