March 30, 2009 This Weeks Scripture Reading: John Chapters 12-13
Memorize: John 3:7 “You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again.”
Over the past few weeks kids have been coming into church pumped up after reading God Word and committing key passages to memory. I have even noticed it with some of the leadership. God is so good and powerful to transform lives. In saying that, the struggle for many is when we start making progress in our physical and spiritual walk we become lazy revert to the old ways of doing things, the old ruts and habits. We get discouraged because we want to be spiritually mature now, and to loose the pounds tomorrow. “News Flash” that is not reality, life is a marathon and not a sprint, everyday that you commit to knowing God and living for Him, everyday that you commit to get in shape things are changing. Don’t get comfortable in life’s victories but continuously push and pursue all the Lord has in store for you. Then you will truly understand what it means to be spiritually and physically fit.
