“Jesus is Life to Me” Colossians 3:1-11

Dr. Parrott’s NEW BOOK Release

Thomas Nelson will release the second book in the company’s new Refraction series, “The Reluctant Journey”, on October 14th. Written by noted author and Trevecca Nazarene University professor, Dr. Richard Leslie Parrott, the book shows you how to fulfill God’s purpose for your life.

Where’s My Place of Service?    –  Richard Leslie Parrott, Ph.D.

Where’s My Place of Service? – Richard Leslie Parrott, Ph.D.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what God wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Hope in God “Is anything too hard for the Lord” (Genesis 18:14).

One student did not share the sense of encouragement and empowerment. We talked together for a few minutes at the close of the day. My young friend was from Korea where he had lived all his life. For his lifetime, the demilitarized zone dividing his homeland. “It is hard to hope and have faith when I see my broken country.” We pray together. I asked him to meet me before class the next day.
