Our Wants...Never Satisfied?

Psalm 78:20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? Can he provide flesh for his people.

God wants us to truly appreciate what we have before we go asking for more. He gives good things to His children, and He is willing to give abundantly, but He desires us to learn the real meaning of thankfulness.

Who Do You Think You Are Fooling?

Amos 5:14-15
Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts.

I think we can all agree that we are in danger of falling into the trap of keeping up an outward appearance of religion even though we sometimes abandoned our faith in God. Performing to get the approval of your boss or friends, hiding your failures from your wife or husband, pretending you are faithfully following God’s way when you are not.

God is not so concerned with how you appear on the surface; he sees through your false appearances even if others don’t. God cares about the attitude of your heart.

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” - Winston Churchhill (1874-1965)

Christianity is Unnaturally Popular!

"What's is more important...To be a Disciple of God or to do what seems natural and popular to today's culture?"
Jesus wants us to follow him, but he still desires quality disciples. That level of commitment might mean living, saying and doing things that ruffle some feathers.
As evangelist Billy Graham notes, “It is unnatural for Christianity to be popular."
