Do you know anybody who thinks they are #perfect?  Ironically, #Christian maturity comes with a growing realization of our own imperfection.  Without knowledge of our flaws, how can we grow?  Rather than an excuse to not even try, this should be a call to action.  Our road to perfection starts with a decision.  What comes next?  When we are moving whether it is walking, running, or driving we tend to move in the direction we are looking.  Where should our eyes be focused?

Now before you say that preachers are always asking for #money, remember this site is not asking for anything.  But, #God wants more than your money.  To follow Jesus properly is to give your life to God.  That means everything including time, skills, and more.  Does that mean you have to quit your job and go work at your church?  Most of the time, no.  God wants us out there serving throughout the community.  Is there anything God has asked of you that you did not want to give?  Can He get it done without you?  Who pays a price when that happens?  You’re not hurting God.  What can we learn from Paul’s writings about Epaphroditus about giving, suffering, and healing?

If you are under #quarantine or #lockdown right now, you are probably ready to go.  But, if you are a follower of Christ, how should you go?  Take the example of Timothy in Philippians and use it as a model.  Ask yourself if you are doing God’s will.  Are you ready to go despite the cost?  Are you living for Christ or yourself?  How should we emulate the working relationship between Paul and Timothy?  How do you handle the ‘wait and see’ time?

What does the Bible say about how Christ followers are to respond in times of #crisis, like right now with the spreading of #Covid19?  Do we wallow and murmur or are we still supposed to be joyful?  How can we accomplish that?  The first step has to do with our tongue or words.  Step two is about refining of what?  Steps one and two are crucial to step three, which is challenging the culture.  What then are we to dispel?  And whom should we spotlight?  These steps are the how but what is the why?  Jesus, Others, Yourself

#Jesus Christ died to #free us from our sins, but did He free us from all dependency?  Is the Christian life hard?  Is it possible to follow Christ without depending on God?  What does it mean for God to work on you, in you, and through you?  How are we to allow God to align our will with His?  Once our will is rightly aligned, from where do we get the power to carry out the actions?  Why is it important to be motivated to do God’s will for God’s pleasure rather than for ours or other’s pleasure?

#Trust and #obey for there’s no other way to be #happy in #Jesus.  That’s a line from an old hymn we used to sing all the time.  These days, we are being asked to obey a lot of sources, sometimes conflicting.  If you are in sync with God’s law , you will not be in conflict with man’s law except when those man made laws are immoral.  But, what does the Bible say about obedience?  Should we obey out of fear or love?  Which of these has a more consistent outcome?  Can it be both?  What does Paul mean when he tells the Philippians to ‘work out’ their salvation with fear and trembling?  Hint:  think miner.  Also, fear of what?
