Day 14 - Philippians 3:3

Heard a great mixed metaphor the other day:
    "Hey, its not rocket surgery!"

Ah… was that supposed to be rocket science or brain surgery?
Doesn't matter. The point is, it ain't that complicated.

The following chart describes the process of spiritual growth.
Hey, it ain't rocket surgery!


Paul’s words to the Philippians clarify it a bit more: 
For we are...the ones who serve by the Spirit of God, boast in Christ Jesus, and do not put confidence in the flesh… ~Philippians 3:3. 

Here's what spiritual maturity is about:
   • Serving God as we are lead by the Holy Spirit
   • Boasting in the work of Jesus Christ, not in our accomplishments
   • Putting our confidence in God's resources, not our own abilities

That's it. Hey, it ain't rocket surgery!
