Life Recovery

The fruit of a righteous person is a tree of life, and a winner of souls is wise.

Proverbs 11:30 GW

“But you must never eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because when you eat from it, you will certainly die.”

Genesis 2:17 GW

“Stop judging, and you will never be judged. Stop condemning, and you will never be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and you will receive. A large quantity, pressed together, shaken down, and running over will be put into your pocket. The standards you use for others will be applied to you.”

Luke 6:37‭-‬38 GW

We were created to be loved and to love.

God is love.

We were created in the image and likeness of God.

There is only one fair judge.

And that’s not us.

We were never meant to judge between good and evil, because that would make us a judge and kill us.

To know good and to know evil means to be intimately acquainted with them.

We were never meant to know evil.

But we do.

It’s all around us and inside of us.

Not dissimilar to God.

God is all around us, too.

The last stronghold is making sure He is inside of us, too.

Jesus is the tree of Life.

He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

If a seed dies, it springs forth with new life.

It multiples itself.

Jesus is the seed of Life.

All life was created by Him, through Him and for Him.

He died on a cross.

And the Holy Spirit was given unto us.

He died so that He could multiply the sons of God.

He is the firstborn of many brethren.

If you’re judging and condemning others, you will be judged and condemned.

If you do not forgive others, you will not be forgiven.

Jesus Himself said, “The standards you use for others will be applied to you.”

We are supposed to be in Christ.

That’s in His nature, in His Body, in His image.

We are ambassadors for Christ.

The old way of life is dead.

Christ has given us new life.

We are being transformed.

The outer shell may look the same, but the seed of life has sprouted.

Our bodies are the soil.

We’re not here to judge.

We’re here to love and sow the seed of Truth.

God will make it grow.

A winner of souls is wise.

May the Lord of Heaven and Earth create in you a clean heart.

May He speak when you speak.

May He act when you act.

May the fruit of your life be a tree of life to those around you.

May Christ flow through you like streams of living water.

May God purify your soul and turn your works into pure gold.

In Jesus’ Name I pray.

Amen.

  1. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a baptism of Love!
    What is the baptism of the Holy Spirit? It’s a baptism of love most of all!–Love for God and also for others. Everybody that’s saved has a measure of the Spirit. Salvation is like having a little bit of water in the bottom of a glass, but being baptised with the Holy Spirit is such an outpouring of the Spirit that you’re filled to running over! When you get the baptism of the Holy Spirit, you get wet all over! He pours in His Holy Spirit and it wets your soul and satisfies your thirst and fills you from top to bottom until you have a mighty tide of love and happiness not only for yourself but to overflow upon others, to get them saved and filled with God’s Love too! (Jn.7:38,39)

    You’re not just filled once, but you’re refilled every day as you read the Word and as you ask Him for more love. The more of His Love you receive from Him, the more your heart will be so filled to running over that you cannot contain it.–And then, as you overflow on others, you cause them to grow and blossom like flowers as they are filled with His Love.
