I am pleased to introduce to you my friend Sebastian Matthews. Sebastian and his family began attending Forward Church in January 2019. They were familiar with grace and the New Covenant message but they did not know how to actuate grace. After a series of frustrations and a devastating loss, they discovered not only the freedom of grace but the power of grace. God’s influence in our hearts is not just unmerited favor, it’s a power that brings about radical transformation in very radical ways. Sebastian teaches what he’s learned and gives a testimony of how it has given way to incredible fruit in just about every area of his life.
Knowledge doesn't produce transformation. Truth alone doesn't produce transformation. But when you internalize truth to the point of invoking an emotional response, you have engaged true mind renewal that can and will produce deep, healthy, profound and lasting transformation. So how do you emotionally invest in the Word of God? Look at Joshua 1:8.
Use these passages as a tool for renewing your mind to the truth that you are seated with Christ in Heavenly places and He dwells within you in this Earth. Personalize these passages. See yourself through your new identity in Christ. Meditate on each one until you not only understand what they mean and you feel the associated emotions. While we don't live by emotions, we don't really believe a truth that we don't feel. Use these passages to become convinced of and confident in your new creation reality. All Scriptures are from the Amplified Version.
