2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness then all these things shall be added unto you.

Mankind tries to make things so complicated, it isn't. Jesus fulfilled the Law by committing Himself 100% to the Father. He took all of our sins and sicknesses and death upon Himself and destroyed all evil once and for all. We continually bring evil back to life by focusing on it. Count the number of times in a day, we focus or think about a particular sin, or sickness. It is inumerable, to many times to count. We can only think about one thing at a time, so if we're thinking about, for instance, a beer or better yet trying not to think about a beer, we're still thinking about a beer.
Instead of trying to not think about any sin, replace that thought with Jesus, or in other words, The Word! Bingo, we just changed our focus from sin (carnal thinking), to Jesus (spiritual thinking). So we are now focused on Jesus, all other thoughts pass by and we cannot be tempted. We do not, nor can we change ourselves so quit trying to. Focus on Jesus...........simple! Seek.........read the Word which is Spirit.........find........... all the Gifts that the Father has already given us.
Fear does not draw anyone, it paralyzes. LOVE draws us to itself. Think of a bully, kids run from a bully. Where do kids run to the person that loves them. Now the kids that hang around a bully are doing so out of fear. What happens?Eventually they rebel against that bully.
It is the same way with The Father when we try to draw people to God through fear of punishment, what happens they will stick around Him for a period of time then they will rebel against Him.
Teach the real side of the Father, which we see in the Son, Love, Mercy, Kindess, Forgiveness, longsuffering all Good things come from God and are good. Then it not only draws us in ..........but keeps us there! It is simple!!! We don't change ourselves, the Love of the Father does, which is shown to us by JESUS and He changes us! Perfect Love casts out all fear.
