“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” -Ephesians 4: 15
Who has loved you and loved your common purpose enough to confront you on your sin, your compromises, your hypocrisy or your apathy? Victory rarely happens on the field or off without leadership. Who has told you how it is? Who has put their relationship with you on the line because they loved you more than they loved being close to you at that moment? Give thanks today for the few, the proud, “Your Confronters.” Thank God for the coaches he has put in your life who have called you out and expected more from you than you expected of yourself. Do you have anyone in your life today that would speak the truth to you in love? Sometimes these specific challenges come from our ministry leaders, Bible Talk leaders, spouses and close friends and sometimes they come from more unexpected places like idealistic young christians, our children, our non-christian friends, etc. Who needs you to be their coach confronter today? They will thank you later if you speak the truth in love.
HOMEWORK: Today your homework is watching the 6 minute clip about the power of confrontation and expectation.
Have fun growing in gratitude today. Hope this helps. See you tomorrow,
