Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Faith in Action: Thank the Lord for the peace that comes from having a personal relationship with Him. Because you trust in Him with all your heart, you can live at peace no matter what is happening around you.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Faith in Action: Jesus taught his followers to serve with humility. You can touch lives with your humble service to others by sharing the hope and love of Jesus Christ while serving the less fortunate. Do good, be rich in good works, ready to give and willing to share. (1 Timothy 6:18)
Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Faith in Action: Every good thing you have is a gift from God. If you want to boast, boast about every good and perfect gift that has come from above. Boast about God’s unfailing love, mercy, and saving grace.
