Average is a calculation that is reached based on what the majority does. The acceptance of average is why the world has no sense of normal. Normal starts with a standard that is attainable by everyone. Average is the standard for which everyone settles!
   The normal Christian life is one that enjoys the promises and benefits of the New Covenant. The average Christian life is one that accepts and is comfortable with far less than God has promised! By accepting average we come to believe that normal is above average, hard to attain, and beyond the reach of the believer!
   God wants you to live the normal Christian life of health, love, peace, and prosperity! He wants you to enjoy all that Jesus died to give! But the normal Christian life is only possible when we allow the grace of God to empower us to do that which is far beyond our natural power. In fact, God says:...the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to a...  (Rom. 4:16)
If the message of grace did not empower you to be the person you want to be, live in the promises of God, and experience a whole new quality of life, it is time to ask, "Is grace really working for me?" Better yet, it's time to connect with the grace of God in truth that always bears fruit!

Blessings to all, the LORD Jesus has come into this world to show us the Father's great love. Above all creation, He chose humanity to make his home with and to call us His friend, lover, and temple. Who can understand this mystery?

"Above all else, guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life." Proverbs 4:23
Our heart beliefs are what give life, or take it away, from our daily lives. Proverbs also tells us that as a man thinks, so is he. So I question. Do my beliefs limit me, or do they empower me?
