Here's To Growing Up
Back in May we held an event in Cambridge titled 'Making The Ordinary Extraordinary'. This is Lucy's talk from that evening on the passage included below - we hope you enjoy it! x
Place Your Life Before God (Romans 12:1-2, MSG)
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 recognise what he 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.
