You can relax around people who have good character
And people who have lack of character you have to be guarded all the time because you don’t know what they’re up to.
But we can count on God’s character all the time!
- Why Can We Be Saved & Not Really Change?
- Why do we repeat family patters?
- Why do people get trapped?
- Why do people get stuck?
One of the keys in the Kingdom (and how we want to live as believers) is, Jesus wants to grow people with whom He can bestow trust.
Luke 16:10 – He who is faithful in little will be faithful in much […]
God WANTS to trust us with more! More resources, more relationships with more breakthroughs.

Our human spirit (without God) is lifeless
We are 3 parts as Human Beings – Spirit, Soul & Body
Modern/Secular Phsycolgy says we (human beings) are only a dichotomy, a 2 part – Soul & Body
In Christianity and in what te Bible says and Holy Spirit has made real to us is that we are 3 part – Spirit, Soul & Body
The 3 “T’s” pf the message
The Sin (Old) Nature Is In Charge – Before Christ
Self-Will runs the show. “I want what I want and I want it now”
But we need Jesus!
In Salvation our spirit is made Alive!
Now the “Command Center” can change
From self-will being in charge, now Jesus can be in charge and we are led by the Him (The Holy Spirit)
Is God the co-pilot or is he the pilot?
His Presence brings freedom!
Ephesians 2:1-5 (NKJV)
By Grace Through Faith
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the [a]course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh,
15:46 The true definition of lust…
Lust = The quest for control
- I want what I want when I want it.
Lust is a base for selfishness and “me first” mindset.
Eph 2:3 con’t
fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).

Let this term become a practical reality to you, with this term, change becomes limitless for us.
The term is SOULWORK
Our spirit is fully redeemed and fully born again but what is getting an overhaul is our soul.
2 Stong Points about Soulwork
THE MORE ABUSIVE/HURTFUL OUR LIFE HAS BEEN THE MORE SOULWORK IS UNFAMILIAR

THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN BEING HURT IS RESISTING HEALING
Why? Because once you’re hurt and own it. It will take over.
Being hurt will change your personality. Hurt will change your worship life. Hurt will change how you see people.
It’s not that we don’t get hurt, its what we do with it. Can Jesus have it or are you going to hide it?
Personal rights to being hurt can get in the way of righteousness. Hurt can get in the way of surrender.
You can have all the facts in the world of being right being hurt but those facts will never heal you.
Will you let Jesus work in your soul? Are you willing to God into your soul to be transformed?
It takes Openness, Graciousness,and Diligence to do Soulwork
