Went to InterVarsity’s Ignite 2010 conference this past weekend. It was awesome to see students passionate for God and passionate to hear him. Here is the video summary of the conference.
So I started reading Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper and it’s pretty interesting so far. One of the points that caught my attention was what he defined as a wasted life. He says, “God created me – and you – to live with a single, all-embracing, all-transforming passion – namely, a passion to glorify God by enjoying and displaying his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life…The wasted life is the life without a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples.”
I found this interesting because it really made me think if I enjoy and display his supreme excellence in all spheres of my life. I find that I sometimes will display his excellence without enjoying it. However, the joy in glorifying him will pour out from within me and display it for others to see. There are still a lot of parts of my life where I can do a better job in having a passion to glorify God.
As I read more from this book, I plan to share more about what God is teaching me from this book of how to not waste my life.
In today’s society, everything is about doing as many things at once in the shortest amount of time. When we do this though, we tend to forget to stop and appreciate the things we enjoy most in life. It’s getting close to finals time for many and the pressure and stress makes it tough to just stop, but sometimes we need that break. I want to encourage you to take at least 5 minutes each day to just stop everything you’re doing and relax. I personally like to go outside, pray and just enjoy the weather. You’ll definitely be more refreshed and less anxious. So slow down, take a break, enjoy life!
We will also be having Legacy Movement merchandise!
We are excited to see you all there!
