2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (NIV)
We are currently in the midst of a sermon series titled “Words to Live By” at Granger Good Shepherd. The title and many ideas are borrowed from Life.Church and Pastor Craig Groeschel. The big idea is that the direction our life takes follows our strongest thoughts.
In 2018, let’s make every effort to choose life giving thoughts and words. God gives us the free will and the power to choose the thoughts and words we live by. God supplies them to us through the Bible, prayer, Christian fellowship and service—and above all in Jesus.
I am a big Switchfoot fan. If you like to rock their song The War Inside captures the big idea in a way you may enjoy.
Yeah, it's where the fight begins
Yeah, underneath the skin
Between these hopes and where we've been
Every fight comes from the fight within
I am the war inside; I am the battle line
I am the rising tide; I am the war I fight
Beneath these dreams and what we've seen
We are the kids of the in-between
Age don't matter like
Race don't matter like
Place don't matter like what's inside
Yeah, every thought or deed
Yeah, every tree or seed
The big things come from the little dreams
Every world is made by make believe
