What R We Doing Here?
A life fully engaged becomes more like the activity or person you're engaged with. Total devotion is often referred to as worship... and it changes us. If we truly let our worship change us, the world will certainly change with us, too. How badly do we want to change our world?
It's hard to submit your will to God, let alone to another person. We want what we want. At its worst, we don't care who we hurt to get what we're striving for. God loves us and sent his Son to show us how to do that very thing. Is your true happiness really as near as valuing someone else's happiness more than your own?
We continue with Part II of Pastor Dave's message on Getting Stronger in Christ as we consider the CONTEXT for gathering that strength. What should be the atmosphere around my growth? What should guide my pursuit of that strength? Fear? Rule-keeping? Pride? Comparing myself to the next person and their pursuit? Could it be that God is simplifying our pursuit for us?
We are called to a purpose. Becoming all that God has made us to be requires our attention and our IN-tention. Our faith is complete in Christ, but our faith moment is only our beginning. Today can be your launch point into a much more meaningful life and joyful life
We exist for a reason. We each have a destiny set deep within us, and it's a destiny that involves and effects many others. Yet, isolation is all around us and we are left hungry for human interaction and struggle to discover our true purpose. We are made to be together... to work together... to thrive together. To respond to that is the first step in figuring out why we are here.
