Becoming Fully Devoted

All-In Christ-followers

1 Seek God's approval before other people's
2 Readily share their faith in Christ with words and without
3 Have a clear focus on heaven while living life to the full on earth
4 Regularly submit to the convicting light of the Holy Spirit
5 Are passionate about becoming more fully devoted to Christ
6 Sacrifice time and money regularly to invest in God's work in the world
7 Seek to live a holy life of surrender and service

Just thought stating these in a more positive way would also be good.

Lukewarm Christians

1 Crave acceptance from people - more than from God
2 Rarely share our faith in Christ
3 Think more about life on earth than things in heaven
4 Salve our consciences by comparing themselves to others
5 Want just enough of God to get to heaven
6 Give some money but not enough to change our usual pattern of spending
7 Do the least we can to feel less guilty

We can do better than this by the grace of God...

Bayless on Tebow

Three Dollars

I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please, not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep. Not enough to change me - just enough to make me feel better. I’d like enough to God to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine.
I don’t want enough of God to make me love a black man or serve alongside a migrant worker.

I want ecstasy not transformation; I want the warmth of the womb not a new birth. I want about a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack.
I’d just like $3 worth of God - please.

May we never settle for this...
