God will always direct our paths as we walk with Him in integrity, peace, submission and love. As we depend on Him we can find the stability and security we are longing for in our lives.
We can leave a Godly legacy: By being prepared to die. By striving to raise an uncontentious family. By living a life of prayer. By not playing favorites. By not taking advantage of other people.
There are many churches that have become ineffective in their ministry as they have lost their vision and mission. But the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. The main thing by God’s grace is to make disciples who make disciples for the glory of God. Our Mission is to make disciples. Our Motive is love. God’s chosen Method of disciplemaking is through the church. It’s time to get into the game.
We need to do all we can to help our children find a godly spouse. We can help our children look for Christ-like character qualities in a future mate. As parents we can honor God as we raise our children, doing all we can to help them prepare for what God has for them.
God will surely test our faith from time to time. But He alone is worthy of our worship as He is the provider of all that we need. We need to make ourselves available to His loving work in our lives, laying everything on the altar as we eagerly comply with His call on our lives.
We don’t need to fear our circumstances, our future or other people. Rather, we need to fear God and God alone with a reverential awe. His love and compassion for us will dispel our fears. We can know with certainty that He will hear our cries, lift us up, and open our eyes to see Him for all that He is to us.
There are so many around us who just don’t realize what is at stake for them with regard to the moral decisions that they are making apart from God. How we respond to God is a matter of life and death. As God is in the process of saving us from the destructive power of sin through our faith in Christ, we need to do all that we can to help others know that He is our rescue.
As the church of Christ, we are called to: Walk in Unity, Minister in Unity, and Be firmly planted together in Christ
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
God is in the process of revealing Himself to us. He has chosen us for His divine purposes and reassured us with His promises. But there are those around us who are in grave danger of facing eternal consequences from a Holy and just God. We need to earnestly pray for those who are in harm’s way.
