Virginia District Teen Winter Retreat
1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
What God desires for us is a closeness to him. Closeness creates character.
God is more concerned with our proximity (to Him) than our performance.
When our faith is tied to our proximity, and not our performance. When our faith and our value are tied to our closeness to Jesus he won’t fail.
Are you living and looking and loving like Jesus?
There is nothing in this world that can hold the value that you are putting on it, except for Jesus.
