Happy Monday Clemson FCA! It was so special to have so many families gather together for FCA on Friday night. We enjoyed hearing from Adam Tarnow from Watermark Community Church in Texas.
Adam preached on the passage of 1 Peter 4: 7-11
“The end of all things is near. Therefore, be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
The end is near for all of us, now is the time to do something. What are some ways that we can avoid wasting our lives? If the end of all things is near, now is the time to be alert.
1. Be Self Controlled
If we aren’t self-controlled, we will be giving into every desire that we have. Most of these desires will be sinful desires and sin is a waste of our time.
2. Be Selfless
Selfishness overpromises and under delivers. Selfishness always takes more than it gives.
Matthew 16: 24-26
“Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”
Your talent and treasures are not for you, they are to be shared.
3. Be a Steward
Do not miss out on the joy of being a steward. God has gifted us all with special gifts and people on this campus need your gifts. Do not waste your life.
