Helpful Verses

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.  For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” 

Galatians 5:16-18


“His presence must be invited to flood in, filling every inch of our lives.  For our goal is not self-actualization, nor self-expression; rather it is life with God.  Life with the presence.  We must decrease, so He can increase.  For as we decrease, we become more filled with His presence, taking His presence with us into our lives, into the web of relationships in which we move, the places we visit, the moments in time we inhabit.  Yet to do this, we must be first changed by the coming of His presence.”

Mark Sayers

“People all over the world-outside the church and in-are looking for an escape, a way out from under the crushing weight to life this side of Eden. But there is no escaping it. The best the world can offer is a temporary distraction to delay the inevitable or deny the inescapable. That’s why Jesus doesn’t offer us an escape. He offers us something far better: equipment. He offers his apprentices a whole new way to bear the weight of our humanity.”

John Mark Comer
