Find Your True Value and Freedom

Friend and Father or Slave?

Many view Jesus and God as a stern Lord or slave master, but it could not be further from the truth. Yet, many Christians are very focused on what they must do for Jesus, or whether they are doing everything right.
They might think: Have I committed some sins that have made God angry at me, and in some way he wants to punish me?

What are Jesus and God calling us? Is it slaves and servants? Or is it his friend and son or daughter?
I want to share with you two scriptures today that will show very clearly how God looks at you.

Does God Want to Use You?

Many Christians often pray this prayer: God use me!  I myself have prayed this prayer, especially when I were in my teens. 

One of the reasons was that I were afraid that I could not be used for anything, and I attached my identity to what I could do and to be used for.

 I have one year and 3 months old daughter (when I write this) and I love her over all on this earth.
 But my thoughts are not this: What can I use my daughter for, or what can she do for me?
 Had I been thinking so, I would have been a selfish, self-seeking and evil father.

You Are More Valuable Than You Think!

We are all looking for value and being someone important. We are all looking for love.
I think if we truly saw our value this world would look very different! This applies not only to the non-Christians, but to us Christians as well!

I think there would be less gossip, envy and judging others if we really saw who we truly are, I actually think these things would not be a problem, even sin would not be a problem anymore if we truly saw who we are!

See this important encouragement, which I think can help you and inspire you!

The Spirit and the Flesh?

(This is an additional version of a teaching I had for some months ago )

Many Christians don’t understand Galatians 5:17 very well, about the struggle between the Spirit and the flesh.
Many people when they look at this verse they think that this it is about our new spirit and nature, fighting against the evil part of me, called the flesh.

It means I still have a struggle on the inside and I have to constantly try to be in my spirit and try to kill the flesh, the evil side of myself.

First, notice that the Spirit is capitalized, that means it’s not about your spirit but God’s Spirit. Secondly, remember that the flesh is not you, because you are already in the spirit and not in the flesh. The flesh is crucified already and you live in the spirit now, it is very clear in some verses later (5:24-25), but the flesh will try to influence you so you do not do what you really want to do.
You have God and His Spirit on one side that will affect you and lead you, while you have the flesh on the other side who also wants to lead you, but none of them are you and the flesh is not in you either, or your true nature. Although you have already become a new creation and have a divine nature.

You are in the middle and you can choose to follow the flesh or the Spirit.

Are You the Spirit Or the Flesh?

You Are the Fruit of the Spirit

Someone might wonder about this headline? But I will explain to you what I mean with this headline during this teaching.

For many years I was afraid of reading Galatians 5 where it is talking about the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit. I was afraid that if I did some of the acts of the flesh, I did not  belonged to God anymore. I sometimes could get angry, I experienced jealousy and I know I did some of works of the flesh, and then it says that those who do such things should not inherit the kingdom of God.

Today, I am no longer afraid of this scripture, for I have seen truths about my

true identity and nature, my nature is the fruit of the Spirit not the works of the flesh. I will explain this to you in this teaching today!
