Yesterday we heard a wonderful sermon at New Joy Church about Building Bridges to a Great Life in Christ. You can read all the specifics at their website.
Pastor Rich used 2 Corinthians 4 and talked about three markers to have in our lives:
Mercy Motivation - we need to be motivated my God's mercy to us, and show mercy to others (2 Cor. 4:13-14)
Faithful Determination - We need to be determined to stay faithful (2 Cor. 4:1, 16 and 2 Timothy 4:7) Do not lose heart! Fight the good fight, finish the race, keep the faith.
Authentic Vision - We need to keep our eyes on God. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
