Radiating God’s Beauty

cb devo aug28“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.” 2 Peter 1:5-7 (NIV)

Lifting weights can definitely give you a good work out. Looks quite simple – watching someone who strength trains lift heavy weights with ease. We see those sculpted muscles and quickly decide we want to look like that – it really can’t be that hard. Unlike the fitness ads we see in magazines, muscles don’t magically appear overnight. It takes discipline, consistency and the right nutrition. You start lifting lighter weights and then gradually increase as your body adjusts. End result from all that hard work is a stronger, leaner body built to carry us through life.

Lifting our spiritual lives to a deeper level happens much the same way. It starts simply with taking our faith in God and building upon discipline, consistency and prayer. Before we know it, we begin to see God’s goodness overriding our actions. As we put His words into practical application, we build a sculpted life that reflects His character. Self-control enables us to lift the heavy weight of perseverance. Godliness in our actions and thoughts births the byproduct of brotherly kindness and love – a life that others decide they want.

End result from all that hard work is a woman that truly reflects the beauty of God’s character and goodness. Praying that will be you and me – less of us and more of Him – daughters making their Father proud.

“Father, how we long to be women who turn the eyes of the world on You instead of ourselves. Help us to make every effort to grow, increase and flourish in our faith as we allow Your beauty to radiate in our lives.”

For His Glory

Marriage Conference

TRBC will be hosting the I Still Do conference on Saturday, October 17th. I Still Do, a Family Life event, is designed for married couples to reconnect and strengthen their marriages. Dennis Rainey, Alistair Begg, and other speakers and entertainers will be sharing from the stage. The conference will be hosted live at the church and simulcast nationwide to thousands of churches! It’s an exciting event and we’d love to see the Worship Center filled with couples committed to their marriage, especially in light of the recent Supreme Court decision.
