There would be pain here: The pain that comes from swallowing his pride and allowing his relationship with Jesus to be the thing that makes him perfect, not his ability to know and obey the Law.
And also, the pain one experiences when you have to rely on someone else for all of your needs instead of yourself. The Challenge Well, all of this discussion about change brings us to a change that I would like to challenge each of us with.
Here's the challenge: I want us to decide if our faith is going to be "a part" of our lives or if our faith will become our lives. Oh, but there are blessings that come to us when this change is made: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied. Matthew Only those whose faith is their lives are hungry and thirsty for righteousness and they will be satisfied. When your faith is your life, you are at peace with God, satisfied in the deepest regions of your soul.

Teaching to Change Lives by Dr. Howard Hendricks - WaterBrook & Multnomah
Summary Congregations always have many projects going on seminars, outreach programs, mission trips, etc. So, how will we know if the faith challenge has been accepted? This will be evident and easy to see because: There will be more people in Bible study and worship services because doing so is a faith thing. Members will be bringing more guests because people who do this are acting out of faith. Parents will make a point of having their children in Bible class because they are through faith investing in the future spiritual lives of their children by doing this.
The offering will go up dramatically because giving sacrificially is a sign of a faith-centered life. More members will be active and involved. Some who have not done much beyond attending services will add to his by finding additional ways to serve or be involved. Others will find new ways to serve in addition to what they are doing now.
Those who have been given responsibilities and have neglected them for whatever reason will begin again to do their jobs and even train others for service. There will be more love among members, more joy on the faces of the breather, more willingness to sacrifice, forgive, let go old grudges and hurts all motivated by the power of faith.
In Malachi He tells the people Maybe the change necessary is one that only God can see, for example: Abandoning a secret sin, obsession or addiction Perhaps giving up a grudge or negative attitude toward some you who may have offended you Or maybe you need greater faith to enable you to persevere in a difficult situation or relationship There are moments in life when a change is necessary or due.

In addition to the material, you want to teach people how to think, how to learn, and how to work at learning. These skills involve teaching students how to read, how to write, and how to listen.
