TGIM! Good News!, Written Articles

TGIM – Thank God It’s Monday!

THE WORD IS: For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21

THE POINT IS: What are you living for?  What motivates you?  What sustains you?  The Apostle Paul had a very clear point of reference, and a very definite reason for living. He knew the Source, and he was well connected!  The source of life is Christ. Only Christ can enable you to move beyond merely existing to truly living.  You cannot experience true life apart from Christ.  Real living means Christ does the living.

THE APPLICATION IS: So, who’s doing the living in your life?  If you’re drawing from the true life-source Jesus Christ, then you’re well connected.  And as you draw upon your true life-source, you’ll really be living, because Christ will be doing the living. Otherwise, you’re just existing.  Furthermore, when Christ lives His life through you, you will experience the joy of the Lord—joy unspeakable and full of glory.  As a result, even death will become gain to you, because when you’re absent from your body, you will be present with your Lord.  Either way, in Christ you win!

Lewis & Lue Gregory

P.S. I will be preaching at In Focus Church in Rome, Georgia this Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 10:00am.  Please pray for this time of ministry and ask God to make His presence known and grant a spiritually enriching, life transforming experience for everyone present (Ephesians 6:19).  If you are in the area, be sure to join us if at all possible.
