There can be no life beyond dreams apart from rejecting the influence of the old sin nature and following the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
To place yourself under the command of someone;
To put yourself under orders to someone;
To dedicate yourself to another.
You are being trained to function under pressure.
For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.
1] You are willing to exercise self-discipline.
2] You are willing to obey commands every day.
One is carnality which is when we succumb to the temptation of sin.
The other is reversionism which is rejection of the will and plan of God.
Our sins have been removed from us and placed on Christ.
Our old sin nature has been nailed to the cross.
We have the same righteousness and holiness as the Son of God.
Our position in Christ is secure forever.
Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
We are complete in Christ.
1] Salvation – Faith alone in Christ alone.
2] Do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness.
3] Present yourselves to God.
LAM 3:22-23, The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy faithfulness.
