Momentum- Live Out Your Divine Purpose! Part 3

The third purpose of your life is to grow up spiritually. The Bible says in Romans 8:29, "God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son … We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him." Romans 8:29 (MSG) You need to understand that you were created to become like Christ.

I want to take a moment to explain this because when you understand it, life will make so much more sense. The bottom line is this – God wants you to grow up spiritually. When you grow up physically, that’s automatic. The reality is that you grew up without even trying. You’re a big boy or a big girl now. But God wants you to grow up spiritually too. You can go through your walk with Christ and stay a spiritual baby. God says I want you to grow up while you’re on earth by growing spiritually. One of the reasons Jesus came to earth was to show us what maturity’s like. You wanna know why that is so needed? Because it's the biggest problem in our culture. Childishness & shallow living are an epidemic in our culture. We are a nation of spiritual babies.
What do I mean? Think of what a baby is. I have 5 children so I can speak authoritatively on this topic. Babies are totally self centered, all about the "I" and the "me." They’re impatient. They don’t know how to wait. I’ve got to have it now! Babies are totally focused on their feelings. They don't think long-term. All of us have a tendency to live according to the same pattern. The Bible reminds us, “Some people have such shallow soil of character that when their emotions wear off and difficulty arrives, there’s nothing to show for it.” Mark 4:17 (Mes) If you're going to grow, you must change your thinking. Philippians 2:5 reminds us,“In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.”

Today, right now, it's time to grow in your walk with Christ! Here are some things that you can do to do just that! Click here

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
