Tag: relationship with Jesus

"The fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, etc.) is impossible to manifest by yourself. These things only come about in the context of relationship. That's why Jesus sent out His disciples 2 by 2...that's why He sends the church out as a body. Because He's not just revealed by you or me individually. It's in the relationship of believers that the love of Jesus is manifested to the world."

"The fact that God gives us the freedom to make choices doesn't diminish His sovereignty or authority. God, in His sovereignty, didn't ordain which choices you would make, but rather ordained that you would be free to make them. Anyone who is not sovereign would be afraid to do this."
~ A.W. Tozer
"The irony within the tradition of the American church is that we talk all the time about having a personal relationship with Jesus...and yet we spend very little time teaching people how to actually have one."
