Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

The Virtue of Contentment/prestudy/321Method/day4/Sue CarrollJohn 8:31,32

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

The Virtue of Contentment/prestudy/321Method/day4/Sue Carroll

This passage goes on to say…

33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

Isn’t that just like “us offspring”…who? me? Not me, Lord.

34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

In light of this Truth, we must take seriously the proposition that we are all enslaved to sin beyond our ability to master. mmhmm.

yes.  I am.  gluttony, unforgiveness, jealousy, pride, unbelief…just to name a few!

To be free…is to know TRUTH…to know JESUS…for He is TRUTH.

ABIDE…REMAIN…WAIT…DWELL…in Him…and we can be FREE from these sins that rob us of the JOY and CONTENTMENT God promises His children.

I MUST eat BREAD (life)…on this I CAN be a GLUTTON:)

As we get ready to DIG into the VIRTUE of Contentment, let us agree to COMMIT to ABIDING.

LET THEM EAT BREAD!!

There we will find all the TREASURE God has stored up for us!!!

Use this weekend to work through the Doodle & Lettering Lessons for WK 1 & Document your Personal Prayer for the whole study.  If you haven’t used the 3, 2, 1 Method of Study for the last 4 PRE-STUDY Posts…please work on those too!

Don’t forget to check in with each other on our FB page:)

I look forward to DIGGING in DEEPER with all of you!

Blessings,

Sue
