Topic: Guarding the Inner Life

-Somethings are not for public audiences… things we give generously, prayers, commitments (painful), sacrifices, etc. These are/should be maintained for personal growth.

-Somethings are good for encouraging others, but we should not glory in our own generosity/ obedience. It is by Christ grace and mercy that either of these are possible.

Scripture: James 1:19-21  Be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. Doer of the word.. not a hearer only. Have not vain religion. (paraphrase)

Reflection: Our hidden lives will manifest themselves anyways. (of our inner lives.)

Night Study:

Soul–> mind, will, emotions. Your soul is not born again– your will has to be submitted to God. Your mind must be renewed.

Deliverance–>more progressive than instantaneous.

–Today, was a “super-ill” day for me. There was a little bit of a fuss this morning over nothing. Someone tried to place blame on me for something I didn’t do. That got me a one way ticket to the “Prayer room”. (Prayer room- place of disciplinary action) I was highly upset and ready to leave this morning.
