Regard No One According To The Flesh

[Message given at Momma Jo’s, at the Andre House in Phoenix, October 2018]

I didn’t know covenant love, nor did I know truth.  As a result, I was always trying to get love; I  recklessly pursued belief-systems and adopted paradigms that would enable and advance my sinful, selfish desires.  The many false beliefs I had presumed about God, others, and myself, allowed lies to operate in my life—creating division and separation, as well as destruction in the lives of others.

Because of my sin, wounds, and false beliefs, I was bound in shame.  As a result, I was always trying to cover, hide, escape, and control my shame. Continue reading “To Destroy The Works Of The Devil” »
