This Sunday Wendy blessed us with a message on 'Honouring God'. As we go through this journey we call life, we all experience different blessings and challenges. However, we are all on our way to the same destination - becoming more like Jesus.
Living whole and holy is a response to all that God has blessed us with...We live holy lives to honour God. As we have learnt so far this year, living a holy life is not always easy and we face many challenges. Hebrews 4:16 reminds us to, "fearlessly and confidently draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in good time for every need." It is important to remember that we are not living our lives alone, we are not facing our challenges alone...We have the never-ending grace and mercy that God blesses us with.
Remember, We all have God given appetites and desires, however we can't fulfil these desires without being in a relationship with God. Philippians 2:13: "For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him." God is continually working within our hearts and providing us with opportunities to fulfil our desires in a way that is pleasing to Him.
All the hope you have for changing and your ability to honour God is found in intimacy. By investing in growing our relationship with Him every day gets our focus off our struggles and onto Alimighty God, our Source and Author of life. We choose to use our worldly desires to honour you Lord!
