“When you have the Spirit of God in you, when the Spirit of Christ takes up residence in you for the first time in your life you will have the capacity to say no to things you never could say no to before, because you simply didn’t have the ability to deny yourself.”
“The true genuine freedom is not just free from the law and not just free from the restrictions and condemnations that came from the law, but you are also free from your own simple depraved mind and proclivities so that you can now say no to the things you never used to be able to resist before. But you also have the freedom to say no to those things that offend your conscience.”
When the Spirit of Christ takes up residence
in you for the first time in your life
you will have the capacity to say no!
and that’s a beautiful thing!
Soli Deo Gloria
