This week we will be reading and studying Chapter 7 “Tribute.”
“…to Him be the glory…”
Is there satisfaction in growing? Absolutely! But as we look back over a storm or trial in our lives, where does our mind go to? Can we see how we got to the other side now that the healing has happened or the breakthrough has come? God allows us to walk through difficulties, all the while growing us even when we can’t see it. Our responsibility with our lives is to show His power and to bring Him glory. We are His character reflected to the world around us. We cannot remain the “walking wounded”; God wants to fulfill His purposes though us, to His honour and for His glory.
We are a part of His church and He brings His church together to display what He is doing in us and through us.
When we realise that we are all broken and humble ourselves before Him the church will come alive like never before, empowered by what Jesus did on the cross. “Glory in the church! And in Christ Jesus!” The fruit of a life that lives by this discipline can impact future generations, effecting what God is doing into the lives of our children and grandchildren. Blows my mind!
- Are you growing?
- Are you seeing good fruit in your life?
- How does your life speak of what Jesus has done for you?
