Today is day 21 of the #31DaystoWrite challenge along with day 21 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge and the October NaBloPoMo challenge for October. I am still here and participating. I have really enjoyed writing this series. Today I want to continue my series on Scriptures of Faith. Today
Many times as Christians we find ourselves focusing on reaching the lost and we forget the actual members of our churches and bodies of believers. We need to focus on loving and living with those believers we worship with regularly. We need to love and show charity to fellow believers. We need to demonstrate the Light of Christ in everything we do and everywhere we are. We never know who is watching us and needs to feel the love of Christ at any given moment. We need to be the hands, feet, mouth, ears and hearts of Christ. It is important to stretch ourselves and spend time in the Word and with God so we build our own relationships with Christ.
So what is up in your corner of the world? I would love to hear from you! May God bless you in everything you do today.
Today is day 16 of the #31DaystoWrite challenge, the NaBloPoMo challenge for October and the Ultimate Blog challenge – all of which I am participating. Today I want to continue my Scriptures of Faith series. The passage today may be found in Galatians 5. It is most commonly known as the Fruits of the Spirit. These verses tell us what are the Fruits of the Spirit. Several years ago I had the privilege of being the Missionette leader at the church we were attending at the time for my daughter and some other young ladies. The “Fruits of the Spirit” badge was one of my favorite ones we worked on while I was a leader. These verses tell us what characteristics or traits we should focus on in our lives. One of these fruits is faith. When we rely on our faith, we are strengthened by the power and protection of God. He wants us to rely on Him rather than ourselves. Man is fallible but God is not. Man sins, but God does not. Man falls and stumbles, but God does not. So which is the better one to rely on? As Joshua states in
Joshua 24:15King James Version (KJV)
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
I would prefer to serve our mighty God than to rely on my self.
So what is going on in your corner of the world today? I would love to hear from you.
Today is day 15 of the #31daystowrite challenge along with day 15 of the Ultimate Blog challenge. I am continuing my #ScripturesofFaith series. Today I want to look at Galatians 3:11. We are instructed that we are not justified by the law, but that we must live by faith. Unlike the children of Israel, once Jesus Christ came and died on the Cross for our sins, we were freed from the burden of the law of having to go through a middle man – the priests – and we were able to come and speak to God directly. We are required to have faith in Jesus Christ and His dying on the Cross for our sins. He came that we might “have live and have it more abundantly. We received the blessing of eternal life by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior.
While no good deeds we do can bring us salvation, having an open heart and an open mind to believe in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior provides us with eternal life.
So have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior? I would love to “hear” from you!
Today’s Scripture verse is Galatians 3:26.
