Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you. elf-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self.  Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for? The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works. So let people see God in and through your body. 

  • God sees not as man sees. Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart.
  • Jesus clearly stated the two greatest priorities for every person: to love God and others and to do this with all you’ve got. When you sincerely love God, you will then love others, too
  • Keep your eyes on Jesus, and take courage from the examples of those who have gone before you

Job 17:9  “Principled people hold tight, keep a firm grip on life, sure that their clean, pure hands will get stronger and stronger!”
