On this site I will be doing studies with the intention of helping you become more like Jesus and bringing you closer to God. The books I use have been a great inspiration to me. The content will change every week, moving on to the next chapter/section.
The current study began on June 3 and will run for 10 weeks. Please take time to really think about what you are reading, and be assured I will be learning right along with you. Enjoy!!
Sometimes when you talk about the 'soul' people get confused, as they do not completely understand just what the 'soul' is. However, all of us totally understand what our 'will' is. So, take a look at the definitions below and realize that your 'soul' is your 'will.'
'Will' = Something desired. A choice or determination of one having authority or power. Restraint, self-command, self-control, self-discipline, self-government, self-mastery, desire, wish, disposition, inclination, appetite, passion, choice, determination.
'Soul' = A person's total self. An active or essential part. The moral and emotional nature of human beings. Spiritual or moral force. An actuating cause of an individual life. The quality that arouses emotion and sentiment.
As you read through this book, replace the word 'soul' with the word 'will,' then read it again. And remember this is exactly what God requires of us....our 'will.'
This study will be taken from the book entitled 'Experiencing The Depths Of Jesus Christ' by Jeanne Guyon. As we work through this, please feel free to send comments and thoughts my way by using the Contact page. Thank you for your time.
Welcome to one of the greatest Christian writings of all time.
"While we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.' - 2 Corinthians 5:4
'We do not lost heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.' - 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
