Scriptures: James 4:13-17, Proverbs 27:1

Every Christ-follower has a mission in life given by God. Real faith lives each and every day surrendered to the will of God, for His purpose and for His glory. In this message, Dr. Merritt challenges believers to live as if each day were their last. The book of James emphasizes this "in the moment" living--not looking to tomorrow, but living today to the fullest. Our problem as believers, however, is really not making plans for the future--it's making those plans without God.

"Our knowledge seems so impressive. We can split atoms, build skyscrapers, transplant kidneys, program computers, and even send a man to the moon, yet we don’t even know what is going to happen tomorrow. We still have this strange idea that we are in charge of our lives." --Dr. Merritt
