Self-control is a godly discipline, one that takes intentionality to develop.

A LIVING SACRIFICE
Series: Tug of War | Text: Romans 12:1-2 | Date: July 28, 2019
Being a living sacrifice means we focus more on who God is shaping us to be than who we want to be with, we stop making excuses and start living according to God’s truth, we lay our ambitions and desires on the altar and chase after God, and we live open-handed toward God.

It’s a powerful reminder that while you may be facing daunting circumstances in your life, no matter how big your problem may be, Jesus still has power over it.

What do you do when life throws you a curveball, when plans fall through, and when your world comes apart? Jesus guaranteed us that life is full of trouble, but He also promised us that there is peace to be found if we will look to Him in moments of turmoil.

We’ve all heard phrases like “God helps those who help themselves” or “God won’t give you more than you can handle”.

This series looks at different phrases the Bible doesn’t actually say, comparing them to the truth that is really there to be found.
