Welcome to GracePoint Church, where we are committed to helping you take your next steps toward knowing and serving a holy God of grace and truth

What are three of the most important household items that you use daily? Typically, that list might include item like our computer, sofa, TV, chairs, tables or desk. But someone noted that their wastebasket is one of the most useful items in their lives, both at home and at the office.

True! Without the ability to discard the useless, we would limit our ability to focus on the necessary. This principle not only applies to the management of physical clutter, but to that which clutters our minds and souls as well.

There are dozens of verses in the Bible that encourage God’s people to “put away” things like gossip, anger, hypocrisy, lying, fear, and worry (to name just a few). Confessing those actions as sins and walking in God’s truth is like throwing away garbage and re-focusing on things that glorify God.

This next week will offer each of us many spiritual opportunities to either “take out the trash” with repentance or “let the garbage pile up”.

The Apostle Paul says it like this: “Put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24)

Let’s encourage one another to become intentional about taking next steps, in daily actions, that glorify our Lord.

From a Shepherd’s Heart,
Pastor Perry Kallis


 

It is spelled ‘faux’, but it is pronounced “foe”. It is a French word that means “fake”. Manufacturers sometimes put that word in front of something genuine to spin the truth, as in “faux leather” or “faux fur”. It sounds better than saying “this is a cheap, plastic version of the genuine article”. As the Apostle Paul ends the fourth chapter of Ephesians, he warns believers not to slip into wrong behaviors and thereby practice a “faux faith”. This passage is one of the most practical in the Bible that instructs us how to behave as genuine believers in ways that honor Christ.
