What is the best sign of spiritual health?
That your life can only be explained by what Jesus Christ has done.
We tend to think that the best spiritual health indicators are about what we have done, or what we are doing. Attending church, reading the Bible, serving others.
In a phone conversation this week a person apologetically explained that she knows next to nothing about the Bible. But, as I listened to her desperate hope to get to know God I realized that she was far more spiritually healthy than many of us who know tons about the Bible but might not be so desperate to know God. It was clear that God was at work in her life.
This Sunday at the Gathering Church I get to teach from the biography of someone who could only explain their life by Christ. In Philippians 3:1-11 the apostle Paul describes what has become the focus of his life. From this sermon series, A New Perspective, we see a new way to look at achievement and personal performance. Imagine being free from the stress of trying to prove something about ourselves.
