Ephesians 1: Your Identity in Christ-Part 1

Identity in Christ

As followers of Christ, it is extremely vital that we know and understand our identity in Christ.

If you are shaky and tossed by the wind with regards to your identity; you may know all about God and you may be keenly aware of how you are expected to walk by faith and live a holy life as a Christian. But you may find it to be an uphill task until you renew your mind with scriptures regarding your identity and what God has done for you in Christ.  Knowing who you are in Christ will give you the boldness

Walking in the fruit of self-control

self-control

Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control. 2 Peter 1:5-6

Even if you live all by yourself on a deserted island somewhere in the middle of the ocean, you will be required by God on a daily basis to exercise self-control.

The NIV Study Bible defines self-control as “victory over sinful desires” while the Dictionary of Bible Themes defines it as “physical and emotional self-mastery, particularly in situations of intense

Strait Gate and Narrow Way

Strait gate narrow way

I have what I personally call ‘God Speaks’ moments. These are times when I receive a word from God that is clear and direct and I know that I know that I know that it is straight from God to me.

The other morning, I woke up to a ‘God Speaks.’ It was clear and direct and He said ‘Strait and narrow.’

I walked into the bathroom meditating on ‘Strait and narrow.’ Why was God telling me ‘Strait and narrow?’ Then I reflected on Jesus’ words from Matthew 7:13-14 KJV.

Beauty in Christ: The Fruit of the Spirit

Fruit of the Spirit

If you are anything like me, you may work really hard to pick out the perfect outfit everyday; but especially before an outing or a big occasion. However, our spiritual clothing is far more important than the visible physical clothes we have on. Our inner lives and hearts are critical because the thoughts and intents of our hearts eventually flow out especially under pressure (Luke 6:45).
