You were owed Hell, but you got Heaven: the root of Humility in Jesus Christ

Few things in the Christian life are harder to grow but more important to have than¬†humility. This is sometimes even harder (and yet even more important) as a young person. We live in a world that exalts pride as good, and tells us continually what we “deserve” out of life, out of friends, and out of relationships. But what the world is telling us couldn’t be farther from the Truth. God says, “Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, forGod opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you…”¬†1 Peter 5:5-6.

Do You Desire God?

To be a disciple or follower of Christ, Jesus said that you must first sit down and count the cost (Luke 14:28). The Christian life is by no means the easy life. It is a life of joy, no doubt, but it is joy in knowing the Savior of your soul. Consider today if you have ever counted the cost of being a follower of Jesus Christ, and if not, ask him right now for “his terms of peace” — and the Bible promises that he will hear and answer your prayer (Romans 10:9). Do you desire God?

It’s All About Christ

Here’s a video from Paul Washer that we watched this past Sunday Morning @ Cross-Training. It rocked us. Hope it rocks you. It is, indeed, all about Christ…
