Plus Special Bible Study Focus: Your Spirituality and Personal Battles

Temptation will come but as Jesus Christ battled the spirit of deceit (the devil – Matthew 4:1-11 NIV); you can withstand and overcome by realizing whom you are (*a spiritual being) as well as who resides within you (*God’s Holy Spirit). ~ For more on Matthew 4:1-11 NIV go here:

For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” 1 Corinthians 12:1, 4, 7,12-13 ~ For more go here: rinthians/12.htm


Know Your Worth!

You Control Your Destiny, But GOD Is Destiny…http://ibeatmybadhabitan

“Christians are expected to study their bibles and readily acknowledge the existence of GOD as Spirit.  The word of GOD is studied by Christians to find out the truth about who we are spiritually as well as physically while we await the judgment.  Regardless of what many people from many cultures and religions may believe, there can be only one truth. As you study the word of GOD it is easier to acknowledge this:  “GOD is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 NIV ~ For more go here:
