Monthly Thoughts from Pastor Fred Naumann

CHRISTIAN MATURITY IS...

by Pastor Fred Naumann

 

+Conducting and conditioning one's life and lifestyle with God as Father, Teacher, Judge and Jury.

+ Loving even what is not lovely. Not questioning who is deserving.

+ Changing behavior to please God. Committing the rest to His care.

+ Busy performing duties rather than publishing expectations.

+ Having more fun giving than receiving (even when grandchildren are not involved).

+ Recognizing the elusive, evasive providing hand of God.

+ Treating those older people as we would our parents, our peers as family and the rest as beloved by God.

+ Anchored by convictions, not circumstances.

+ Being consciously aware of the inability to live or die without knowing Jesus.

+ Letting God be God, consistently aware that Jesus is both Savior and Lord.

+ Having moved beyond both faith and hope to love. + Attempting both to give the best and bring out the best in others.

+ Saying, "Here am I, use me" rather than "Let George do it."

+ Living energetically until death, then dying to live fully.

+ Establishing God's Time daily including Bible study and prayer.

+ Taking the time to phone a lonely person, writing a short note to someone who needs your encouragement, thanking those who serve you, or reaching out in individually unique ways to show love.

+Telling someone each day about Jesus as Savior.

I Corinthians 16:13-14 Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.
