Policy guidelines are not meant to be burdensome, rather, they make life run more smoothly for everyone.  However, our selfish nature is apt to rebel at any law or guideline.  Please reject the “me first…I count most” attitude of the sinful nature.  In a spirit of humble repentance put your trust in Jesus who made his own life and death count for you.  Find your strength for godly living, for obedience, for consideration of others, for helpfulness and patience…find your strength for all of this in Jesus your Savior, in his blood-bought forgiveness and in his powerful resurrection. The Apostle Paul writes about the Christian life and says:

 

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I live in the body I live by faith in  the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
— Galatians 2:20
