Surely everyone knows, Christians never gossip, slander, lie, or cheat. We constantly live like Jesus and therefore, love each other perfectly. Right? Well, in an ideal church scenario, this would be the case. Unfortunately, Christians still deal with daily sin. We know that there is just one perfect man, and that is our King Jesus. It is only when a church is led by the Spirit continually around the person and work of Jesus that we can experience more and more harmony with one another. We must remember that the work of Christ binds us all together as a family. As a family who has Jesus as the head, we strive to show grace to one another and love as Jesus has loved us. Many difficulties in the church and at home are about present and temporary problems. It comes down to perspective. Think about Jesus’ words in John 13:7, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” There are many things in life that if we live with a temporary mentality we will not understand. This can lead to disunity in the body. Your walk is to seek to live Holy daily in Him. We cannot be united together without Him. Is there any relationship in your life that you need to make right?
PRAYER – I hereby surrender everything that I am, and have, and ever will be. I take my hands off of my life and release every relationship to You: every habit, every goal, my health, my wealth, and everything that means anything. I surrender it ALL to You. By faith I take my place at the Cross, believing that when the Lord Jesus was crucified, according to Your Word, I was crucified with Him; when He was buried, I was buried; when He was raised from the dead, I was raised with Him. I deny myself the right to rule and reign in my own life and I take up the Cross believing that You are in my and I in You. I thank You for saving me from my sins and myself. From this moment on I am trusting You to live Your life in me and through me, instead of me, to do what I can’t do, quit what I can’t quit, start what I can’t start, and–most of all–to be what I can’t be. I am trusting you to renew my mind and heal damaged emotions in Your time. I thank You now by faith for accepting me in the Lord Jesus, for giving me Your grace, Your freedom, Your joy, Your victory and Your righteousness as my inheritance. Even if I don’t feel anything, I know that Your Word is true; I am counting on Your Spirit to do what Your Word says– to set me free from myself, that Your resurrection life may be lived out through me, and that You may receive all the glory. I thank You and praise You for victory right now in Jesus’ name, Amen.
