Growing Pains

2 Corinthians 7:1 (NIV)

7Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

*Look at your life and exam how God has blessed...Now, think about how much greater those blessings can be if we would walk in the fullness of the wonders of His love. Sometimes we don't experience or receive what we desire because we have to be shaped and molded for the next level, while other times it is because we choose to stifle our own growth process. We let a "little but of sin" cause us to miss out on a lot because we refuse to fully dedicate ourselves to Him. I know most people see nothing wrong with doing things in moderation, but think about it this way: How much faster would you receive your desired results if you actually took the time to clean up your act, and truly put effort in to fully serving Him? Let's work on being motivated to clean up our acts...Out with old and in with new lifestyle of Godly choices. You know when something isn't right just as well as how you know to do the right thing to obtain results. Is a little but of sin really worth stunting your growth?
