Testing of your faith develops perseverance” [James 1:3]

Pressing on!   Pressing in!  Pressing through!  Paul said they were “… hard pressed on every side…”  We may not look like Jesus yet, but we can all relate to Paul!  The life of a disciple of Christ is not for wimps, but weak human beings depending upon God’s Word empowered by His Grace and mercy.

Everyone has the pressure and everyone has the choice; conform to the world, allowing it to squeeze you into its mold or become transformed.  How?  By the renewing of your mind.  “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking, Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed [transformed] from the inside out…”  [Romans 12:2 TM]

The world is unprincipled.  It’s dog-eat-dog out there!  The world doesn’t fight fair.  But we don’t live or fight our battles that way; never have and never will.  The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire-massively-corrupt culture.  We use our powerful God tools for smashing, warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.” [2 Corinthians 10:4 TM]  This morning change your life by changing your thinking.  Think God thoughts, it will produce persevering power.
