Your Rights

1 corinthians 10 23.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Honestly, this lesson is hard for many to learn.  You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian.  Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you.  Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you comes with spiritual maturity.

Generous and Compassionate    

Proverbs 22 9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:9

The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

 

God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others as well. We serve a compassionate God and this creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more.  We can never out give God.

Apply God’s Word

James 1 22

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:22

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

 

If you are listening to the word of God but not applying it to your life and expecting your life to change you’re fooling yourself.  That would be like reading about a diet then eating junk food and expecting to lose weight.  You have to apply it to your life, you have to change your habits and it has to be a way of life not just a Sunday event.

Grow

2 Peter 3 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Peter 3:18

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

 

Christianity is long-term, it’s for all eternity but we can’t just stay where we are today we must continue to grow in our relationship and faith in Jesus. Reading, studying and applying the Bible to your life will help you grow closer to Jesus Christ our Savior.

Joy

Proverbs 17 22

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 17:22

A joyful heart is good medicine.

 

Feeling joy in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems.  To find joy in your life focus on the good and be grateful for what you have. It’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy.   Give thanks to the Lord for in his presence is fullness of joy.

Courage to Share Your Story

Acts 4 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 4:13

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

 

You don’t have to be an eloquent speaker to have the courage to tell people about Jesus.  All you need is the willingness to share your own story. Just tell others what God’s love, goodness, grace and mercy has done in your life.

With Love

1 Corinthians 16 14

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 16:14

Do everything in love.

 

Because of God’s love for you and your love for him everything you do should be done with love.  From the simplest of things to the greatest, do it all with the love of God in your heart.
