Jeff Faust reminds us that spiritual maturity doesn’t just magically happen—it takes partnership with God, it takes self-discipline, self-control and effort! Training is tough, it’s not as fun as it looks and sometimes includes temporary pain in order to experience eternal joy. God made you to win the race he has set before you.
Jeff Faust reminds us that God takes sin seriously. Sin can affect our whole self and our whole community and God wants the best for us. As Christians, our role is to judge and examine ourselves before God and hold each other accountable, but not to judge the world.
Jeff Faust reminds us to give and give generously. Jesus said this crazy thing—that when you give you should give in a way that your left hand doesn’t know what your right hand is doing. We are called to give to those in need and when we do, we are giving to Jesus.
Jeff Faust asks the question “What are you known for?” Are you different than other people because of God? Moses was set apart from other people by God. Vineyard of the Rockies is set apart from our community by God. Jeff challenges us to Read, Pray, and Pause in order to be set apart by God.
