Living Above the Line
Living above the line is centered on abiding in Christ. As we trust in the finished work of the cross, allowing Holy Spirit to transform us, we move into greater dependency on God and see ourselves and our abilities in increasing humility in contrast to self-dependency and pride. This does not mean we will never experience trials, hurts and tribulations; we live in a fallen world, but we depend on God for meeting our needs. We are free from the prison of our flesh and old corrupted beliefs systems that tormented us. We live a life of victory.
As a result, we experience the fruit of the Spirit: love, peace, patience, joy, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. When we are abiding in Christ, trusting Him for all our needs, we are a blessing to others.
The coach understands the role of a servant leader, one who puts others first and submits himself to God in all relationships and circumstances.
For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death. But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
