Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

guardrails...


guardrail
(a barrier protecting against an area of danger)


Our pastor, this last Sunday,
gave an excellent sermon on
“Guardrails (direct and protect)”.

His definition of guardrail
as it pertains to us...
“A personal standard of behavior
that becomes a matter of conscience.”

We have a tendency to try to get
as close to sin without sinning.

If we do not heed to the warnings
we have a real danger of
losing control which leads to disaster.

We must embrace God's will for our lives
by establishing our own personal guardrails
and listen to our conscience via
the Holy Spirits guidance.

Stay away from places and things
where temptation will be strong.

Let our guardrails show us
and remind us of areas
where we do not want to go.
