Hunger for God

Hunger is a sign of good health. When we get sick we often experience a loss of appetite. Similarly to be spiritually hungry is a sign of spiritual health. In the natural world we get hungry by not eating but in God’s Kingdom we get hungry by eating. The more we fill ourselves with God’s word, Christian testimony, music, books etc. the more our appetite and desire for the things of God will grow.

The Wisdom of God

When we receive Christ we are set apart for God, we are called to live holy lives. Our lives are enriched in Jesus, our speech and knowledge, so that we will not lack any spiritual gift. And so, disciples must have godly wisdom because it is a gift of grace. Being a disciple and having godly wisdom go together. But, what is godly wisdom? Why do we need it? How do we get it?

Valuing Jesus Over Everything

What do we place value on in life? What do we value above Jesus? Unfortunately for many of us there are quite a few things in life that seem to take precedence over Jesus. Maybe it is our jobs, family, car, food, money, electronics, music, acceptance, reputation, or quite possibly even our physique? The list goes on and on. According to the Bible there is nothing that we are supposed to value over Jesus.

Stretcher Bearers

Healing is part of God’s love for us. It is part of His restorative plan for His people. Jesus is the Healer. The many accounts of healing are not just to tell us it happened but to help us experience Jesus as continuing healer. And so we can identify with the men who felt compelled to bring their paralysed friend before Jesus for they knew that in Jesus healing could be found. The paralysed man was healed that day because of the faith of his friends. They believed that Jesus could heal him and so they acted on that belief, persevering through the obstacles and placing their trust in Jesus.

Stop Grumbling

What is so bad about grumbling once in a while? Is it not okay to occasionally simply vent about life? However, one of the main problems is that when we complain we place ourselves at the centre of the universe. We make life about us, when nothing could be further from the truth. By not complaining and being obedient to not complaining, we will become more spiritually mature and we will represent God in a pleasing way. Not complaining is counter-cultural to the world around us. People will notice it and it will be as obvious as walking outside and seeing the stars in the sky! We serve our purpose when we are lights in a dark world because those lights help guide people to the truth, to the God who gives us a life worth living.
