What are You Learning?

Normally this blog is about me helping you choose Jesus everyday, but for a rare occasion I would love to hear from you.  I want all my readers to take a few short moments and answer one short question.

What has God been teaching you lately?

Here’s my lesson.  Then I would love to read your answer in the comments below.

God is reminding me that regardless of how beautiful the outside of our lives look, we must make sure our internal life is first priority.  Otherwise we are like the white washed tombs Jesus described who are beautiful on the outside but dead on the inside.

So what’s your answer?

  1. The Lord has been teaching me the value of contentment. I’ve been trying to break away from the comparison game for months, but it really came home to me when I picked up an article from National Geographic about Somalians in Mogadishu. I had been so worried about how we were going to pay our dental bills and suddenly I realized that I should be grateful to have the ability to live in a free society and grateful that I have the means to provide my children with healthcare. It could be so much worse. So now, I am focusing on gratitude rather than grumbling.

    1. That is such a good lesson. I don’t know if your like me, but go through seasons where I’m great at contentment. Then there are other times where I completely miss the mark. Glad God is teaching you that. It’s always a difficult yet good lesson to learn and in my case relearn.

      1. Yes! I am the same way. I find that if I spend too much time on Social Media, my contentment starts to lag. Being a Christian demands constant vigilance for we are always under fire from satan.

  3. Living in Christ is living differently from the way the world lives. While we may be in it we are not like it. We will not change the world but we can tell people there is a different way to live.

  5. I started studying the Gospel of John. Again. 🙂 1:4-5 “In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it”. I love this. It’s like I’ve never seen it before. satan doesn’t understand this light and he never will. I can just imagine him shaking his fist at God when someone comes to Christ and he doesn’t understand why when he has “so much to give”. he just doesn’t understand.

    1. That’s amazing. I love when scripture you’ve read a 1000 times comes alive with a fresh new meaning. So good. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Considering the good in a sermon, rather than closing my ears to all of it, because of the bad parts.
    Looking to support the good in my brethren rather than wholly withdrawing from them because of what’s bad in them, because there is also sin in me.

    Considering my own fallen condition and Gods mercy to me in Christ

    Considering the prophet Jeremiah and his obedience to proclaim Gods Word, despite opposition from his brethren.

    Considering the incredible blessing of salvation and ongoing mercy despite my sinful condition.

    Considering the importance of self discipline to examine and studdy The Word, regarding matters that could otherwise just be perceived by me from what I’ve heard or have read others thoughts on, then to learn subject to The Truth of The Word.

    1. I love the phrase “biblical hope” it’s different than any kind of hope in the world. What a great lesson to learn. Keep up the great work.

      1. I’m partial to it, too – otherwise, we can fall into naive pollyanna-ism if we are not anchored in biblocal truth.

        Great blog post! 🙂

  8. Reading slowly thru Ps 119. God’s been teaching me to stand in awe of the power, truth, hope and righteousness of his word. Regardless of the pressures of this world his word is peace.

  9. Though the weight of the trial is trying to make my knees buckle, I feel God carry some of the weight. He doesn’t take it all because he wants to strengthen my fortitude because the next trial may be even heavier. I CAN do ALL things THROUGH Christ who gives me strength.
