from Christine Caine, and i quote…
“… fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you (Romans 12:2 MSG).
We are called to be.
A cycle of listening to an inspirational message, doing the right thing for a week then falling back into old patterns of behavior happens when we try to act our way to a good, Christian life.
But we are called to be.
Cycles like the one I just described can continue for years because we have not allowed Jesus to permeate the very core of our being and true transformation hasn’t occurred. We haven’t really undergone conversion, just a partial behavior modification. Essentially, we’ve become actors in a drama rather than pilgrims on a journey.
So today, allow God to work in you from the inside out. Allow Him to perform that heart-work so He can work through you in awesome ways and you can just be!”
