Life is all about making a mark. Even Paul says that everyone is running a race to obtain a prize. He remarks that he runs his race with certainty
(1 Corinthians 9:24-27). We believe the quality of our lives change one step at a time, with each step resulting in less of us and more of Christ.
1. Believe (John 3:16)Jesus paid the price for our sin and separation from the Father. Turning our lives over to His lordship is our first life-changing step which results in our eternal security in heaven.
2. Belong (Ephesians 2:10)Abilities, skills, and talents reside inside every created individual. God promised and placed these inside all of us for a purpose – so through these abilities Christ would be glorified and people would come to know Him. The opportunities with the church and community to belong through volunteering are endless. Don’t sit on the sideline – get in the game.
3. Become (Romans 12:1-2)Apprenticing under Jesus – living out His Word and walking in His truths. Becoming is more what we “do” than what we “know.” Do our lives represent that which we see in Scripture? Is there a distinction between followers of Christ and those far from Christ in word, deed and lifestyle? When we “become”, our aim is Christ – not our opinions and reasoning, but Christ alone.
