Always Taste The Wine
"Transformation that is not integrated remains an unsprouted seed in our hearts.
Transformation is an unfolding process, not a once-and-done event.
You can receive Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior. You can be filled with the Holy Spirit and fire, but until we integrate these transformations they remain shallow, self-controlled, and merely religious.
Transformation Embodies In Our Life
If you've received Jesus, and Peace, Shalom, and Well-Being Aren't the hallmarks of your life, the very fragrance you carry with you, you haven't integrated your transformation.
If you've been filled with the Holy Spirit and fire and transcendent Joy isn't the hallmark and the fragrance of your life, you haven't integrated your transformation.
We do not live an event, but a transformed life.
Until we get this right, nothing else matters. The goal of Christianity is NOT to get us to heaven, The goal of Christianity is to get Heaven into YOU and me...to live heaven on earth, from the inside out.
Transformation is more than a temporary change of consciousness or a state of being. We embody Christ.
That is why Jesus came, to Be the way, the truth, and the life through his life, death, and resurrection within us. It isn't just receiving the transformation of Jesus into our hearts, it's integrating that transformation where we become the very atmosphere and embody the character of heaven on earth.
Jesus wasn't resurrected so that we may go to heaven while the earth goes to hell.
Embody Christ, don't merely imitate. Allow transformation to change and work from within, from the very core of your being.
It's time to stop going through the motions of church and being a Christian. Shift from forms to substance, from shadows to reality within you.
Listen. Transformation without integration remains a seed in our hearts while little to nothing changes in our lives and in our world.
Dare to be the change of Love, of Joy, and of Peace together with others and all of creation. Let the light of love shine through your life.
Be a catalysis of transformation. Embody, don't merely imitate Christ.
