Finding Yourself

December 1, 2017 Leave a comment

So many of us are trying to find ourself. I think this is where our midlife crises come from. We wake up one day not knowing who we are.

One buys a sports car.

Another trades in a wife.

Yet another quits his job and hikes the Appalachian Trail.

The problem is that we are lost.

All of us. We were born lost.

And we want to be found.

The cool thing is that we have someone who wants to find us.

We don’t have to worry about finding ourselves.

In Christ, we are found. In fact, we are more found in Jesus than in anything we can try to find ourself with.

Then life is incredibly more fulfilling than we thought possible.

Celebrating Gluttony

Tomorrow we celebrate gluttony.

Yet, gluttony is not celebrated in the Bible.

Unless……

You hunger and thirst for righteousness.

You taste and see that the Lord is good.

Your Limitations

God has no limitations. And He made you in His image.

The only limits you have are those that you place on yourself through your behavior, actions and attitude.

Quit limiting yourself.

As Little As Possible

That’s a common answer when I ask someone what they’re up to.

How would we answer if God asked us?

What if we our answer was as much as possible?

your way to a good vacation.

Or a good career.

Or a good marriage.

Or a relationship with Jesus.

It has to be intentional.

I Don’t Like That

You probably told your parents that.

Your kids probably told you that. Or they will.

There will be a hundred ways they do this.

We tell them what we want. They tell us they don’t like it.

We do the same thing with God.

And. He. Doesn’t. Care. If. We. Like. It.

He just provides the way to overcome it.

That’s Just The Way I Am

This is one of the most popular excuses for all sorts of behavior.

Anger

Worry

Pretty serious sin

After all, it’s just how God made me.

Well, ok, but we need to realize we’re pretty flawed, tainted by the sin of our original forefather and mother.

And it’s no excuse.

He gives us an out.

He gives us His Son.
