BREAKTHROUGH | VICTORY IS ON THE OTHER SIDE | WEEK 4
JULY 23, 2023
COMMITMENT IS PLEASING GOD OVER PLEASING PEOPLE.
If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.
COMMITMENT IS FOLLOWING HIM REGARDLESS OF THE COST.
And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
EVERYTHING YOU DO IN LIFE BECOMES EXTRAORDINARY.
1 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. 2 Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:1-2 (MSG)
