A Righteous Dissatisfaction (PM)

What is pulling at your heart saying “something is not right?”
A Righteous Dissatisfaction
Galatians 6:9

What are you dissatisfied with? Not a complaint session, no whining! But what is pulling at your heart saying "something is not right?" Should Christians ever be dissatisfied with anything? Can our frustration be a strength to achieving our goals? Let's answer a few questions and try to see how these struggles reveal our hearts desire for God's will in our lives!

1. ASSIMILATION TO THIS WORLD – John 15:18-19
  1. Our goal in life shouldn't be acceptance by the world - 1 Peter 1:1, 1 Peter 2:11-12 - Because they won't accept you anyway!
  2. Too often Christians seek the world's approval instead of God's approval, Philippians 3:17-20,
  3. God's approval is all that matters! - Philippians 3:21-4:1
  4. Instead we should invest in each other, because - Ephesians 2:19-22
  5. Let's strive to grow closer to our Christian family, relationships with the world will leave us dissatisfied, and in need of a deeper connection!
2. ARROGANCE IN OURSELVES - Luke 18:9-14
  1. So easy to become prideful about our doctrine, it's solid, it's sure. But teaching it to others seems to be a weakness of ours. Many times we sound arrogant, but Christ commands humbleness of heart! - Galatians 6:1-4
  2. Remember we're beneficiaries of God's grace, and we're called to welcome others into that grace also! – 2 Corinthians 3:1-6
  3. Arrogance should frustrate us, it should motivate us to seek humility! And to use our influence to encourage others to submit to the Lord!
3. APATHY TOWARDS OUR MISSION – Mark 14:32-38
  1. Nothing kills a church like apathy. But our default mode seems to be Complacency not urgency! - Romans 13:11-14
  2. Illus. "Excited to tell everyone; everything on FB!" "Football"
  3. Luke 12:16-21- Success feeds pride, and pride kills urgency. But our message IS urgent! – 2 Peter 3:10, Matthew 24:44
  4. Christians should have a HOLY DISSATISFACTION with apathy!
Conclusion:
  1. Stop feeling frustrated, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Seeking fulfillment in the pursuit of the things of this world will always frustrate you, satisfaction is only in Christ!
  2. ILLUSTRATION – "ALL IN ALL Lyrics"
