“How do we overcome the cultural pull toward immediate ego gratification? We pursue God with all of our hearts until his desires become our desires. “Paul told us to “let the Holy Spirit guide our lives. Then we won’t do what our sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires” (Gal. 5:16 – 17 NLT).” Excerpt From: Groeschel, Craig. “Altar Ego.” Zondervan, 2013. iBooks.
When we know better prayerfully we will do better. We are to live with patience, integrity, gratitude, showing honor, boldness; by boldly speaking-the Word do God, prayers-without ceasing and obedience-to th will of God). Altar Ego is a swift kick to get us to refocused our life as it is today. Page by page it shows us who we are, so that we will be God’s workmanship created in his image.
