A Lotta "Why-Don't-Ya's" - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series - Arnie Cole


Bible Verses: Galatians 3:2-3

“Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now going to be made complete by the flesh?"

Romans 8:1-2

“Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death."

Reflect and Respond:

What are some of the "Why-Don't-Ya's" that you struggle with? How has Christ set you free from your self-condemnation?


Father, I trust that you have given me Your Spirit and will complete the work You began in my life. Help me to rest in that truth and live in Your freedom. Amen.

I need this, I am under construction by God(work in progress).
Having grown up as a preacher's kid, there were a lot of rules that made life overwhelming. It took over 45 years to let go of that legal mindset. The book, Jesus Calling, has really helped. It helps me better at night.
When the condemnation comes, God reminds I am free in Christ Jesus. He is my righteousness!
Thank you Lord Jesus, for perfecting us! So happy the Lord used this to remind you. You are loved!
Oh, I'm so thankful this was helpful to you, Carol! We're in this together!!! You and me and..... and Jesus!!!
Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone, Karmin. Learning to rest in His work is a daily process! You are loved!!!
I am overflowing with Why Dont Ya's. I find it so easy to be so hard on myself. Thank you for the reminder that God has this! We ARE complete in Him.
Carol couldn't have said it better! I'm right there with trying to do everything on my own to be good enough. This video is so helpful! Thank You!
I work so hard to be made complete by the flesh. This is such a great reminder that we did not receive the Spirit by the works of the flesh. We have been set free from the law and trying to be good enough on our own. Thank you Lord that we can, and you want us to live in Your freedom. I'm an auditory learner, so this video is so helpful!
