I've had this song on repeat in my car...It's SO encouraging... Remember, we are called to be different and to make a difference. No one will want to become a 'Christian' if 'Christians' are living the same life as people that don't call themselves Christians.

"Human" by Natalie Grant

Every life has a choice
To rise up to fill the void
Every heart has a mission
And we are called to be human

We gotta do better than this cuz we only got
One chance to make a difference
We gotta do better than this cuz we only got
One life that we've been given
A little love, a little kindness
A little light in this time of darkness
It'll be what makes us different
It'll be what makes us human
I'm human, you're human, we are human

We are marked with His image
And we are scarred with indifference
Maybe now we should listen
Hear the cry of God's children

Gotta do better than this cuz I only got
One chance to make a difference
Gotta do better than this cuz I'm only
Just one

I'm human, you're human, we are
We are human

It'll be what makes the difference
It'll be what makes us human

A note for the day...

How AWESOME is it to know that God will NEVER let you fall AND He will never pass away. Literally...NEVER. On top of that, Jesus paid our debt of sin so that we can spend eternity with Him! He didn't just pay our debts, but He genuinely wants to know us. He wants to spend time with us, just as our earthly Fathers want to spend time with us.

Wanna know something crazy??

I drove. my car. by myself. yesterday.
Yes, It was quite strange, it didn't feel like it was legal, but I guess it is!

Speaking of which, I probably should get back to school...

Living Free-Free Choice

These are the notes I took at church yesterday....It was an awesome sermon!
Living Free-Free Choice
"Galatians 5:1-15"
-Every choice we make has a consequence.
-God wants us to make the right choices in life. He encourages us to make the right choices.
-Making the right choices allows us to enjoy the best consequences in life.
What are the right choices?
1. Choose to STAND FIRM
Jesus desires for us to have freedom. He died so we could have it! We have to stand firm in order to have freedom.
A. Standing firm means really putting faith in Jesus.
-Having faith in Jesus means more than just acknowledging that He is the ONLY God. The demons acknowledge that!
-Our faith has to involve more than what the demons have.
Faith- "Hebrews11:1" Having the certainty in our relationship, even though we can't see Him.
-We live by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7)
-The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself though love. (Galatians 5:5)
B. Standing firm means not returning to our old lives.
"Galatians 5:1b"
-Don't allow yourself to be burdened by the yoke of slavery (of sin)
-Make the choice to stand firm (in your faith)
2. Choose to RUN WELL
A. "Running a good race" means obeying truth.
"Jeremiah 17:9"
The heart is deceitful, who can understand it?
-The heart is deceitful, don't follow it, don't trust it... It'll lead you astray.
What is truth?
"John 14:6"
I am the truth.
"John 8:31-32"
If you hold to my teachings, the truth will set you free.
Where do we find that truth?
"2 Timothy 3:16"
All Scripture is God breathed, That's where we find the truth.
The Bible is the ONLY source of absolute truth.
B. "Running a good race" means continuing in Gods truth without being distracted.
C. A little bit of disobedience can ruin a really good race.
3. Choose to SERVE OTHERS
A. God would have us choose to improve conditions for others.
B. Don't use the freedom you have in Christ to cater to your own needs, but serve each other.
C. Consciously and deliberately choose to serve...
