Sermons about Intentional
This short passage is a summary of Paul's thoughts from chapter two. It is a simple yet powerful prescription for success in sanctification. Sanctification is the process that Christians undergo as they are transformed into Christ likeness. The result of sanctification is glory. The prescription for success includes union with Christ as well as our actions and the proper directing of our attention. Sanctification is not for the elite but for all that have union with Christ, all believers.

We need to intentionally pursue healthy relationships; intentionally shield ourselves from those with anger issues; intentionally choose who we are going to look up to; and intentionally position ourselves to grow as a person. Our friends determine the direction and quality of our life.

Many of us are forgetful. We forget to pick up an item at the store, whose turn it is to pick up the kids, the phone message we failed to write down because - "Oh I'll just remember it"... (Need I give more examples?). Yet in the big picture, those are trivial. This sermon kicks off a series which, right now, is headed only God knows where. Yet just to get you thinking...Christmas was celebrated about half a month ago now. How many of us have sat and pondered the implications of that day for our lives? Do we realize the “Christ Event” has the power to shape our present and chart a course for our future? Or have we returned to the routine of our daily lives having already “forgotten” what took place nearly 2,000 years ago now?
