God is faithful. Philippians 1:6 teaches us that God starts the work in us. He keeps us from falling (Jude 1:24). God equips us to do His will (Hebrews 13:20-21), and He promises to complete His work (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24). What is the greatest miracle? The greatest miracle of all is the transformation of a sinner into a saint. Has there ever been a time that God started a good work in you? If not, God wants to, and He can today! Simply place yourself in His hands.
Special thanks to Ron Roberts who shared his testimony of his trials and struggles, his faith in God, and how God has taken care of him. Thank you also to Brother Dan, our Guest Speaker from Gideons International.
Move to a Different Turf
Many Christians today are on board for the parties and the potlucks. However, when it comes to discipline, training, memorizing scripture, and being held accountable, sometimes they get angry. God desires for everybody to have such a great desire in our hearts that we would reflect the love and compassion of Jesus – not just at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, but every morning and all day long. His desire is for us to be eager to share the Good News. His desire is for us to have a deeper walk with Him. If we are not reflecting the love of Christ and the compassion of Jesus as we know we should, God is calling you out. He has more for you that what you are experiencing. God calls every Christian from the wiffle ball field to the big leagues – to a different turf – to be a fully committed, passionate follower of the Lord Jesus.
Are we living with the end in view? This past week, have you been thinking about the things of God or focused on the things of man? Are you where God wants you to be? Is God calling you out?
