Part of being a disciple of Christ is the acceptance that believers have everything necessary for living a godly life. This is often times overlooked or completely ignored because despite the fact of having all we need, it is also difficult. Many refuse to grow into maturity by continuing the same blame shifting that Adam perpetrated in Eden. Instead of Adam taking ownership for his crime, he chose to blame God for an inadequate gift in his partner. Believers don’t have that luxury in Jesus. Between Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and the Scripture and the Body of Believers, we have no excuse to blame shift when responsibilities or opportunities come our way. This prevailing trope of human interaction was wrong then and it is still wrong. This in Jesus their is great victory to overcome any of life’s difficulties with poise and nobility, no matter how challenging they are. The first trick in doing so, is acceptance that we his is the truth. We must acceptance Christ’s victory to have it.

MY NAME IS JOSH MCGARY. First, I am a Pastor of a small church in Portland, Oregon named Aletheia Bible Fellowship. We call it ABF. I have been a pastor there for the better part of 20 years. I am very eclectic. What I love, I love loudly and immersively. I have notable collections of toys, funko pops, and vinyl. I also infamously love pop culture, comic books, technology, the arts, psychology and philosophy. https://sleek.bio/joshmcgary View more posts
