Putting Your Life Together


Putting Your Life Together Spiritually
  • Love God; Spend time; Listen
  • Don't make discipline legalistic
  • Walk with God
  • Let God shape you
Putting Your Life Together Mentally

Managing Your Fear

 

2 Timothy 1:7   "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

 

Putting Your Life Together - Managing Your Stuff

Acts 2:44-45   "All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need."

 

  • Developing Generosity
  • You can own anything; Use it for the Lord
  • Stuff becomes worthless
Putting Your Life Together Physically

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies."

 

  • The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit
  • We are fashioned by God
  • Don't make good health a god
  • Don't make eating a sin
  • Looking attractive vs looking alluring
Putting Your Life Together Living The Adventure

When You Don't What Comes Next

 

Acts 13:1-6   "Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul.  While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”   So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them, sent on their way by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus.  When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues. John was with them as their helper.  They traveled through the whole island until they came to Paphos."

 

  • Adventure means you don't know what comes next
  • Being comfortable with risk
  • Intentionally living outside your comfort zone - pushing yourself
  • Go
