2 Corinthians 3:18 - "But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror, the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."
Our goal is not to become perfect people, but to abide in the one who is perfect. Our righteousness will never be in us, but will always be in Him. It is not what we do, but what He has already done, that changes us.
NO MENTAL STRUGGLES, NO SADNESS, NO TEMPTATION, BONDS, OR TEMPORARY AFFLICTIONS ARE GOING TO MOVE ME OFF MY COURSE -- GOD HAS ALREADY GIVEN ME THE VICTORY THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
2 Timothy 1:6 - "Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands."
The Greek word for gift is "charisma" which describes those spiritual abilities with which God equips believers. Nothing in the realm of the Spirit is accomplished without this "charisma", or supernatural ability of God.
I AM GOING TO COMPLETE MY CALLING IN CHRIST -- I'M GOING TO REACH MY DESTINY.
Acts 24:16 - "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men."
MY SUCCESS IS DETERMINED BY WHAT I AM WILLING TO IGNORE.
2 Corinthians 6:3 - "Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed".
