Leaven: an element that produces an altering or transforming influence. – to permeate with an altering or transforming element.
And Jesus said to them, “Watch out and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Matthew 16:6 NASB
Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Matthew 16:12 NASB
Who or what is your leaven? How and where do you spend your day, your free time? Who do you spend your social time with and where? Look around you. What environment and what people are influencing your life?
My hope is that the Holy Spirit is your leaven, the transforming power of God in you. That you are also being encouraged through the church, the people of God. These two factors will puff you up to be able to handle the blows the world sends your way so you may rise to the fullness of Christ in you for His glory, purpose and will.
🌹Surrender to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit in you.
Continually Seeking Him,
