Maturity and sonship in christ is having the lord over your life.
no matter how much it makes your ego and religion cringe, there is only one lord over all heaven and earth, and that is jesus christ (y'shua)
More than a few televangelists have fallen from grace because they have allowed satan to lure them into believing fame and fortune — and not seeking and saving the lost -- is the goal.
more recently, a widely-respected founder/preacher/teacher of a megachurch in the central part of the united states was fired for being highly inappropriate on several levels and making the ministry his instead of god’s.
preachers aren’t the only guilty of letting the sins of pride and greed distract them away from giving god the glory for who and what they are.
no matter what we do for a living, no matter what we do for fun, no matter where we spend our time or who we spend it with, jesus needs to be present. people need to see the joy filling our hearts. people need to see the compassion of jesus in our eyes. they need to experience that compassion and love in what we do with our hands, our feet, and the resources god has blessed us with.
everything we do should tell the world who we are: children of god saved by the blood of jesus. regardless of what we say, our actions will always speak loudest. .

Thank the lord for all he's done and beyond our understand 🙏😊 type "amen" if you believe
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing];
the punishment [required] for our well-being fell on him,
and by his stripes (wounds) we are healed. ~isaiah 53:5~
thank you lord jesus for the sacrifice to save my wretchef soul. ❤
can you remember being younger and hearing the slogan, "milk does a body good?" all in ads, dairy commercials on tv, magazines and radio, this marketing catchphrase was drilled into our subconscious and our parents stood by it. "drink your milk so you grow up and be big and strong," i heard and in some part i believed it too. i used to say with pride, i've never had a broken bone in my life!" subconsciously, i would attribute it all to being obedient as young boy and drinking my milk when i was told.
just as we put faith in the things we eat and drink to nourish and provide for us the nutrients we need daily to sustain a healthy body; we should moreover feed on the word of god daily to keep our spirit man strong, healthy and alert.
