Friction in Ourselves

Message based on Romans 12:1-3

Most Christians have a tendency to see themselves either as worse than they really are or as better than they really are. You do not often find a person who has found a good balance within themselves to see themselves the way God sees them. We cannot confirm to the patterns of this world, because these patterns cause friction within us. We cannot think of ourselves more highly than we ought, because it leads to friction. We must allow our minds to be renewed and refreshed by the spirit of God. We must have a sober self-assessment so we can live from our truest selves and live our lives to the fullest.

Come All Ye Faithful

Last Sunday of Advent. Week 4 of Songs of the Season.


We learn to trust in God by growing our relationship with Jesus. Spend time reading the stories of Jesus found in the four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Spend time talking with Jesus in prayer… Relationships only grow as we invest time in them. Our purpose in life is first to joyfully embrace this friendship with God .

Scripture: Matthew 1:18-25
