Supplements aren't a substitute


Church Family,

They say you can’t out work your diet when trying to lose weight. Your exercise/workout supplements your weight loss, but proper eating is the most important part. Some even use supplements to help burn fat, curb hunger, or gain muscle.

God has given us supplements for our Faith.

2 Peter 1:5-9 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 6and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,7and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.

I’ve met a lot of people who have all of the supplements but no Faith. They are “good” people(although no one is good, no not one- Romans 3:9-10). When we trust in the supplements, but lack the foundation we are doing it for nothing. We can become discouraged, worn down, or worse, we could remain lost and spent eternity separated from God. The bible tells us that we are saved by grace through Faith, it is not of works.

Can I encourage you to supplement your Faith, but never value the supplement over your Faith?

Reminders:

  1. Prayer meeting tonight. We need your help after the service to help setup for Homecoming! This is a church event, so we need the whole church to help.
  2. Homecoming this Sunday with Lanier Singleton. We are taking a church family picture immediately after the service. Also bring lunch with you.

Love, Serve, Go
