Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1 ESV)
No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him. (2 Timothy 2:4 ESV)
As believers we have been called to live a simple life free from the pursuits of this world. However, someway or the other we get caught up in the pursuits of this world, making life very complicated and painful for us. In this series we will be talking about how we can sometimes allow the world and society to complicate our lives with their ideas or views instead of us living the simple life our saviour Jesus Christ lived on earth. In this series I will be talking about:
We will be looking at how social media has made us very self conscious and causes us to strive to display only the best of ourselves whilst hiding our real selves.
Under this topic we will be looking at what it means to have a friend, types of friends we may have and why it is necessary to prune some of our friendships to help us grow and mature in our walk with God and in life. We will also be talking about how friendship is not about showing your best but rather sharing each other’s joy, hopes, aspirations, faults and failures.
Greed and Generosity
Sometimes we can be greedy and yet not be aware of it because we may be generous in some areas of our lives which may blind us from seeing our greediness. Under this topic we will be talking about watching out against greediness and seeking to be generous at all times, and not being generous some of the time and greedy the other times.
We will also be talking about how we can use the money God have blessed us with to glorify His Holy name, and also be on our guard that anything that we do is not motivated by the love of money but by the love for God and people.
Everyone likes praise or fame. We like to be praised and celebrated but sometimes this can get into our heads and leads us to being prideful, and doing everything for praise instead for His Glory which is very dangerous.
Passion and Passions
Under this topic we will be distinguishing between passion and passions and look at how sometimes passions can lead us into temptation and sin.
Join us this week as we look at the simple but yet challenging Christian life we have been called to live. It is our prayer that the series will be an eye opener for us all and help us to strive to become more like Him and less of ourselves.
