God’s Grace – Our Obedience

Do you sometimes have the experience where you hear the same thing, from different sources, all at about the same time? When that happens, I try to be very attentive, recognizing that God may be trying to draw my attention to something.

Values-Driven Living

One of the current catch phrases is “values driven”, as in “values driven leadership” or “a values driven organization”. As Christians, we certainly don’t want to get caught up in something because it is trendy. But, the reality is human beings are inherently values driven. I think God intentionally made us this way. Value simply means “the degree of importance of something”. So, to be values driven means to think and act on the basis of what is most important to us. Sometimes, it doesn’t seem to be this way because people say they don’t have enough time for what is really important.

Are You Centered?

Last month, we looked at an overview of our church’s personal discipleship model, the wheel illustration. Over the next few months, we will take a closer look at the components of this illustration to consider how we can apply the biblical truths represented to our own lives.

Running Rules for a Strong Finish: Rule #4: Fix our Eyes on Jesus 

Steve Cox“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  Hebrews 12:2 The word in the original language for “fix our eyes” in this passage means, to intentionally look away from one thing so as to be able to focus on another. 

Running Rules For a Strong Finish: Rule #3: Running Involves a Commitment to Endure - To “Abide Under” the Load

Steve Cox“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1

Running Rules for a Strong Finish: Rule #2: Take Action To Be Prepared

Steve CoxLast month, I began a series of articles based on the Biblical teaching that living the Christian life is analogous to running a race. The first teaching focused on accepting the race that God lays out for each of us, and not getting caught up in comparing our race to others, wishing we were running a different race.

I know a number of people that love running.  Personally, I have a hard time with it.  I am not a natural runner and it is a real struggle for me.  I think that is why I am so fascinated with the passages in the New Testament that tell us living the Christian life is like running a race.  I can readily relate to the difficulty and the challenge involved.
