Strengthening Spiritual Stability

Dear Mosaic Family, How's your balance? How's your physical stability? One of the things most gym-novices don't understand is that there are two generic types of muscles: movers and stabilizers. Movers are the muscles that actively create movement (quads, hamstrings, pecs, lats, biceps, triceps), while stabilizers provide balance and support.  When most people start going to the gym, they strictly work their movers. However, if you don't work your stabilizers (which are often smaller and seemingly less important), your movement will be hampered and you might become more susceptible to injury. If the stabilizers are weak, your movement will always lack stability and you will never attain your full physical potential. Same goes for the spiritual life! One of the absolutely hardest things about the Christian life is the constancy or stability required by the Lord. Jesus calls us to deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow him daily.  Even St. Paul had struggles with spiritual stability. In Romans 7, he writes "For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate... For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing."

Join us tomorrow as we look at Philippians 4:1-9 to discover the 5 spiritual stabilizers and how we can work to develop them.

Praying for you, Pastor Jan
