We should be motivated for the lost and motivated by our new life. We should be motivated to be Jesus ambassador.
We are an intersection between the physical and spiritual world. Even though our bodies are temporary tents, we are being renewed day by day preparing us to take possession of a greater dwelling in heaven. So while on earth we are called to serve Jesus to the best of our ability.
Three things that motivate generosity (a Christian Virtue). Let it be your legacy.
We are often trying to carry too much. Here are three things we need to put down and three things we need to pick up.
Sex is God’s Idea. God created the world, he created us, and he created sex, but it needs to have boundaries or it can be very damaging. Sex is beautiful and can glory God in a marriage.
We have deep desires and passions and we need to look to Jesus to fulfill them. In your marriage chose ministry over manipulation. Make some practical rules about how you resolve conflict before you are in one.
The cultural view of marriage is a magical feeling, but we need to understand it is a covenant. A strong marriage is united with God and with effort produces fruit abundant.
Through the great story line of the universe (creation-fall-redemption-restoration) Jesus completes us and we are the continuation of the story.
Though this world is broken we can be reconciled with God. In that reconciliation we are being transformed and restored. In the same restoration we will be fully restored to a glorified state when Jesus the perfect king and judge returns. We are not home yet.
This is the story of the Bible, the biggest story ever told. God created an unbroken world and it is no longer the way it should be because of sin. Jesus has redeemed us at a great cost purchasing you from slavery. How grateful are you? How does this effect your life?
