Wisdom from Above Part 4
Many Christians think that the promises of God will automatically manifest if they simply go to church. As Believers live with God from day to day, they ought to grow in spiritual understanding just as they grow otherwise. When they begin to see themselves as God sees them, it will elevate them to a life more pleasing to Christ. Sadly, many Christians barley live Christ-like lives. When Believers offer themselves to the Lord, they set in motion a process of transformation that leads to a new life in Christ. By refusing to embrace the way of this world, Believers are able to experience the will of God for their lives.
