No Matter What
Character counts and Contentment clears the way for Christ to work in and through us as Contenders of the Gospel.
When we have a humble self-awareness of our spiritual condition, we will have an earnest desire for spiritual growth that leads us to live for Jesus while we wait for his return.
To work out your own salvation means to actively and ruthlessly abandon your life to Christ, pursuing his desires for your life, realizing your greatest God- created potential, becoming more and more like Jesus.
Adopting the same attitude of Christ, we discover a powerful unity for the mission of the Gospel when we exercise Godly humility.
Starting with attention to our inner life in Christ, we should live lives that make Him attractive to all, standing united as His church, contending for people’s trust in the Gospel.
As we pursue spiritual growth, we must remember that it comes from God and recognize the role Christian friends can play in our pursuit of it.
