US-ies: Living Fully
A bad day TOGETHER is better than a good day ALONE!
John 10:10 (NIV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
A FOCUSSED life will be a FULL life!
1. I will focus on the things of CHRIST rather than the things of this WORLD!
Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.
25 Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. 26 Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. 27 Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.
Spiritual maturity isn’t measured by how HIGH you jump in PRAISE
but how STRAIGHT you walk in OBEDIENCE!
2. I will focus on TODAY rather than on TOMORROW!
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
God has given you EVERYTHING you need for TODAY!
2 Peter 1:3
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.
3. I will focus on WE rather than on ME!
It’s not about ME!
1 Peter 2:15-16 (ESV)
15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.
