Until Christ Be Formed in You!


A new year on the way.  I have been giving some thought to the preaching ahead.  Still working it out in my head, but I think that I will be tackling the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew's Gospel and the Ten Commandments.  Looking at the Gospel of John and perhaps Jonah.  If there is more room, I may take on 1 Corinthians.  Who knows?

I do know that my controlling thought will be from Galatians:  Paul says to his beloved congregation in the Galatian churches:  "...My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!" (Gal 4:19 ESV).  That's my "year verse" for 2013.  Until Christ be formed in you.  Until Jesus Christ has thoroughly owned your heart, I won't rest.  I won't hear of "Good job, pastor" until we get that right.  Nothing will be good enough until we all arrive their together.  Of course, we know that we won't get there until we stand before the Throne in glory...but, we must never stop pushing and encouraging each other towards that end.
