Let Christ do the heavy lifting in your life

Like trying to transplant a small tree with bare hands, trying to become a better person can be almost imposable on our own. We can only clear away some of the dirt .

But when we abide in Christ we can take these problems to the Father and like using a 4x4 to pull out a tree stump, God gives us the power of his Holy Spirit.

Who is able to rip sin out by the roots, to change, rearrange and remove the negative parts of our life that we ourselves cannot.

God prunes away the dead things in our lives and replants our harts into fertile ground so that we can grow and bear fruits of righteousness unto eternal life.

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, (Romans 8:1-3)
