Spiritual Reality

THE ME LIFE

God helps those who help themselves. I must pull myself up, I must keep on.

I bear my own burdens, I strive for Him with grit and determination. The struggle is real.

My life is exhausting. My works feel like death. Sin continues to defeat me. 

Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Romans 7:24

On my own, I am defeated, stressed, and miserable inside and out.

THE Christ LIFE

I am dead... My life is now lived by the faith of the Son of God.

"I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." ... And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."  Galatians 2:20

I've rolled my burdens over on to Jesus; I've taken his yoke.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28 - 29

His life through me produces more life in the form of a river.

"He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38

Because of Him, I am victorious and full of joy!

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. Corinthians 15:57
