  3. JT – Question ONE

This is probably a loaded question and you covered it briefly in your blog, but “How can Christians be HALF BAKED?”

  1. Bob
  • Less than “all in”
  • Walk away from what God is doing
  • Mess around with things they shouldn’t

Luke 9:23 (ESV) — 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.


Hosea 7:8 (ESV) — 8 Ephraim mixes himself with the peoples; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

  1. (JT) “MENTAL CHECK” – How can a person know whether they are “all in or not?”

Matthew 15:8 (ESV) — 8 “ ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me;

  • Marathon training

Colossians 3:23–24 (ESV) — 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:17 (ESV) — 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

  1. (JT) We’ve both seen this “half baked” concept in physical activities… and we’ve been there and done that ourselves… so the question is what’s a person to do to keep that from happening in physical activities and training.
  2. (BOB) ---- FOCUS / rest / goals / plan
  • Marked out goals…

Philippians 3:14–16 (ESV) — 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.
