Have you ever met anyone who was their own worst enemy? Someone who undermined their relationships, career, finances, or success? It’s hard to watch. But the truth is, we all have the potential to be our own worst enemy. In this series, Andy Stanley shares three practical principles that can help us avoid becoming our own worst enemy.
Whether it’s sitting next to a new friend at lunch, going to a birthday party, or watching a game at someone’s house, all of us have benefited from someone inviting us to something. But there’s an invitation we can extend that may change someone’s life forever. And the opportunity to extend that invitation exists now more than ever.
I can’t believe I said that. Why did I do that? Where did that come from? Emotions can get the best of us. If we’re not careful, things like anger, lust, greed, fear, and envy can shape our actions much more than we want them to. Monitoring our behavior is not enough. We need to monitor our hearts.
Has it ever felt like church is only for church people? Like Sundays are great for people who are already in the club, but for the rest of us there’s just something missing? But when we look at the way the church launched in the first century, nothing could be further from the truth.
The Church is remarkable. And against all odds, it changed the world. There is still a great deal that needs changing. By God’s grace and with your help, perhaps we can be a small part of bringing about that change.
