10/7 What does “Relinquish” mean for the new Believer in Hearing God?

January 4, 2015

women w glassesSo far we have seen that the first step toward in being a Jesus Follower is to be willing to ‘Relinquish’ our own ways of doing things, defence masks and be willing to step into a different mind-set.  “Maybe …. Just maybe I need to check out what this Jesus thing is all about…”  To do that means to lay aside the self-satisfied ways of doing things … and just maybe find a whole new world hidden behind that veil of doubt and ignorance.

10/8 To ‘Relinquish’ is a process

January 24, 2015

toomuch2We spend another post on the first stage of waking with the true Lord Jesus.  Recently It’s Spring in my part of the world, in Australia.  For those of us who do any gardening.  Spring means what?  Ohhoooo – weeds….over grown patches where the winter cold has let its mark.  Patches where once flowers bloomed and bushes thrived.  Wind and cold keep us indoors but now … warm sunshine.

Our life is much like a garden, especially when we think about inner growth and new freedom in Christ.  Old ways of doing things, of handling problems in our own self-effort become clear in the light of a new Spring.  Tangled vines, dead mind-sets, crumpled paths … and sometimes broken tree branches block our view.  We could go on and on but I’m sure you get the picture by now, even if you’re not a gardener.
