Experience the Life you were meant to live.

Here you stand, friend, on the ground of grace! It's time to walk this miraculous territory of Christ's love for you and Life in you, which is your inheritance and identity as a believer. Through this material, you'll discover more of what the Bible means when it speaks of our spiritual union with Jesus Christ, our new identity in him, and how we live in light of that amazing reality. As you grow in your understanding of his work on your behalf, you'll "grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18).

Our focus is your relationship with God. That relationship, we believe, is the starting point for us and the only way we can begin to have healthy, honest relationships with others. It is our eager expectation that you will learn more of who Jesus is and who you are in him. We hope you'll experience the Life you were made to live!

Guest author Sandra Adcock

Guest author Sandra Adcock is a Bent Tree member who utilizes her personal blog to expound on her journey of Life in Christ. The following story was originally published at sandraadcock.com. As Sandra likes to say, "Trusting in Jesus, you have more treasure than pockets."

Growing up, my grandmother would always say, “You can’t get in the water until you know how to swim.” Seems harmless. But, can you hear the fear? The perfectionistic mantra? Know how to, before you risk.

The Voice of Fear

I’m convinced the Evil One uses perfectionism against us; trying to keep us from living the life Jesus has for us. The Spirit initiates a great idea. Opens the door to a new opportunity. Calls you out into the unknown. A grand adventure. And what happens next?

Images, of what-could-be, light up your mind. A thrill, like shooting stars, fly through your body. Nothing like a fired up believer to send Satan into a panic. So, he incites the voices of perfection. You’re not good enough. Who do you think you are? Suddenly, fear takes the reigns...
