Why do you look to your left or right for guidance, when the Holy Spirit dwells in you?
An Ascension of Commitment is a reassessment of what’s important to us. For many of us, self desires and career goals secure top priority, with family, friends/community following, and maybe, just maybe, an hour for God on Sunday morning or when really needing His help. Instead, we strive to ascend God to first place, Providing Our Worldly Emotions Rest…in Him! Everyday, we are getting to know our Father, understanding how Jesus is Lord and Savior, and utilizing the Holy Spirit as our Helper. We know that this is the only way to allow God to, well, be our God! Lastly, we strive to honor Him through our interactions with family, career, community, and self.
GOD. FAMILY. CAREER. COMMUNITY. SELF.
If a being is truly our god, we submit to their authority and honor them through obedience.

The biblical flow of leadership extends from Jesus Christ to the husband, directed into the wife, and poured out upon the children.
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What, therefore, God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:5-6
We are to honor our God in all that we do.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
We must strive daily to submit ourselves to Him as good and faithful servants.
“But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves. You are those who have stood by Me in My trials;” Luke 22:26-29
Humility is one of the greatest displays of P.O.W.E.R. in Him.
At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:1-4
