“The Lord has told you, “You are not to go back that way again.” (Deuteronomy 17:16)
Things change when Jesus Christ assumes control of our lives. We become new creations and are transformed into instruments for service to God. We abandon the old ways of doing things. We no longer try to earn our way to God through works. Instead of living the law of the flesh, we live by the law of faith. We become ambassadors for Christ.
As we practice the concepts of Soak, Sow, and Flow, our attitudes, thinking, and behavioral patterns change. The love of Christ compels us to live in harmony with the will of God.
We don’t go back to our old way of living. We now live in relationship with Christ. But, it’s a battle, isn’t it? The old self doesn’t want to let us go. But as we begin to have God’s Word operating in our lives, we are transformed into living a new way. Christ in us progressively overcomes the self-life of our sinful nature.
Today, ask yourself:
What steps do I need to take to Jesus Christ to have complete control over how I think, feel, and act?
