Seek the Lord

1 12-28 1 Jeremiah 29 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

 

When you seek the Lord with a sincere heart you will find Him.  God hears your prayers and knows yours heart.  God promises that if you humble yourself, pray, seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways He will hear you.  God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you but it’s up to you to seek Him.

Serving

1 12-4 1 Mark 10 45

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 

Even though Jesus was born King, by His own example He teaches us humility.  The Bible says that Jesus did not come to be served but to serve.  As ambassadors of Christ our lives should exemplify His traits and should reflect Christ in us. Let’s follow His example of humility by serving the less fortunate this holiday season and throughout the year.

Happy Veterans Day!

1 11-11 1 Galatians 5 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:13

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

 

To all Veterans who have served our great nation in the United States Armed Forces:  We thank you, honor you and respect you for all you have sacrificed for our freedom.  May God bless you always.

Don’t Give Up, Give It All to God

1 11-9 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Acts 20:19

I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing (by the plots of my Jewish opponents).

 

There are times when we will go through something so difficult we cannot see the light of day through our tears and our faith is being severely tested. You might even feel like giving up on God but that’s when you need Him most.  Prayer is the most powerful weapon you have.  Cry out to God, He hears you and He loves you. Don’t give up instead give it all to God.

Humility is Strength

1 Ephesians 4 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 4:2

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 

Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind to others.  Humility doesn’t mean being weak, it’s actually the opposite.  It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.

Why Should We Serve?

Mark 10:45

Verse of the Day: Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 

As followers of Jesus Christ we should follow the example he set for us when he came to serve, and not to be served. He showed us how to help the weak and we must, with humility and love, also do the same. How wonderful it is to serve God by serving others.

Verse of the Day: Luke 6:31

Verse of the Day:  Luke 6:31

Luke 6:31

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

 

Love is not rude.   Who likes to be around an unpleasant person?  No one that’s who.  When you’re the one being rude you don’t see it as such a big deal.  Oh, but when someone is being rude to you it is a very big deal.  Sometimes we even treat friends, coworkers, or total strangers better than we treat our spouse.  The bottom line is we need to treat others the way we would like to be treated and we need to act in a way that makes us a pleasure to be around.
