I suppose if you read through my blogs, you would find lots of flesh articles, lots of God Moments, lots of frustration and lots of joy.... I listened to someone preach the other day suggest that we are failing as disciples because we haven't been taught how to disciple. For the first time, I rejected it. That's nonsense! God put everything you need, in your heart, in your mind, and in your DNA to become a disciple of Jesus. You were created by GOD. You can sure go to a lot of classes, or college, you can put notches in your belt for the years you've studied, or the degrees you've been given...but I'm here to say that all you need is you and God and gift of freewill and the willingness to make a bunch of mistakes, let a bunch of people down, but set your sights like flint to Jesus.
I love knowing that God has given us the gift of freewill. Satan is here simply to make suggestions to you, to choose his way over Christ. It's really actually interesting, as God did create him for that purpose. Without it, you don't have anything that would give you the opportunity to choose. Sure you can go ahead and make Satan into a great big monster, and a great big mountain...with scary demonic features... or you can see him, as what gives you the ability to choose. If YOU have the POWER to CHOOSE. YOU have the POWER to CHANGE.
Thank you Jesus.
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you
life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
