It's about him

… in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
--1 Peter 4:11
In case you haven't noticed, the times in which you and I live are growing increasingly depraved.
Here's the ugly dark secret: It's not going to get better for our kids or our grandkids. This will be the pace as the end of time draws near. All things are about to be fulfilled, and God is going to come in Christ and judge the world!
Can you see, then, why it's so important that we live our faith with an awareness of our times?
Paul said we should come out from those who are in the world. This means to separate yourself from worldliness… to make good decisions about your lifestyle and your behavior… to be conscientious about what you put on and in your body.
You see, if you're going to glorify God through Jesus Christ, you must accept that your life isn't about you—it's about him! This is why Paul said, "Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth" (Colossians 3:2).
Don't get confused and caught up in the craziness of the times. Pray for discernment and clear thinking. Set yourself apart for his purpose and fight the good fight of faith in these final days!
IF YOU WANT TO GLORIFY JESUS WITH YOUR LIFE,
YOU'LL SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM WORLDLINESS.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
