[Philippians 4:4-10]

Children can be pretty stinking cute sometimes. They can do some things that make us laugh because of their innocence. Other times we may find it adorable the way they cling to their bottles or clutch their favorite toy as they go through the day...but their ways don't stay adorable forever, right?

What if we went around drinking our coffee from a bottle or sucked on a pacifier to get through the afternoon without a breakdown? There comes a time when everyone grows up and has to leave those childish things and ways behind, because it's the way life works. It's the same in the Christian life. As we mature as believers, there are things that we leave behind because we have moved beyond...or should have moved beyond. Hebrews 5:11-14 also attests to this.

We are not to be stagnant and stupid, but to faithful and flourish.

Rejoice

Rejoice?
Phil 4:4-6; Rom 11:33-36

God knows all things. He knows every fact about all things. Everything is for His glory, and He is in control. The verses talk about rejoicing always in Him. We will look at what they means this week as we come together to study God's Word. Notice what it does not say, it does not say that we only rejoice in the good times. He is near to us in the good and in the bad. Rejoice that God is in control.
God owes us nothing, we have received so much from Him already - our salvation. Anything beyond that is even more of a gift. Oh How He loves us so....

As a life group, we are designating the fourth Sunday of each month to meet and eat for lunch after church. You don't have to make a reservation, but we will coordinate a casual restaurant (with plenty of high chairs) where you order when you get there, sit, eat, and can feel free to move around and visit the different people who come.

This Sunday: Rosa's Cafe

NOTE: If you have any suggestions of where we can meet in the future, we'd be happy to hear them. Just leave a comment on this post.

Philippians 3:16-21; Titus 2:1-8

Its all temporary. Things in this world for this world, are temporary. We are here for a while and then we get to go home! Home is where we belong. Home is where we will reside with Our Lord Jesus, the Christ. It is sometimes difficult to raise our eyes to heavenly things and not to look at the temporary things, but it can be done. It is about perspective, ours versus His. The bracelets of WWJD were famous for a while and it reminded us to think about "What Would Jesus Do" well how about even what will Jesus think about this situation or that situation, how would He act here. Can we live like that all the time? With His help, focused on Him, there should be no reason why we cannot. It may seem weird to your neighbors, your co-workers at first, maybe even your family, but try it every once in a while - live like this world is temporary and see the results and responses of those who cling to this world.
For Him....
