Think past what’s temporary
This morning I was reminded of Hezekiah Walker’s song “moving forward”. The song reminds us that we have to keep pressing forward past what we see right now in our lives.
Read 1 Corinthians 4:16-18
God is real and He does really love us. Over and over again, the bible says to not lose heart. When we decide to become committed followers of Jesus. We have to let go of our old ways. Believe me…I know how difficult it can be. To let go of what you considered not so bad or it seems acceptable. But when you read the bible, you find out that God considers it sin. What do you do in those times? The answer is simple…but the action is hard. We follow God. Here is what is helpful: vs 18 “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen is temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Here are your questions and take away for today:
1. What are your light afflictions?(vs17)
2. How are you renewing yourself in God today?(vs16)
3. Takeaway: Remember your “it” is only temporary. It is eternity we need to be looking forward to.
