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

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
