And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Let your love for God and your gratitude for His mercy and goodness inspire you to share His love with others. Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father may be glorified. We need to do something, help somebody, invite someone because if we don’t then who will?
Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Mothers deserve to be appreciated for all they do for their families. Much of what they do is unseen and undervalued. They make sacrifices without hesitation all in the name of love. Give thanks to God for your mother and ask Him to bless her in a special way.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
I am a witness to the changes God has made in my life. I am no longer the same and now through the power of the Holy Spirit I am a witness to God’s message of love and forgiveness. You too are a witness and can share what the Lord has done for you.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
One of the ways to build your relationship with God is to spend time with Him in prayer. Dedicate time each and every day to talk with the Lord and to listen to what He has to say to you. Praise Him for all that He is and thank Him for His love and mercy.
And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.
Be so full of God’s love and joy that it spills over into the lives of those who also need Him. Give yourself fully to God and allow Him to use you for His purpose, let Him work through you to help others.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.” Those are the times you have to accept that you will not understand everything God is doing and you just have to trust that everything He does is done out of love for you.
Verse of the Day: Luke 6:32 If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.
It’s easy to love someone who loves you and is good to you. The challenge then is to love the unlovable, those who have been forgotten by society. Start seeing them the way God sees them, love them, do good for them and pray for them.
