I’ve loved exploring the subject of God’s empowering presence with you. As our community has been growing, we’ve had a beautiful journey, and it’s been such a pleasure to respond to your comments and questions.
In this episode, I’ll be answering a few questions:
1. How do we increase our capacity to receive grace & is the old man the same as the sin nature?
+ Grace is empowering presence; it is in us because Jesus is in us.
+ Grace is in every situation that we are in.
+ Our sin nature is dead; it died with Christ, and our new nature rose with Him.
+ We have a sin habit, not a sin nature.
+The Father elevates the new man to conform us to the ways of Jesus.
+ You crucify the flesh by ignoring it and focusing on the new man.
2.What does alignment with the Lord really mean?
+ Confession is the same as alignment, especially when we confess a promise back to God.
+ Every time we acknowledge every good thing in Jesus, we’re coming into alignment.
+ God creates alignments in how we see, think, speak, and act.
+ When we give God the preeminence, we’re coming into alignment with how He wants to make us in His image.
+ Jesus lined up with the Father, but only saying what the Father was saying and only doing what the Father was doing.
+ Alignment is about watching and listening to what God is doing.
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, questions, and testimonies with us during this series. I’m thrilled by the story God is changing for you and the journey of discovery that you are on. It’s obvious that God is working in a really powerful way. :D
