Self Perspective

Self perspective? NO!! My perspective is based on Christ’s perspective Call me a Christian because by His will He justified me from all my depravity Yes at His Son’s expense I got saved, He implanted the seed of faith so now I believe Self-perspective is now futile because He tells me to put the focus on Him instead of me…. So what I feel, want and desire is garbage compared to what The LORD has in stock for me It’s awesome knowing the God of creation who saves men in His perfect will And knowing that the devil only comes to destroy, steal and kill Knowing that the author and giver of all life came so I can have life and not just have it but have it more abundantly… So with this feeble brain and these feeble lips I will lift up my feeble hands and say The LORD is so HOLY, HOLY, HOLY With reference to the middle verse of the scripture; Psalm 118:8; I will put confidence in The LORD, I will not rely on self or any other man Having known that everything we have or see all belongs to Him, everything is a work of His perfect hand So doing what my peers are doing or what I see on TV or what I hear on the radio is all foolishness Because He says I shouldn’t conform to this world but rather be transformed by the renewing of the mind so I can live a life of Godliness…. My life through Christ’s eyes is amazing Can you imagine a world without lights, imagine total darkness. Now can you imagine a world without Christ, Who is the way the Truth and the Life. The true Light Knowing that He’s in me in the dark I’ll shine bright and the dark cannot comprehend it I don’t know why but I know it is by Grace through repentance and believing that my sins are forgiven So what am I ought to do with this life that I’ve been given, other than to say Holy Holy Holy is the Messiah who was raised, is to make sure the great commission is carried out even So when you ask me what happened to the old me, I say he’s dead and buried away And I suggest you take the Word of God seriously because your body, my body this earthly life is nothing but a phase it is passing away I know it’s true because in my life I’ve seen change, those who believe in Christ are new creatures and He does not just end there He wiped and cleansed and shifted my world view so I can refrain from sin and when I sin, I repent. Then I’m right with Him Then He sees me through the Son not SELF-PERSPECTIVE….
