You Pick Two

AUTHOR: Tom Nelson

Lead Senior Pastor

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24 ESV

One of the greatest obstacles to our spiritual growth is not necessarily willful disobedience as it is a convenient “you pick two” compartmentalization of our lives.

Meditating on God’s Word | Luke 21:1-4

MEDITATE ON GOD’S WORD – Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” | Luke 21:1-4

    Awesome reminder and encouragement for my work!

    I would love to see a formed.life series targeted to our students as well….I am going to try to get my teenagers to check this out, but it might resonate better with them if they are invited and getting daily posts from student ministry leaders/volunteera/students that are in parallel and sometimes the same as the general formed.life posts….just an idea to share.

    Thank you for your timely words Tom! I find this especially convicting about a world and work environment that is hostile to the Gospel. Just because it’s hard and scary doesn’t excuse me from the responsibility God has placed on me.
