When You Belong to Christ {Podcast #704}

If all your thoughts on any given day were recorded and transcribed, how would it read?

More importantly, how would those thoughts line up with Scripture? Would you be able to flip open your Bible and say, “Yep, this is a truth!” or would you more likely struggle to find a biblical principle that supports that way of thinking?

With as much time as I spend teaching the Word, it really is amazing how often I find my thoughts filled with shame messages shaping a twisted perspective about who I am in Christ and how God’s promises are as true for me as they are for you. Maybe you feel the same way too.

When You Belong to Christ, Podcast #704

Well, friend, it’s time to circle the wagons on our thought life and carve out a new way of thinking and therefore living. Join me for this episode of the More to Be Podcast as we study Romans 8 together. This powerful chapter paints a picture of what it means to think biblically and live transformed as an overflow of belonging to Christ. Sister, we don’t have to be dominated by the flesh, for the invitation stands before us to be led by the Spirit, embracing our full identity as God’s beloved child and experiencing the overwhelming victory secured for us by Christ.

By the way, this episode is part of the Let Go and Live: A Vision for Breakthrough Bible study, which you can get access to as a member of the Sisterhood. If you would prefer to watch a video of this episode instead of listening to it (hello, learning styles) and download all the related study resources, join us in the Sisterhood.

Truths to Remember

We quote the verses that feel good, but what about the ones that are for our good. – Elisa

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.

We need to flip our mindset about suffering. Every day that doesn’t go right is actually normal. Every day without suffering is God’s extravagant grace. – Elisa

You are already chosen. {More to Be Podcast, Episode #704}

Everything that is not suffering is the blessing. – Elisa

Those “who are in” Christ Jesus. Once in, we can be separated from Him. – Elisa

Surrender all to God's great purposes.

Will we let the Holy Spirit led us? – Elisa

We have the the Spirit of God living in us, but are we being led by the Spirit. – Elisa

The Holy Spirit will not dominate. But our flesh will choose to dominate us. We have a choice. – Elisa


God lead me by Your power and love. – Elisa

God chose us and called us to embrace our salvation. – Elisa

When you belong to Christ, nothing can separate you from God's love.

Brave is a way of living with confidence knowing that overwhelming victory is already secured in Christ. – Elisa

We quote the verses that feel good, but what about the ones that are for our good?

At the beginning of each month, you’ll get the content through the Sisterhood and then you can set aside a few hours a month (yep, a month, not a week) to study the key passage and embrace the process of Scripture memory, prayer, and reflection. 

So what are you waiting for?

This is the year, sister, to let go of whatever is holding you back from the life God designed for you to live — a life in which you become brighter and more beautiful, more like Jesus, through a fresh encounter with Him and His Word.
