"Knowing God... Making God Known"

Text: Psalm 32

In the Christian life it is healthy to think back over the year.  The following categories are designed to help you with that review.

1) Worshiping - How much time over the past year was spent in ascribing worth to God? (Jude 24-25)

2) Feeding - How much time over the past year was spent chewing on the Word of God? (1 Peter 1:22-2:3)

3)How much time over the past year was spent in prayer, bringing our requests to him? (Phil. 4:6-7)

4) Serving - How much time over the past year was given serving the Lord? (Romans 1:1)

Text: Ephesians 4:1

Principle # 1-The supreme objective of the church is to Glorify God:

*By Submitting to His plan
*By Acknowledging His provision
*By Trusting His protection

Principle # 2- God desires that we (the church) live a balanced life. 

* Worthy-is a word describing “equal weight.” In other words, there is to be a balance in our lives.  We are not only to know and understand who we are in Christ and the priceless blessings of being a Christian, but we are to walk in right relationship to our calling all for His glory!

* This idea of being balanced (calling and conduct) is throughout  the writings of Paul.
* Philippians 1:27- “walk in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ…”
* Colossians 1:9-10
* I Thessalonians 2:12: “…walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.”

The Keys to Balance:
Humility-to think low; modest; without arrogance. 

* Gentleness-not consumed with self-importance; meek.  It is a word that describes a person who has consideration for others.
* Patience-long-tempered; the ability to endure without retaliation.
* Forbearance-show tolerance; to bear up under the faults of others.


* What areas in my life are out of balance?
* What relationships suffer the most during my inconsistency?
* What key component is most challenging in my life?
