Message from the Pastor

2024 Ministry Theme: “Look Up”

Luke 21:28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Continual Pressure to Compare

 

As long as we live in an earth suit, a body subject to corruption and have a soul in conflict, as long as we have a devil to fight and a war to wage, we will battle an enemy called comparison. Paul said it like this in 2 Corinthians 10:12; For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. The curse of comparison is always lurking. It tempts both saint and sinner. Paul declares that it is unwise, not to our best interest to do it and yet we find ourselves doing it more than we would care to admit. The solution is both simple and complex, easy and extremely all at the same time. The solution is living in a continual state God’s identity so as to avoid an “identity crisis”. The truth for believers is that their worth, value and purpose are all found in the person and identity of JESUS. Paul said to the Galatians in the latter part of 3:20; …it is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me… The pressure to conform and compare is at an all-time high. Let us daily confess and celebrate that it is “Christ in me, the hope of glory.” Today, we are free to be who God created us to be and that’s enough!

 

Blessings,
