I like a lot about the way things are in my life…do I need to change?

Paul writes that the the love of Christ urges us on.  We are always being challenged to grow in seeing things from Christ’s point of view.  When we commit to growing in Christ-like-ness, that becomes our measure of what our life is all about. I can’t see how we can do this and not be changed.  Maybe this is what Paul’s message in our reading this week is all about…when he talks about dying and rising, he isn’t talking literally dying, he’s talking about dying to our current way of being in order to make space for something new.  – Pastor Trudy Stoffel
