When I Grow Up
How the Spirit Makes Us Whole
Sunday, 10 a.m. at LSUS
When you were a kid, you had big plans. Maybe along these lines:
When I grow up…
I wanna be big and strong
I’m going to a singer (or astronaut or race car driver or singing astronaut race car driver!)
I want to help people
I am going to eat ice cream for breakfast
I’ll have a house, a dog, and 2 kids.
And while those are all good ideas – especially ice cream for breakfast – God has an even bigger plan: Transformation.
We spend so much time worried about what to do and where to go we can forget this profound truth – Nothing matters more in life than the person you become along the way.
God’s constant priority is to make us whole, to mature us like Christ. How? By giving us himself.
God’s Spirit dwells within us and produces in us what we could never produce on our own. Consider this list from Galatians 5: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
Honestly, is there anything that would change the quality of your life more than these?
So let’s talk about how the Spirit makes us whole, how God grows us, and how we can remember day-to-day that our main business is not doing but becoming.
