Breaking the Line
Jesus died on the cross, took all our sins - past, present, and future - when we believed. He gave us a new spirit joined to Holy Spirit so that we may have eternal life, righteousness with God, and experience His peace, grace, mercy and glory here on earth.
It is impossible for you and I to live above the line; we cannot sustain it by our own effort or work. It is only by Jesus and His death on the cross, that we, through our new spirit from God, can experience mercy and grace for ourselves and others.
We have the choice to believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior. When we follow him in obedience, allowing Him access to all the parts of mind, will and emotions, He can change and transform us. This change called sanctification, leads us deeper into transformation from flesh into a true reflection of God's design for our life - one of love, grace, and mercy for those around us. This is THE critical step in becoming the Ultimate Coach.

Dear Lord, thank you for bringing to my attention how you designed me for greater things which I have yet to experience. Lord, I admit and repent from a life of flesh and sin, for operating outside your will for my life. Lord, I wish to repent and change my life in accordance with how you have designed me. Lord, I have done many things outside of your will; things that have hurt me and have damaged others in my life.
I admit I have been trying to get my needs met through people, achievements, and possessions. I now give up on my self-sufficiency and do hereby commit my life unconditionally into your hands. I give up all my rights and expectations, and I give you permission to make me into the kind of person You want me to be.
I believe Your Word that I have been crucified with Christ and have been buried and raised with Him into newness of Life. I claim resurrection life as my life. I have been raised in heavenly places, and I believe that I now am seated at the right hand of the Father.
I choose, as an act of my will, to claim Christ is my life, my power, and mu identity. I thank You that my identification with Christ makes me totally acceptable, and that all of my needs are met through Christ Jesus.
I yield myself totally to the indwelling Christ for obedience. Do with me whatever You choose. Glorify and manifest Your Son in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
