At GVC we've spent November talking about life-change. How God loves us enough to change us, and what that process looks like from the inside-out. Hope you've enjoyed our discussions and seen yourself in them. His Word is like mirror!
We can find incredible traction in our walk of faith when we come to terms with this and allow other ideas and feelings to fall away in the light of it.
- His love for you is because of who He's made you and isn't based on how you live
- You're not earning more love or less love as you go; you live fully in His favor and grace right now
- God hates sin because it robs you of the fullness and joy of the life He's created for you
- God found a way to deal once and for all with sin so it has no power over you and so you can live in close relationship with Him, always
Most of us understand this to a small degree ...and have experienced the enemy doing anything he can to stop us seeing it more fully! However, he is no match for Holy Spirit, and realizing more of His Love for you is right ahead if you're walking with God. And when you experience it it changes everything.
Mara and I are so happy to be in a church like this with you!
