KNOW, GROW, GLOW, AND GO
We need to discuss a four part need that we all have as Christians.
Our years are passing by quickly and we need to let ourselves become what Jesus wants of us.
The Scripture is our standard:
Romans 15:4 - "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that
through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." (NIV)
I Corinthians 10:6 - "Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our
hearts on evil things as they did." (NIV)
In this lesson, let's look at this fourfold need and measure our lives to see where we stand.
Hosea 4:1-10 - (6).
Deuteronomy 6:1-12; 20-25.
Truth is important.
John 8:32-40.They thought they knew enough.
Rested in their self-confidence. We do too!!!
II Timothy 2:15.
GROW. (KNOWLEDGE ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH)
I Peter 2:2.
I Peter 1:22-25.
GLOW. (NOT FLASH!)
Fire attracts attention.
Illustration: An atheist who watched a church building burn down. Nothing else could get his attention.
I John 1:7 - be light walkers.
Family, friends, loved ones.
We have what the world needs -- Go!
Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16.
Are you studying to KNOW?
Are you striving to GROW?
Does anyone see you GLOW?
Do you even attempt to GO?
