VerseD: Galatians 5:24

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Galatians 5:24, ESV

God accepts us for who we are, and then He changes us. We still have our personality, but the things we want and the way we think about things should change.

Let God change your desires. Put them on the cross, and walk with the risen Lord daily.

VerseD: Matthew 7:24

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
Matthew 7:24, ESV

If our worldview, our way of thinking and knowing what is true, is not grounded in Christ and the Bible, we will be deceived by many things and wander aimlessly through life (or in the wrong direction!)

VerseD: James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

VerseD: Matthew 11:15

He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Matthew 11:15, ESV

Do you listen to Christ and His followers, or do you listen to what sounds best to you?

Do you seek the truth found in the Bible or, like Thomas Jefferson, pick your favorite parts only?

VerseD: Lamentations 3:22-23

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23, ESV

We know that God is faithful in love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness, because the cross of Christ proved His faithfulness.

VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, ESV

Faith in Christ primarily comes from the preaching of the Gospel from the Scriptures.

Know the Gospel. Believe it. Share it with others that they may be saved.
