Beyond the Motions

1 Corinthians 3:8-9; 9:23-27

Do you ever feel like you're just plodding on and going through the motions, thinking things like What exactly is it that I'm doing for You Lord? Or Am I accomplishing things and making headway? Well I've certainly been there and I still find myself in this frame of mind from time to time. So Paul's words from 1 Corinthians 9:23-27 gave me a good reminder, plus a little prod to refocus, that I am in fact in a race and as such, I need to be making the most of my efforts.

So what do these passages tell us about the importance/significance of the race we are in? What can we do to make sure we're running with focus, purpose and intent? Tami

Many, many changes in the last month! Some good and some not so good. Your passages today are a good reminder to stay focused on Jesus Christ-not on the events around us. God places us in positions to be a light to the world. I need to refocus every morning to share the Good News to those I come in contact with, to praise God, to prepare myself to be used by and for God.

I have learnt that if we focus where we are goiing. we rest in Christ allowing Him to run through us. knowing no matter what, we cannote loose. For He is in us the ultimate. Because we are part of His Body, just waiting for us to share .

I LOVE THAT THE lord IS OUR GUIDE, OUR DIRECTOR AND PROVIDES THE MEANS TO ACCOMPLISH HIS GOALS FOR OUR LIVES TODAY.
HE HAS REQUESTED THAT WE BE HIS BOOTS ON THE GROUND.
SAY YOUR SORRY WHEN YOU KNOW IT IS NEEDED. LOVE WHEN AND WHERE AND WITH WHOM YOU KNOW NEEDS IT! SHARE ALL THAT WE HAVE WITH THOSE AROUND US.
THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE THAT WE ABSORB BY WALKING WITH THE LORD ARE TOOLS NOT ONLY FOR US BUT FOR EACH PERSON WE COME IN CONTACT WITH.
BE HIS MISSIONARIES!
