Living for the Moment

Colossians 3:23 reminds us to do whatever we do with all our heart as for the Lord and not for men. Passages like this suggest that followers of Christ should have lives that are radically different than those around us. Why is this? For starters, our motivation to do what we do should be rooted in a desire to please and glorify God.

Last weekend David Foster, the Pastor of Family Ministries, delivered a message called “Living for the Moment.” In it he was calling the church to be a city within a city by living as true followers of Jesus. I attended the service twice because I knew God had a message for me within his words. If you’ve got time this week and weren’t able to attend services last weekend, the message is worth listening to. You can access it here. Thanks Dave for challenging us to make the most of every moment! BTW: In the message he implies that very few were in attendance. This is because the service that was recorded was on Saturday during the Alamo bowl (in which our own Iowa Hawkeye’s were playing).
