Word for the Week...SEPT 25 ---OCT 1/ 2006

"The disciple is not above his master, but everyone that is perfect shall be as his master."

We are the clay..HE is the Potter. Will we reach perfection in our own strength and by our own merits? Of course not ! What The Lord means here is that... as we draw near to HIM with faith,He IS  our righteousness and He brings about that transfoming work in us of Christlikeness, for HIS Glory, and our sanctification. Everyone wants to lead, few want to follow. Why is this? It's the difference between pride and humility ! The former comes naturally, the latter...is a fruit of The Holy Spirit. Let's continue to exercise The Gifts...but please don't forsake the Fruit !

May The Lord Bless you.
