Merging Lives…
Be A Servant

Be A Servant

October 25, 2020

We are often stuck in the Ricky Bobby mentality... "If you're not first, you're last!" (Talladega Nights anyone?)

If there is a "best", then there has to be a "worst".

Jesus came to turn that mentality upside down and teaches that the greatest life possible is more than just CHOOSING to serve, it is about living a life in service. It's about BEING a servant.

Peace in the Quiet

Peace in the Quiet

Life today is filled with a lot of noise.

Oftentimes, all the noise just distracts, disrupts, and discourages us.

Goal-oriented tasks can have a similar effect on us as all the noise.

Silence & Solitude gives us freedom from the noise and goal-oriented tasks and enables us to see and hear more clearly. Sometimes we must go away from people so that we can be truly present when we are with people.

If you ever find yourself thinking that life is too hard or too complicated...

or that you long for a sense of freedom, joy, and balance in life...

Maybe you need to simplify your life.

Simplicity in life is based on gratitude, trust, and dependence on God. When we simplify, we find freedom, joy, & balance.

Continuing our series, "Live the Greatest Life Possible", we talk about another important discipline to help us live the life we were created to live.

HOW to Study…

HOW to Study…

October 7, 2020

This week we learned about the importance of changing the way our mind functions for the sake of living the greatest life that we have been created to live.

   Living the greatest life possible begins with renewing our mind.

      So, HOW do we renew our mind?

         We renew our mind by studying God's Word.

On Sunday we learned WHAT study is (& what it isn't).

   We learned WHY we would ever want to study God's Word.

      We did not, however, get into HOW we study.

This gives us some "nuts & bolts" of HOW we can study in a way that will re-wire our brains, helping them to function differently (to "change our minds") so that we can begin to enter into the greatest life possible.

Change Your Mind

Change Your Mind

October 4, 2020

Do you find yourself in a cycle of destructive habits of thought?

You can replace those old, destructive habits of thought with new, life-giving habits.

Our human mind will always take on the shape of that which we concentrate on, focus on, think about.

It is not that hard to "Change Your Mind" from destructive to life-giving!

Continuing our series, "Live the Greatest Life Possible", we talk about the process that is central to the renewing of our mind so that we can respond to life in a more healthy and appropriate way.
