Listen to the Message

2 Corinthians 13:11
What did the manager and the pitcher talk about?
This is what you need to remember today, this is what you need to do today.
Because it's what you most need to hear right now.
Hey, you're God's people.
1. Always Reaching.
  • Aim for perfection.
  • I'm losing by a little less each day.
  • Our goal, our objective, our priority is to push for perfection every day.
  • We should always be growing.
  • "There's never been a day in his life, since I've known him, that he didn't improve in some way."
  • Put yourselves in order.
  • Sometimes we try to avoid taking responsibility for ourselves by pointing a finger at everyone else.
2. Always Listening / Always Learning.
  • "Listen to what I've said. Weigh it out. Think it through."
  • Growing in the Christian life is a process of listening and learning.
  • When you listen, you learn.
  • Let the wise listen and add to their learning. (Proverbs 1:5)
3. Always Connected.
  • Be of one mind.
  • "Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike?"
  • If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. (Romans 12:18)
  • Let us there make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. (Romans 14:19)
  • Do what you can to live in peace with one another.
  • God will be with you.
  • If you will keep these priorities as your top priorities, the God of love and peace will be with you.
