Not all Convenience is Good

21 PAX arrived at Sawmill today for a Guest Q from Binary.  It was a long time coming for Binary to return to the early confines of Sawmill and he was excited to #getbetter and #bebetter.  A coolness in the air finally returned as it was perfect conditions for today’s Workout.  The theme was “convenience” and the reality that sometimes convenience can be a danger to growth.

BOM – Binary

Binary spoke of the verse James 1:2 of how it says, “Whenever you face trials of many kinds, consider it pure joy.”  He emphasized that this verse clearly states we’ll face adversity.  It’s not a matter of if but when.  Therefore, we should use it as an opportunity for growth and to trust God will see us through.  He finished with Jesus’ words of “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart for I have overcome the world.”
