BIG IDEA: God calls the Unrighteous to become Righteous
Sometimes what seems to make living for Jesus so difficult is needing to live with difficult, unlovable people! Right? God calls His church to be righteous amongst the unrighteous. But this motivation and power to live righteously is rooted not in our own goodness or effort, but in God's grace to us in Jesus Christ. When we please Jesus first, that's a game changer.
The Next Steps:
1) Bless unbelievers
2) Bond with believers
3) Boast in God's goodness!
