In 2017 we in the Body of Christ must follow the way of the Holy Spirit to accomplish what the Lord has for us this year. The lifestyle of the believer should witness to all the blessings that Jesus paid for at the cross. Here are a few principles that will help you do just that in 2017. James 1:22 tells us we are to be doers of the Word not just hearers only. That verse is self explanatory. Unfortunately most Christians know the Word but fail to apply it to their lives and receive nothing from the Lord. In this new year let's commit to diligently applying the Word to our lives. We will surprise ourselves at the positive results. John 8:31-33 is straight forward in letting us know that knowing the truth is what makes us free. That knowing is the intimate knowledge of the Word. The word knowing used in this scripture implies that you have personal knowledge of the action of the word in question. Meaning that you have applied that word to your own circumstances of your our life. When you apply God's Word in this manner it will produce exactly what it says it will. Dare to believe the Word and watch your world change in alignment to the Kingdom of God. Jesus commands us to walk in love. John 13:34-35. In this new year lets be a doer of this Word. Let's renew our minds to focus on others and help them. This simple change of thought and attitude will produce a power to attract every blessing that is in Christ Jesus. Love never fails. Just the willingness to help those who are less fortunate shows are hearts are right and releases the supernatural power of the Lord all over and around us. Walk in a commitment of forgiveness to all. Be ready to forgive all the wrongs people do to you on a daily basis. Forgive any past grievances and let forgiveness flow 24/7. You can do it. It just a matter of choice. Have a daily prayer time. This not only brings God's power on the scene but also produces a sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. The next three items will forever bring the peace of God to every occasion. Don't lie,complain, or grumble. As we discipline our lives in these areas we will manifest God's power and bring His presence into our realm of influence. This is all the Lord wants for us. To live in His blessings and be more like Him every day.
Until next time this is Pastor Dayne saying Be Blessed and follow the Holy Spirit.
