Jesus taught us the power of coming together. The proverbs remind us that iron sharpens iron. God designed us to live connected – not solo. Knowing all of this should give us reason to reach out and build up those around us.
Always follow Christ first and assure those in leadership around you are striving to live more like Christ. But leave room for mistakes – no one is perfect.
Think about the time and the quality of time you give to God on a daily basis and compare that to the call to sacrifice our lives like Christ sacrificed for us.
Let’s work hard to be more like Christ. Take a breath before that next critical moment and ask God to fill you with His spirit and wisdom to make the best decision.
The free gift of faith, however, comes with a requirement… to love other people like God loves us. To give them all of you by serving them with your abilities, your attention, and your resources.
Christian maturity comes of age as we live into Christ’s instruction to be God’s living representatives in this world. We learn that waiting is active, not passive.
Christ taught us how to move through worry. He said to to keep our eyes, our hope, and our hearts tied tightly to Him and His teachings.
