“When Jesus Breathes”
When fear seizes you:
- It imprisons you
- It controls you
- It poisons you
- It destroys you
When Jesus comes to you:
- He gives you peace
- He gives you grace
- He gives you the Holy Spirit
When Jesus breathes on you:
- He fills you
- He gives you life
- He empowers you
- He sends you
Jesus sends us to be grace givers and peacemakers in the power of the Spirit.
When you feel fear, just breathe.
