We are called to follow the light of Christ. We are called to exercise spiritual discernment. We are called to know Jesus. We are called to place our faith and trust in Jesus.
There will always be new ministry challenges. There will always be new moral dilemmas. We need to be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. We have no right to be in contempt of anyone. In Christ we can experience God’s amazing grace. We need to go and sin no more.
We need to put our trust in Jesus. Jesus will quench your thirst. Rivers of living water will flow from your heart. You will be filled with His Spirit.
Some just want to see signs from God. Some just want to make demands on God. Some just want to grumble against God. Some just want to argue. Some will choose to be offended by what Jesus said. But Jesus is the only One who has words of life.
We need to Tell of: His grace and mercy. His presence and power. His comfort and guidance. His faithfulness and goodness. His provision and protection. We need to Get the Word Out
Jesus knows our weaknesses. We don’t have to be afraid even when things look scary. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus. We need to make sure we are in the boat with Jesus. Jesus knows our motivations. We need to strive after spiritual nourishment. We simply need to believe in Jesus.
We need to be ready for spiritual pop quizzes. God already has the solutions to our problems. God’s economy is bigger than ours. God can handle all our difficult circumstances.
We know that Jesus is the Son of God because: Jesus fulfilled the will of His Father. John the Baptist’s Testimony is true. All His works were miraculous. The entire Bible points to Jesus.
Jesus is one with the Father. We need to believe Jesus’ Word. Jesus is the resurrection and the life.
All of us are susceptible to disease, sickness, and death. Jesus is our Great Physician. We need to faithfully follow after Jesus.
We need to be ready: for God’s divine appointments to be all things to all people to offer Living Water to thirsty souls to find ways to touch the hearts and lives of others to help others to worship God in spirit and truth to show others who Jesus is to do what God has called us to do.
We need to spend time with our Savior. We need to help people identify with Christ. We need to serve God while there is still time. We need to avoid petty disputes. We need to avoid ministry competition. We need to point people to Christ.
