‘Tis the Season to be Jolly

James 1 19.jpg

Verse of the Day:  James 1:19

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

‘Tis the season to be jolly. Even though it’s the most wonderful time of the year people are busy, stressed out, in a hurry and not always as polite as they can be. As Christians don’t forget what the season is really about and let’s try to set an example of how to treat others. As we are gift shopping, dealing with crowds, long lines, parking and all the other seemingly stressful activities let’s be patient, kind and slow to anger. Christmas is meant to be joyful and it doesn’t cost anything to be kind.

Be an Overcomer

Romans 12 21

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:21

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

It’s easy to see that the devil is busy stirring up evil all over the world.  That’s why we, as Christians, need to keep vigilant and put on the whole armor of God.  Don’t repay evil for evil, instead love your enemies and pray for them.  Keep doing good deeds and don’t let evil weaken you.  Be strong and courageous in your faith, be an overcomer.

Hope of Eternal Life with God

Revelation 21 4

 

Verse of the Day:  Revelation 21:4

 

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.
