FROM THE PASTORFrom the Pastor

“Redeem the time because the days are evil.”

Ephesians 5:16


  1. Bitterness will destroy your spiritual life and take others down with you (Hebrews 12:15).

  2. Use your time, your money, and your resources only for yourself and your needs.
    In other words, live life for yourself (and your immediate family) rather than for others.

  3. Spend little to no time with the Lord in solitude – just you and Him alone.
    Fill your life with all sorts of other activities. Stay busy.

  4. Neglect reading the Scriptures.
    They reveal Christ and contain God’s life (John 5:39; 6:63; 2 Timothy 3:16). They are food for your spirit. To neglect them is to starve your spirit.

  5. Defame others or misrepresent them or their work (especially fellow believers).
    Don’t go to them directly if you have a concern or problem and ask them for clarity. (And if you do go to them, don’t listen to what they have to say.) Be not deceived: To speak ill about or misrepresent another follower of Jesus is to speak ill about or misrepresent Jesus Himself. And He doesn’t take it kindly (Matthew 25:40; Acts 9:1-4; Titus 3:2).

  6. Rarely (or never) read books with spiritual depth
    ...or listen to Christ-centered messages by other servants of God. Forget the contribution of the body of Christ, past and present. Throw out spiritual education. Live under the delusion that all you need is the Holy Spirit and your Bible.

  7. Have no fellowship or relationship with other believers.
    Live as a solo Christian. Use the excuse that you can’t find any other Christians who love Jesus like you do.

  8. Let envy and jealousy take hold of your heart and drive your actions.
    Envy and jealousy is often the root behind slander. Incidentally, countless Christians don’t know what slander looks like and fail to recognize it when it’s right in front of them. Engaging in or listening to slander proves toxic to your spiritual life.

  9. Never learn from your mistakes nor take responsibility for them.
    Blame others instead. And never apologize to the people you’ve wronged.

  10. Waste every crisis that comes into your life.
    A crisis is a difficult and unwelcome opportunity to discover Jesus in a new way. Don’t look for the hand of God behind the crisis or submit to it. Forget James and Peter who both said, “Humble yourself under God’s mighty hand, and He will exalt you.” (1 Peter 5:7; James 4:10) Instead, Blame God.
