Freedom Friday

Friday, December 14, 2012


Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.” (Philippians 4:11)

NO AND'S

Do you find that you’re not satisfied with life and always searching for more stuff to make you happy? Do you find that sometimes you just want to have your cake and eat it too?

Material consumption and consumerism have taken over our lives and sadly our churches. Members are hungry and having to seek shelter outside of their church families, because money is being taken up for the building funds, and the ministry funds, and the preachers’ funds, and the pretending-we’re-serving-the-community funds; while people in our pews, people that we know, are struggling.

Free yourself from the stronghold of consumption which will never satisfy. Free yourself from the being better than, and making more money than, and living in the bigger home than, and having more successful children than, and having better looks than, and mentality. Be content with such things as you have and God will bless you with all that you need. Beauty will fade; money will eventually run out; scholarship will soon be outdated, but time, fellowship, communion, and prayer with others will last forever!

Sisters, let’s stop accumulating more stuff and start desiring more Spirit. Ask yourself: Do I want...

more wealth or more wisdom? 
     more drama or more devotion?
          more junk food or more Jesus? 
               more position in my workplace or more praise in my worship? 

You can decide what ands you want in your life; but determine whether are you just fulfilling a want versus pleasing God. He’s saying no ands if He’s not in your plans! It’s Freedom Friday ladies...

Free yourself from material consumption and grasp for more communion with the Master.

What ands do you need to free yourself of today?
