What do you do when you face opposition? What is your way of working through trials in your life? Do you give up, and quit, or do you muster up the faith, and continue forward?
These kind of “B-Team” players, are people like you and me, who play a role in the shaping of God’s Kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven.
How do you choose people to hire in your company? How do you represent yourself when seeking employment? These leadership events that occurred in Acts 6 are enlightening enough to our faith, that they model Godly character for us to live by.
So often we look at Acts 2 merely as the beginning of the church, which is important, but we can easily miss the character of God displayed through His supernatural generosity, His supernatural boldness, leading us to supernatural repentance, and creates a supernatural community as a result.
We look to the character of God so that we have a firm foundation to stand on when all around us is crumbling. Join us each week as we walk through the Book of Acts together.
Comparison is a killer. It kills your joy, it kills relationships, it kills marriages, it kills your purposes in the world.
We spend so much time on wasted words. It’s so easy to think of the negative rather than the positive. Complaining is our default mechanism because of our sin nature. We can learn to quit on complaining by analyzing our complaining habits. Join us as we walk through Philippians 2 together.
You don’t need to keep making excuses, because no one cares how good your excuses are. Jesus tells a story in Luke 14 where people give excuses instead of coming to the Master’s banquet. He is saying that our excuses have no place in the Kingdom of God. In order to grow in faith, we need to quit making excuses.
When we “excuse” our way out of sin, we end up never needing the Savior to forgive us.
Stop saying, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” God has a reason for too much in our lives.
