When you're filled with the Spirit, He governs your choices. Similarly, when you're filled with the knowledge of God's will, your choices reflect godly wisdom and understanding.
The Bible tells us that today we must live with the goal of honoring God and bearing fruit as we seek His will.
The suffering leader sounds like an un-American idea. In our paradigm, leaders flourish, whether on Wall Street or in the house church. Even in the spiritual realm, we are susceptible to expectations that flourishing leaders have flourishing lives—yet we know better.
When we trust God to guide us, He, too, can diffuse our anxieties by giving us clear guidance.
Regular church attendance should never be viewed as something you do to gain God’s merit. We are not saved by good works. Instead, it should provide the catalyst for spiritual growth.
The Lord isn’t waiting for us to do some big, impressive task for Him; He’s simply calling us to obey Him one small step at a time. Don’t miss the great adventure God has for you. Even when His ways seem unreasonable, follow Him faithfully, and your destiny will unfold before your eyes.
Overwhelming odds can make cowards of us all. Because there is so much to be done, we can easily lose heart and do nothing at all. Because there are so many people in the world to reach, it is easy to forget that God wants to use us to touch those within our sphere of responsibility. Have you ever felt like that? I have too.
