Seven ways to live 2018 in the fullness of God:
1. Commit to acknowledge God in all your ways (Proverbs 3:5,6)
Many times we make decisions and then ask God to bless them: this year start off by bringing God’s Word and God’s Spirit into every major decision and give Him opportunity to speak to you and guide you.
2. Don’t live in anxiety ( Philippians 4:6,7)
Make a commitment to give all your fears and burdens to the Lord instead of holding onto them and worrying. Jesus said by your worrying you cannot accomplish anything positive (Mt. 6:27) Fret not – it only leads to evil (Psalm 37:8).
3. Give thanks in everything (not for everything – 1 Thes. 5:18)
People who live in thankfulness to God appreciate Him and release Him to multiply blessings in their life! Whatever you are thankful for multiplies and is attracted to you; grumbling and complaining poisons a good atmosphere and hinders the release of your faith.
4. Live first and foremost for Jesus / not for yourself (Colossians 1:16-19)
We were created for Jesus and God’s glory — not to fulfill our own self-centered desires.
5. Live in continual hunger for God
It’s not enough merely to be loyal, faithful, and committed to God– God is pleased when we desire and seek after Him (John 4:23,24). Only those who hunger and thirst for Him will be filled (Mt. 5:6).
6. Strive to help others fulfill their calling
Jesus said the greatest in the Kingdom is the one who serves others ( John 14:14). If you live to serve others you will never lack others serving and loving you!
7. Be committed to the life and flow of a bible-centered local congregation
When we become children of God we immediately are baptized into the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians12:12,13). If we are not functioning with and for other members of a local community of faith, we are like a finger who tries to function without a hand, wrist, or arm! There is no such thing as individual destiny or purpose — we are all individual members who need a body to fulfill our purpose.
