Hey! Check out this quick video and then read the blog post below!
You Against You = Not What GOD wants

Matthew 12:25 – Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.’…”

When I am against myself – I will not stand.

But we say, “No – I must die and Christ must live.” Yes – but check this out – is God against you or for you?

For you.

We shouldn’t be against ourselves, but be for ourselves – who we are in Jesus Christ.

What Christ said wasn’t to constantly cut yourself down, but to lose yourself and make Him Lord.

Bringing yourself down all the time will get you nowhere – trust me, I know. Rather than cutting ourselves down (which is not what Christ wants us to do), we must be for ourselves as people of Christ.

Believe in Christ’s power in your life – believe – believe – believe- & be.

A house divided against itself will fall.

But stand in & let Christ’s power work through you in everything you do (Philippians 4:13).

Say to yourself, “This is one house not divided – but secure with the foundation of Jesus Christ.”

Fruit-caking wake up and experience the power we have to overcome everything in Jesus Christ!!! Don't be divided against yourself.


Q
-&-A:

1)      Where have you been cutting yourself down the most? How has that been productive? Realize that cutting yourself down is counter-productive to building yourself and God's Kingdom up.

2)      What does God say about you? Don’t believe lies that Satan tells you, but look through the Bible & write down 5 things that God says about you. (i.e.: He made you in His image…; For God so loved you that He sent His one and only Son…)

3)      Pray, simply, that God would help you overcome your problem areas of self-image and that He’d give you His strength to conquer & overcome for His Glory. That He'd let you see yourself as He sees you. Believe.

 
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.   Ephesians 5:1-4

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.         Colossians 3:5-8


With the tongue we praise our LORD and FATHER, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.    James 3:9-10


Just from the way you talk, do you think you are bringing praise to God?

Just from hearing what you say, would people think you are a follower of Jesus Christ? A Christian? A believer?

Me: I know I say things I shouldn't. I have a problem with coarse joking...but will fix it right now with God's help. How about you?

How have the Words of Christ changed you?
