5 things I run towards to keep growing.

St. Gregory of Nyssa “Sin happens whenever we refuse to keep growing.”

2 Timothy 2:21-22 NLT If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work. 22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.

When you become complacent sin creeps in and we are fighting against God's grace to be used.  We should run from the things that cause us to wither and run towards the things that cause us the grow

If I want to get in shape I need to run from Dr. Pepper(Lord help) and run towards, well running.

5 things I run towards to keep growing.

1. Run towards things that are right in God's eyes.
2. Run towards being faithful to God, family, church, nation, my values.
3. Run towards love and away from accusing, unforgiveness, and us verses them mentality.
4. Run towards peace, a life of wholeness that is not looking for a bloody outcome with those I disagree with.
5. Run towards those who say Jesus is Lord, who do right, are faithful, are loving, are peaceful.
