SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

  • I love apostle Paul, his honest, sharp and dignifying characters, his life was an open book and he was not afraid to show his weaknesses in God's Grace "I don't really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don't do it. Instead, I do what I hate" (Romans 7:15). How often Do I find myself in this very same struggle?....Too many to count...I had no hope...but "He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time" (2 Timothy1:9). My heart renews with this verse daily, "Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Phil 1:6).
