Answer this question: Does the God who lavishly provides you with his own presence, his Holy Spirit, working things in your lives you could never do for yourselves, does he do these things because of your strenuous moral striving or because you trust him to do them in you? Donít these things happen among you just as they happened with Abraham? He believed God, and that act of belief was turned into a life that was right with God
Galatians 3:5-6
The Message

Philippians 3:1-15

Watch for barking egos

Keep walking believing Jesus will finish what he started.
Donít look back, believe in forgiveness.
Donít forget what is ahead, Jesus.

Yea, so?
Do you believe that Jesus wants us to enjoy life to the fullest? (John 10:10)? He does, and has set every thing up for us to enjoy it, trust him and life in the Spirit.
Do you believe that it is impossible to enjoy all he as done when you still try so hard to impress him? Let go of all that so you can embrace him and be embraced by, accepted and loved.
Do you believe 2001 can be the first year of many where you grow in your relationship with Jesus by focusing on what heís done?
