The ﬁrst and greatest barrier to change in any area of your life is pride. The fact is, nobody has it all together. I don’t have it all together. You don’t have it all together.
The Bible says there’s nothing perfect on Earth except God’s Word. Everything on this planet is broken because of sin.
But we walk around trying to impress people and pretend like we’ve got it all together. The problem is, if we want to have lasting change in our life, we ﬁrst have to humbly assess our current state and admit that we don’t have it all together. We have to admit we have a problem with our ﬁnances, with our health, or wherever we struggle with in our life.
Romans 12:3 says, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you”.
Are you willing to ask the people closest to you, “Where do I need to change?” Do you have the courage to ask other people to be honest about you and with you?
Why is this so important? Because you can only manage what you measure.
If you don’t know the measure of your faith, you can’t grow in your faith. If you don’t know the measure of your health, you can’t develop and grow in health. If you don’t know the measure of where you are ﬁnancially, you can’t set ﬁnancial goals.
You can only manage what you measure!
Every weekend at Bethlehem, there are opportunities to serve and grow and get in groups that will help you take a next step in your relationship with God. Don’t miss the message this weekend- It will be a GAME CHANGER!
God bless you!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
