9 questions you need to ask yourself…

24 02 2011

My good friend Matt Van Cleave spoke at Cornerstone Fellowship this weekend and posed 9 powerful, thought provoking questions. I’ve listed them below. If you would like to listen to Matt’s full message on grace, click here.

  1. Why would I live my life saying “I can’t” when Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”?
  2. Why would I live my life in worry when Philippians 4:19 tells me, “God will supply all my needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus”?
  3. Why would I have fear in my heart when 2 Timothy 1:7 tells me, “God did not give me a spirit of fear, but one of love and power and self discipline”?
  4. Why should I lack wisdom when James 1:5 says, “God would give it to me generously if I just ask for it”?
  5. Why should I go around shackled in the chains of my past knowing that 2 Corinthians 3:17 says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom”?
  6. Why should I feel dead in my sin when Colossians 2:13 assures me, “God made me alive with Christ, for he forgave all my sins”?
  7. Why should I ever feel alone when Jesus plainly said in Matthew 28:20, “he would always be with me”?
  8. Why should I shrink back from doing what I need to do when Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for me, who can be against me?”
  9. Why should I complain when Philippians 4:11 says, “I can learn to be content in all situations”?
