Do you find yourself repeating the same patterns in life where you take a step forward only to end up falling a few steps behind and never advancing?

RTS #10 Does God need to correct your language? On last week’s episode, we said “Don’t subscribe to every voice in your feed” This week’s message is “Don’t subscribe to every voice in your head” Following Jesus is a journey of changing your mind and then changing your ways. Jesus called men everywhere to repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand, He was calling them to change their thinking. There is another element that connects your thoughts to your actions and that is your language. When God calls a man, He will change the way you talk, so watch what you say. Thoughts influence language and language influences actions.
