The meetings of the church are not for consumers, but for people looking for service. They look to serve before, during, and after their meetings together. They search for someone to encourage to live in Christ. They meet with other Christians not to receive, but to give. They have the heart of God.

With God there is “no variation or the slightest hint of change” Jas 1.17. Neither should his people show weakness in faith or wariness before God’s purpose and mission.

A hundred years from now, the likelihood is that no one will remember you. But if you are a child of God, he will remember, not only for a hundred, but for an eternity. So live so that he will know you then. No one else will care.

God’s way is the way of truth. To learn and know God’s way is to walk in his truth. “Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name” Psa 86.11.

Life is better lived with the grain, rather than attempting to cut across it. Life with the grain means living according to God’s wisdom.

God especially values the little…

God especially values the little people. They are the buttresses of his kingdom. They don’t make headlines, but they do make things happen.
