We spread the message about Christ as we instruct and teach everyone with all the wisdom there is. We want to present everyone as mature Christian people.
Until I get there, concentrate on reading ⌊Scripture⌋ in worship, giving encouraging messages, and teaching people.
Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him because God’s temple is holy. You are that holy temple!
The word of the Lord is sharper than any two edged sword.
It cuts to the bone.
It cuts to the heart of the matter.
That’s why it’s important to study and know Scripture.
When I’m doing well, I’m in the word daily.
It keeps me sane in this insane world.
Apart from fellowship with mature Christians, where can one find the voice of reason?
The truth is hidden in Christ.
That’s why we must continually remind ourselves and others about the Gospel.
Always think about Jesus and what He has done for you.
Meditate on it.
He saved you.
He set you free.
The Holy Spirit now lives inside of you.
Your old way of life is gone.
Behold, all things are new.
Christ gives us new life.
A vibrant, abundant, joyful life.
When the minutiae of this world starts getting you down, adjust your sights.
Don’t look at everything that’s wrong with this world.
Keep your eyes on Jesus, and know that everything will be alright.
We will suffer.
We will be persecuted.
People will take advantage of your kindness.
It’s not your fault if they don’t honor God.
Everyone will answer for their own sins.
Do your part.
Don’t compare yourself to others.
As a Christian, you are a representative of God’s Kingdom here on Earth.
People are watching you.
They want you to fail.
They are looking for an excuse to say it’s not even worth trying to serve God.
Don’t give in.
Don’t play their game.
When you are wrong, admit it.
Model correct behavior.
If you don’t know what that is, read the New Testament continually.
Eventually, it will stick.
Better yet, read it with a friend and hold each other accountable to live in Christ.
We can’t wait for someone else to do the right thing.
We must obey God and His commandments.
He commands us to love.
Get a complete understanding of Christ.
And share it with everyone you know.
Lord God, I pray for myself and anyone reading this post.
Illuminate our minds and our hearts with all wisdom and knowledge.
We want to know You, Lord.
To know You is to live.
Help us to understand the mystery of Christ fully.
Help us to be able to explain it clearly.
Give us boldness in our faith to share it in a gentle, respectful, and reverent way.
Help us to be Your Love.
We give our lives to You this day.
In Jesus’ Name we pray.
