what really matters


I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. 10 For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. 11 May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.

There are people who we are connected with.  These hold a special place in ours hearts.  You have some as I do.

The Apostle Paul wrote this passage to a group of people he cared for deeply.  He helped to start the church in Philippi.  He longed to see them again, but his prayer and push was for their growth and the spread of the good news that comes from Jesus.

What are you praying for?

How are you challenged others to live for Christ?

Do we realize what really matters?

How we lives matters.  When we act like Jesus and share Him with others, people will come face to face with our God.  Life really is all about Jesus as this passage says.  My prayer is that our churches will be full of people committed to Christ.  I pray that our lives point directly to Him.

That comes from living with the purpose God made us for.  Paul’s words were clear.  He said “I want you to understand what really matters”.

May we know… may we live… may we see people changed each and every day.
