It is GOD who BLESSES and TRANSFORMS...

This is a blog for women who:

(1) Desire to be transformed by JESUS' LOVE, HOLINESS, AND GRACE; (2) Believe that GOD'S WORD is the true Spirit food for HIS HOLY SPIRIT who lives within us; (3) Submit to GOD and walk this journey of life with HIM transforming us more and more into HIS likeness.

It's a blog about the POWER OF TRANSFORMED LIVES. Let's begin with yours and mine and pass it on... 1 + 1 + 1...

Since God's Holy Spirit lives inside a christian, let's choose to be nurtured and transformed by feasting daily on Holy Spirit food - God's Word - The Holy Bible..

Once in a while I take a hiatus from writing, but I have begun again on Easter Sunday 2013. Usually, there will be multiple blog postings each week. You are invited to use it as part of your daily quiet time. Topics may run for several months at a time. The current topic is posted over on the right side bar. Each week, I will try to connect to a song or two that goes with our current topic.

Each day of the week follows a special format: Sunday in the Son; Meditation Monday; GratiTuesday; Women in the Word Wednesday; Transforming Thursday; Family Fellowship Friday; and, Ketchup and Mustard Saturday.

There's a whole lot here! Take your time to browse. Please come back and visit often. Welcome!

Because of Jesus, we can be family,

Patti



TRANSFORMED MOMS:MOMS TRANSFORMED

Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

HOLY GROUND... AS IF I HAD NEVER SINNED...

TRANSFORMING THURSDAY
.

Let's face it! If you are reading this, then you have sinned! SIGH! As Romans 3 says, "...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..."

Yet, many people these days think SIN is an "old-timey word". Most are more comfortable saying, "I made a mistake!" or "I had an indisgression."


I'd like to be frank. It is hard to face the truth head on. SIN IS SIN! Your sin and my sin is what Jesus died for. It's up to us to trust and obey Him. We must trust that Jesus has taken our sins away. We live in Him as we choose to walk the walk of obediece to Him... No turning back!




It's important that in our quest to love the LORD that we live to please Him by being obedient. Obedient to what? His word! Understanding what it means to walk the CROSS WALK. Understanding what SIN is and what SIN is not. Comprehending what it means to live a SINLESS life.






I just went to http://www.biblegateway.com/ and did a word search of SIN. The word SIN is in the Bible 1364 times. SINNED? 88 times. SINNING? 22 times. SINNER? 63 times.
.
Galatians 5 refers to SIN as "acts of the flesh" and lists them accordingly,



"...sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;


20 idolatry and witchcraft;


hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage,


selfish ambition, dissensions, factions


21 and envy;


drunkenness, orgies, and the like.


I warn you, as I did before,


that those who live like this


will not inherit the kingdom of God."
.


So, what would it look like to live the opposite? Could we write it something like this?



...sexual morality, purity and self discipline;


20 JESUS;


love, harmony, giving honor, fits of joy, humility,


collaboration / cooperation, unity


21 and honoring the differences;


filled with the Spirit, fellowship with believers,


and the like.


I warn you, as I did before,


that those who live like this will inherit the kingdom of God.



What happens if I mess up? If I'm living in JESUS and for JESUS, He takes the blow... the punishment... the condemnation... Romans 8 says,


"Therefore,


there is now no condemnation


for those who are in Christ Jesus..."


So, no turning back my friend!


Jesus has you covered.


Live intentionally!


Each new day, we step out of the bed and


STAND ON HOLY GROUND -


AS IF WE HAVE NEVER SINNED...
