Gospel-Shaped Living = Running From + Running To
1 Timothy 6: 6 – 19
A life without Christ accumulates a lot of worthless journeys that ultimately lead to disaster. However, a life where Christ has taken up residence aggressively pursues attitudes and behaviors that are created and given by our Lord. As our Lord meets us in worship today, He is eager to remind us whose we are and how we became His own. He is also ready to lead the way in our faith journey, helping us to avoid being ensnared by so much that has become evil and contaminated in this world. May the Holy Spirit lead us to continually defend the Christ-centered faith we have been so graciously given in Baptism and empower us to pursue putting in action the behaviors God has designed for us.
