Sharing God's grace to walk in fullness of identity and power

26 Simple Comparisons Between Law and Grace to Ensure Your Freedom (part 4/4)

EnsureyourfreedomWhy do we spend so much time talking about either having a Law- or a Grace mindset?

Because beliefs that are based on a law-mindset keeps you from living in your full potential. It limits you to walk in fullness of love, freedom and power.

We run the risk of having a law-mindset when we make conclusions based on merely human experiences.

Our experiences in life are real, and our emotions are an important part of our existence, but these aren’t necessarily reflective of spirititual Truth.

In fact, much of our beliefs are based on human experiences instead of spirit and truth. And what is not based on spirit and truth keeps us from living in our full potential.

Much of our false beliefs – what we call a law-mindset – stems from conclusions we’ve made based on fleshly interpretations of life.

A grace-mindset, at the other hand, is based on spiritual truths which are found in the Person and the work of Christ.

These last 26 simple comparisons will help you discern between beliefs that are based on human experiences versus beliefs that are based spirit truth in order to walk in the fullness of all that God has given you.
