It’s Just the Beginning…
What is your faith story? If you are a Christ follower you have a story of how your life was…how you encountered the Gospel…and how you are a new creation in Christ. The point of salvation is not the end of our story; it’s just the beginning!
Jesus is all about life change and the moment we submit to him is the moment our abundant life begins. The greatest life we can have on this earth is one where we are pursuing God and becoming who He wants us to be. Following Jesus and being a student of His teachings is our personal discipleship. All of us are at different points on this journey and the point is not to compare to each other but to make sure we are moving forward. How will you become more like Christ this week? How will you transform you heart and mind to see and live like Him in this world?
2 Peter 1:5-8
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The verse above makes it very clear. We begin with faith and then add to it the attributes of God. How are you doing that in increasing measure? Who are you helping along on that journey?
