“We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.” 1Corinthians 2:12 (NIV) In life we have to make many decisions about which roads in life we will travel, will we walk down the road on the right or down the road on the left or just walk straight down the middle road? We must make choses every day to follow God or follow Satan! From the beginning of humankind God has been directing us in the right direction, but sometimes we lose our way. God sent Jesus down to earth to live among us and to experience the life that His people lived each day. Jesus died on the cross for our sins to provide us with a second chance to get it right. The day we accepted Jesus in our lives as our Lord and Savior, He gave us the gift of sanctification. If we follow this process we can thrive to be more like Jesus Christ, becoming a disciple of God, with the determination to keep our eyes on the prize, Jesus Christ.
