Doing Should Spring From Being

Posted by on Dec 31, 2012 in Quotes | Comments Off on Doing Should Spring From Being

A problem with the knowledge of good and evil is that it makes us believe that doing is the same as being.

The Principle of Unlearning

The Principle of Unlearning

I often hear the complaint, “Why do I always have to be learning the same things over and over again?”

We would do better to re-frame what the true goal is before we shame and judge ourselves.

The only and true goal, better described as a state of being, is to be IN Christ.

John 15, the parable about the vine and the branches, best describes how this functions. In this state, nothing is done apart from being attached to the Vine where a natural course of fruitfulness will follow.

So what should our reaction be to those things we have judged as hampering and recurring?

Ask the Holy Spirit for two things:

1.  To unlearn the lie. The sins which so easily recur are always based on lies.

2.  To know the Truth which sets you free.

For Him to have His rightful throne, He must displace the lie. Are you ready for that?

Truth has mass. Once He gains His space, once the lie has been unlearned, we don’t have to revisit or relearn.

To move forward we must not learn, we must unlearn.

Rejoice Beloved!

Being Led by God

Posted by on Dec 12, 2012 in Articles | Comments Off on Being Led by God

Being Led by God

“There is only one basis for really enjoying life, and that is, to walk in the way in which God leads you. Then you are prepared to find delight in all sorts of wayward incidents….When a man is drifting through life, seeking nothing outside of self-gratification, the world must become increasingly a barren and forbidding wilderness. But it is wonderful how many delights fall to the lot of him who is led by God. For such a one the clasp of a friend’s hand, a cool drink in the heat of noon, a merry salutation from a passing traveler, a glimpse of beauty by the road, a quiet resting place at night, are all full of unspeakable pleasure.”  Author Unspecified, Leaves of Gold
