Applied Christianity

God...how do I live this out practically?

I mean, this is what you want—this is what you are looking for in your children.  So help me to understand the walk You desire behind these few words . . .

“He has showed you, O man, what is good.  
And what does the Lord require of you?  
To act justly 
and to love mercy 
and to walk humbly with your God.”  
Micah 6:8


Be kind.
Be fair.
Be loving.
Be patient.

Curb your self and self’s desires.
Live to please Me, not your self.
Make My priorities yours.
Live your life in such a way that others will see your good works and attribute them to Me. (Matt. 5:16)

Don’t just learn—implement!

“More than conquerors” don’t simply 
receive truth in their minds. 

They work that truth into their thinking 
until it is a natural reflection of their being!

Be changed.
Be renewed.
Be humbled.
Be lost—to self so that you can be found in Me!

Set your heart to seek Me—and when you find Me—don’t walk away unchanged. 
Allow grace and mercy full access to your soul. 
Purpose to change. 
Determine to renew your thinking. 
Then apply the truth to your living

This is sanctification.
This is the walking out of your salvation.
This is applied Christianity.
This is living in My power and authority.

This is not only what I require of you—it is what I desire for you!
