A God-Balanced Life: Who or What Are You Yoked Up With?
When I speak about being balanced, I am referring to a balance in living a spiritual lifestyle–a balance in living by the Word of God. God has placed value on your life, whether you have made Him Lord and Savior or not. And He desires that you live up to that value. What value do you place on your own life? How do you compare your life versus that of an unsaved person? God took an appraisal of humans and placed such value on it that He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross as a way of reconciling us back in relationship with Him. I was lost. You were lost. God said, “No, no.” We are too valuable to leave in a fallen state. Balancing how you live means weighing advantages against disadvantages of every area of your life because there are consequences to your actions. Living an unbalanced life means there is a contrast between your way of living and the way God desires for you to live. This is what this book, A God-Balanced Life, is about. It’s about the whole man–spirit, body, and soul. It is written to focus on the whole person, the person that you see every time you look into a mirror–you. Our life should be a mirror to the world that reflects the image of Christ. Imagine your life being a scale and the scale is balanced by how you should live it. And how you live is based on the Word of God. Your way of living should be balanced by God’s word. Let’s get ready to live a God-balanced life.
Imbalance leads to unstable. Unstable leads to discontentment. Discontentment leads to never knowing what it means to be fulfilled in Christ.
A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is his delight.
