A Personal Invitation
This message is so simple; don’t let it deceive you. This message is also very individual. It’s not just “an invitation” but it is a “personal invitation.”
The only terms you can come to God on are His terms - which is Him giving love to you. It’s so counter-intuitive. We think we’ve got to do something for God but He’s saying “let Me do for you.”
Our Father's Terms of Connection

- Conflict is not bad!
- "He just wants you to invite Him in"
- The connection between grace and humility
- What does pride look like?

Financial/Career Breakthrough, Freedom from Condemnation
The Flesh Profits Nothing
Jesus said "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing.” (Jn. 6:63) Focusing on your performance, your strength, your might, your ability, what you’ve done, and your obedience - profits nothing! Setting your mind on your flesh will not produce righteousness before God because by works of the law NO flesh will be justified. (Rom. 3:20) Similarly, setting your mind on your obedience will not even produce true righteous living because it is actually through walking by the Spirit - setting your mind on His performance, His obedience, and what He has accomplished on our behalf - that we will not gratify the desires of the flesh. (Gal. 5:16) We cannot please God apart from faith (Heb. 11:6) and those who walk by the flesh cannot please God (Rom. 8:8). Said plainly, those who are in the flesh cannot walk in faith! Focusing on the flesh simply sabotages faith. Just as Jesus said "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing.”
