For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
Every word, every promise, everything He does is right and true. We can have confidence and believe it all because He is faithful. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is deserving of all praise for His truth, faithfulness and mercy.
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.
So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
Doing the right thing isn’t always easy, in fact it may be downright hard. If you know the right thing to do and you don’t do it, eventually, it will catch up to you one way or another and it will only make things worse. Admit your mistakes, learn from them, and strive to always do the right thing.
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Love is kind and your kindness shows compassion to the people you love. Sometimes we slip into a comfortable state where we take each other for granted, not intentionally, but it happens and we no longer go out of our way to be kind. The Bible tells us over and over that we should be kind to one another. How much more should we intentionally be kind to our loved ones? Let’s choose to go out of our way to show kindness to the people we love.
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
We have been chosen and adopted by God as His own children. His unshakable power lives in us and His Word is written on our hearts as we experience His truth. We have the victory over evil through Christ Jesus by faith.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
There is no denying that evil exists in this world. Some may ask why God allows horrible events to happen. The truth is we may never have the answer to this question. What we do know is that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to offer salvation to all. Even though we may suffer in this world, as Christians, we have the hope of eternal life with God.
For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
God had been tugging at my heart for many years but I was stubborn and wanted to do things my way. Eventually, I gave in and surrendered my life to God. It was the best decision I ever made. NOW is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed his call, today is the time to be saved. Don’t put it off until it’s too late.
