Lay it Down
ReActions Speak Louder Than Words - Part 3
Often times our reactions to life events are caused by a desire to control all the outcomes of life. Jesus offers you a standing invitation to put down burdens you were never intended to carry. Come to me all you who are weak and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Confidence in God
So many Jesus followers react with GREAT OFFENSE and DEFENSE when the "non-Jesus" world wrongs or offends them. However, this is the exact OPPOSITE of what Jesus invites us to do. Today, we learn that if we have confidence that GOD IS IN CONTROL, we will be freed up to REACT with uncanny love...and ultimately be more effective in the mission that Jesus has given us.
Guilt, Anger, Greed, Jealousy
What’s on the inside eventually shows up on the outside. That’s why it’s important to learn to guard our hearts and manage our emotions.
The DRIFT to Legalism
Nobody likes it when people act like legalistic...yet, we are all prone to drift into legalism if the right topic comes up. Today, we spend some time in Galatians to learn how to NOT be legalistic while living the life Jesus calls us to live.
Parable of the Sower
Are we willing to set aside our preconceived notions of God and hear what Jesus says? The world looks at some people and thinks, "There's no chance for them." But to Jesus, they are worth a try...and he is willing to GENEROUSLY shower the seed of his word into their hearts. If we are willing to hear, Jesus says that he will bring LIFE into our lives that we could never imagine.
