Monday Mission – Set Your Heading

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
— 1 Corinthians 10:31

Pilots have a rule called the “1 in 60 rule”. For every 1 degree you are off course, you will end up 1 mile further away from your destination for every 60 miles you travel. While one degree and one mile might not seem that much at first, the longer you travel at the wrong trajectory, the further off-course you get. For example, if you got on a plane in San Fransico headed for Washington DC that was off by 1 degree, you would end up 46+ miles away from DC on the other side of Baltimore. Suddenly that one degree seems like a much bigger deal.

The same is true in our faith. As Christians, we should be setting our heading on God and focusing on the life He has called us to. But sometimes things of this world can seem to get in the way. While a “small” sin like lying, swearing, or gossiping might not seem to have a big impact on your faith walk at first, left unchecked, that sin will continue to grow and grow, separating you further and further from God’s plans for you. The longer you travel “off course” the harder it will be to remove those sinful habits from your life and return to the righteous life you are called to live in Christ.

Thankfully we have a Savior who has paid the price for our sins and is eager to forgive us for our sins if we confess our wrongdoing and what has led us off course. The Lord has also provided a guide for us to keep us on the right heading – The Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit acts as our guide to keep us focused on God and provides us tools to stay fixed on the right course – “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7

Your Monday Mission this week is to set your heading on God & His will for your life!
