What's your foundation built on?

Dying with Jesus by Death reckoned mine,
Living with Jesus a new life Divine,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine-
Moment by Moment, O lord, I am Thine.

Moment by moment I'm kept in His love,
Moment by moment I've life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

The cross of Christ is and should be the foundation of our life.

God's plan was that through the cross our old selfish nature would be crucified.

It is through the Holy Spirit that the change comes to our heart and lives.

"And through peace made by that blood of the cross, to reconcile to Himself, through Him, through Him, I say, all things, both which are in earth and which are in heaven." Colossians 1:20 Geneva Bible of 1599

It is through people that have yielded to the Holy Spirit that enables them to face crises, and obstacles with a courage and by firm determination and with power they never dreamed they would have.

"Abide in Me, and I in you; as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine, no more can ye, except ye abide in Me. I am the vine; ye are the branches; he that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without Me can ye do nothing." John 15:4-5 Geneva Bible of 1599

Abiding is obedience.

Obedience to His will.

For without Him we can do nothing.

"For he that keepeth His commandments, dwelleth in Him, and He in him; hereby we know that He abideth in us, even by that Spirit which He hath given us." 1 John 3:24 Geneva Bible of 1599

Abiding is not striving for the top, the best, for what others have that you don't.

Abiding is not struggling, but a rest in Him!

Abiding is a life of surrender.

Surrendering to Christ.

A surrendered life is a life of abundance.

"Behold, God is my Salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also is become my Salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of Salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon His name, declare His doings among the people. Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord; for He hath done excellent things; this is known in all the earth." Isaiah 12:2-5 King James Version

Who knows where He will lead?

Listen to His voice.

Have your heart open to what God will do through you.

"And when He hath sent forth His own sheep, He goes before them, and the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice and they will not follow a stranger, but they flee from him; for they know not the voice of strangers." John 10:4-5 Geneva Bible of 1599
