SORT BY Relevancy
God wants you to leave the elementary principles of Christ -- to leave, (not abandon), the elementary principles about Christ. He wants you to progress beyond them.
Spiritual Infancy is lack of growth after the new birth.
The spiritual infant is concerned with self rather than service.
The spiritual infant is concerned with argument rather than action.
The spiritual infant looks to people rather than the Master.
Christ's teachings on the basics are what the author of Hebrews is getting at. The basics are to be studied, fed upon as an infant would feed upon milk. Once the foundation has been laid you are to improve not only in your understanding but in your practice and attitudes concerning spiritual things.
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Sometimes planning for something to be perfect can keep us chained to the start line of what we need to do. It is wonderful to plan and it is great to have a desire for everything to be in place, however, if you are not careful a need for perfection can paralyze you and you may never launch what you are wanting to do. Join Business Skill Trainer and Life Coach, Cherise Tayor as she shares how to release yourself from the need to be perfect.
Perfection Vs Quality
WHAT IS PERFECTION? WHY DO WE DESIRE IT SO MUCH?
COULD QUALITY REPLACE PERFECTION?
WHEN DO WE NEED TO COMPROMISE?
How do you know when you are in the perfection status?
To me Quality is character, and essential, it is a thing- A thing is easier to touch and define.
What are you pursuing, perfection or quality for your life?
The Reasons to Believe #46
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, "Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil."
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from G. Campbell Morgan. He said, "No one statement wrested from its context is a sufficient warrant for actions that plainly controvert other commands. How excellent a thing it would be if the whole Church of Christ had learned that no law of life may be based upon an isolated text. Every false teacher who has divided the Church, has had, "it is written" on which to hang his doctrine."
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Argument from Degrees of Perfection for the Existence of God" from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
We notice around us things that vary in certain ways. A shade of color, for example, can be lighter or darker than another; a freshly baked apple pie is hotter than one taken out of the oven hours before; the life of a person who gives and receives love is better than the life of one who does not.
So we arrange some things in terms of more and less. And when we do, we naturally think of them on a scale approaching most and least. For example, we think of the lighter as approaching the brightness of pure white, and the darker as approaching the opacity of pitch black. This means that we think of them at various "distances" from the extremes, and as possessing, in degrees of "more" or "less," what the extremes possess in full measure. ...
The 2014 Winter Games are underway in Sochi, Russia, right now. All of the competitions are exciting and thrilling. But one of the competitions that is not only exciting and thrilling, but completely beautiful to watch, is speed skating.
The precision and grace of the sport often leave us in awe of those who take to the ice to master it. While those who compete on the Olympic level make it look easy, many years of hard work, training, and discipline are behind the few minutes of perfection on ice that make up a competition that is incredibly inspiring to watch.
Each of us strive for perfection in some area of our lives. Students desire perfect grades, moms and dads want to be perfect parents, and businesspeople want profit trajectories to consistently go up. Even though we may obtain something close to perfection in one or more of these areas in our lives, there is one area in which we will always fall short -- and that is the area of moral behavior. Even the most disciplined person who strives to do what is right in every situation will often stumble in sin and immorality. As the Bible says, "there is none righteous, no, not one."
We may see our sins as small infractions, but we shouldn't. The reason why is because even the smallest of infractions is all it takes to separate us from our Creator who demands perfection from his creation. Yes, God's requirement is that you and I be perfect in order to fellowship with Him.
"That's impossible!" you say. "Everybody makes mistakes sometimes."
Yes, everybody does make mistakes -- even speed skaters. All of us, at some point in our lives, have sinned. In fact the Bible says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."...
