Western: “Know Thyself”
Easter: “Deny Thyself”
Jesus: “Do both. Which is more difficult than doing just one… and each are very difficult to do. I am here to help you do those.”
I can speak truth to myself, but it’s not as effective, powerful as when someone else does.
Belief is foundational, the foundation,
Disarm the lie. Once it is disarmed, when the lie comes, I see it, recognize it, and immediately recall the truth (that counters the lie).
Lies about worthlessness. Lies about lust, or gossip, or discontentment, etc.
The truth will set you free. Knowing truth. People say Jesus is truth.
