-Rebel against self-centeredness!

WORK HARD & SET GOALS!
-Rebel against laziness!
Proverbs 13:4 "Lazy people want much but get little,
but those who work hard will prosper."
JOIN FORCES WITH OTHERS!
-Rebel against individualism!
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
CONTRIBUTE TO GOD’S GLOBAL CONCERNS!
-Rebel against narrowness!
Colossians 1:6 "This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God's wonderful grace."
