When we were on vacation a few weeks ago, my sister Ashley treated the girls (Zoe and her three Drake cousins) to airbrush tattoos. As is clear in the picture above, Zoe loved getting hers. That attitude of excitement was true of all four girls, from the process of picking out the tattoo to getting it applied to their skin.
While every single one of us is uniquely designed by God and not meant to be the same, we are to have the same attitude when it comes to following Jesus Christ. Does it mean we will look the same or be the same? No. But, it does mean that, by the grace of God and the work of His Spirit in our lives, we will have a biblical attitude.
This morning during our worship service with Richland Baptist Church, I preached on “The Attitude of Discipleship” (Mark 9:33-50).
Below is the entirety of a video I showed a portion of at the beginning of my message, illustrating what happens when we begin to have backwards thinking (or a backwards attitude).
God created us for Himself, and if we try to live for another purpose, we will never be satisfied. What is your attitude when it comes to following the Lord?
