But…if God’s Word is to be believed and trusted with everything we are and have, then EVEN pandemics have their role.
Broken, undeserved, headed in the wrong direction- are all terms that shout out our desperate need for help. They describe our situation to a “T”.
God is not after only a few cosmetic changes like how you part your hair or whether you like chocolate or strawberry ice cream. More importantly, He changes our fundamental motivation for why we do what we do. As we adopt his plan and his strategy for life, everything changes. Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you,” (Matthew 6:33).
I grew up in a home where the things of God were given only intellectual ascent and never personally applied or taken serious. It was like knowing it was indeed true but pretending to live like it wasn’t.
A transformed life is not about me, ultimately, it is about God and other people.
Time always tells the truth!
All of us have goals we want to accomplish, others have changes we must make in our lives. Some are desperately needed, others are things we would like to accomplish.
I had no idea, you could say I was clueless! What did it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?
Too often, I have seen church leaders think they are above the necessity of daily practicing the spiritual disciplines of prayer, love, and diving into the Bible, and realizing that they too need to confess their sins.
To actively live out our faith requires us to change our point of view from a selfish “me-first” mentality to a God centered “others first” pattern of thinking.
