How Bad Do You Want It?
Sometimes it's good to do a bit of a spiritual health check! We need to ask ourselves if we are giving God our best, or just the leftovers? Do we prioritize time with Him or is it an afterthought? Growing in our Christian walk happens just like in every other realm - through applied effort.
The Message Bible puts it this way:
“Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention." Matthew 7:13-14
Notes from last week's message entitled, "Faith Focus Part 4"
God is merciful
Relax and follow God - He loves you and is not against you.
We need to understand who we are in Christ and stop identifying with what we werein the flesh.
We are new creations!
Scriptures: Romans 8:12-16
