Love God and do what you please _St. Augustine
Keep your relationship to Jesus right and God will fulfill His purposes in your life. Get out of touch with His Living Spirit, go in your own strength and you will walk in flesh.
Oswald Chambers was the one who pounded this into my heart when I first became a Christian. I lost it countless times since those early years but it has echoed again in my heart when I realize I’ve been going it alone and trying to become right and be made whole by my own works instead of because and through Christ’s work in me. Namely, if I have taken of praying with desperation of myself. Praying with desperation for God to be at work in me. Also praying with faith that GOD IS. God is at work in me and that He has won the battle.
Do I believe the promises for my life? Do I live in conscious dependence on Him? He’s the Source.
Are we seeking to work for Jesus or to LOVE Jesus? Love Jesus and He’ll work through you His work.
