    Gift:v37-38 we are the vessel that Christ cleans up so the spirit can move-in 2nd Corinthians 5:17. I sure messed up a lot(sin). I am thankful for First John 1: 6-10, 2:1-- Satan surely knows our weakest point he will never stop his attacks on the Lords people!! Put on all of The Lords armor-- Ephesians 6:11--- ! We are surely in the birth pains! Hang on stay near the cross WE are soon going HOME.

    I was born in a Christian family where Dad and Mam are in full time ministry.But this didnt/doesnt qualify my salvation,i got born again 5years ago but i use to struggle with an addicition of irotic videos(even pornography) inspite confersing Christ.The issue was i didnt renew my mind so it was like putting new wine in an old bottle.Transformation comes by the renewing of the mind

    V. 14 - the leper; Jesus said "go and show thyself to the priest and offer for thy cleansing". I looked up just what all that 'offering' entailed; My goodness!! It'd take all day to do that!! Which is fine; what Jesus did for us was a lot more than that.

    verse 5:27...Jesus says "follow me".. to
    receive the Holy Ghost and do what he said to do, act the way he said to act in the gospel. submit your heart to Him and have the courage to say? thy will be done..our strength is the Holy Ghost and are true, sincere love for him...
