The true believer is the one who bases all their life," IT ALL", upon Christ, with full trust and assurance by faith and obedience.
Are you devoted to Christ or a slave to your misguided will and to the manipulation of others? Did you know that as growing and mature Christians, we have to realize that we belong exclusively to Christ? If you are a leader or pastor in a church, this is even more essential!

Thus, at some point in our spiritual development, we have to comprehend the magnitude of who Christ is and who we are in and to Him.
Enables us to rely on the Lord for all things in our life.
