He lives in you

I often feel overwhelmed. Do you?

We’re in good company. Not too long ago, Sheila Walsh said this, “Woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed with everything I have to do this week. Then I remembered The Lord and this glorious offer..”

What glorious offer?

This one, found in Matthew 11. . .

 

rest

 

As we wrap up our four-week study #youandGod, I want to leave you with one thought:

Because you are the Church, He lives in you.

 

How does that change your faith?

It means that you live in rhythm with Him.

That who you are is changed from the inside out.

It means that it alters the direction of your life, and it spills out over your relationships with people.

It means that a you-and-God relationship brings faith to life.

It pulls off the limitations and pushes you gently into His view of you and the part you play in His plan.

burden

It means that there is more to this thing called Christianity, and when someone asks you why you believe you show them Jesus instead of a list of rules.

It means that there is rest for you internally when it’s chaotic externally.

When we grasp what it means to have a you-and-God relationship, it leads us into the harder paths of faith like forgiving and loving others. Then we begin to grow into God’s view of who we are.

We discover the deeper depths He wants us to see.

What does it mean to you to have a you-and-God relationship?

How is that changing you?

  1. In market different kinds of oil, shampoos or treatment available for stopping baldness
    before use them consult your doctor. Using chemical may cause harmful
    effect on the skin. And back to the beginning of this tale, it is really nice to feel special.

    Make your own serum of natural oils for damaged hair.

  2. This right here speaks to me this morning, Suzie, “It means that there is more to this thing called Christianity, and when someone asks you why you believe you show them Jesus instead of a list of rules.” I was basically asked this question yesterday in a round about way…”Why do bad things happen to good people? I know you are a “religious” person, but I have a hard time understanding how God can be good when people die too young.”- I gave a long answer, but the crux was that my Hope isn’t in my religion, it’s in the Person of Jesus. I guess I come across as “religious,” but I never want that to be what defines me, I only want Jesus to define me. These are good questions and thoughts today. Thank you for always leading us back to the cross…xoxo
