Equipped for Life
Are you easily distracted by life’s perceived instability? In those moments, it’s tempting to take decisions independent of God in an attempt to make adequate provision for yourself and your family. To become equipped for life in all its uncertainties, we need to train the discipline of deciding to remain in Christ, come what may.
When we remain in Christ, we learn to follow his example that it is ‘more blessed to give than to receive’. And it’s this service that equips us for life, to make a God-shaped difference in the world.
Discovering the art of unremarkable service allows the remarkable generosity of God to shine through. That’s a compelling witness to the Gospel. Serving God and others is the heartbeat of Christian discipleship, and equips us for life in its fullness.
