Who you are in Christ
Author: Kylie Welch

Chapter 13
Putting these together = Victory!

 

"Make every effort to add to your faith goodness;

and to goodness,knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control;

and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;

and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.

 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure,

they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive

in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ".  

This scripture is a good way of describing how to put things

together.  Add goodness to faith, knowledge to goodness, perseverance to

self-control and you will end up with a measure of Godliness.

 Sounds easy eh.  Ok, so what have we learned so far?

Don‘t worry about others thoughts - that job belongs to God. 

Create Boundaries, Cast down imaginations.   

Can you imagine going through your day with these rules as guidelines?

 When someone looks at you funny, you don’t have to

worry about what they are thinking.  That is God’s job. 

When someone comes to you and asks if you want to do

something that you have already created a boundary for –

you can choose to stay within the boundary you have created. 

When your mind starts racing faster than you prefer –

 you can now start to pray, cast down those imaginations and

lean on the Word of God.

With education and learning, you become more able to

cope with what comes your way in life. 

No one is perfect, but with practice you can become stronger,

mentally, physically and spiritually. 

Like any muscle in the body, as you exercise it in a different way than usual

 it takes time before you start to see results. 

Keep practising these new guidelines and they will

become second nature to you in no time.
