Luke 17:20-24 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” Then He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them. For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day.”

It has been a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs. We have had extraordinary occasions to choose between strength and weakness, good and evil, love and hate, belief and unbelief, growth and stagnation. But, honestly, we only have one real choice of either Spirit or flesh.

February 15, 2021. It is a dangerous thing to be out from under authority. I have given authorities in your life for your good. It is vital to submit to those under whom you have placed yourself. No one should be uncovered. Submit to those shepherds because they have to give an account for you, especially in the Church. A good shepherd works towards the healing and wholeness of their flock. Be a good sheep – smile!
