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.

You Are the Light

Matthew 5 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:14

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

 

Jesus is the light of the world and you should strive to be Christlike. Your relationship with the Lord is personal but He wants you to shine as a light for the world to see. Your light shines by the way you live your life for Jesus by doing good and being an example of God’s love and mercy to the world.

Enjoy Life

Ecclesiastes 3 12

 

Verse of the Day:  Ecclesiastes 3:12

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.

 

God has given you the gift of life and He wants you to be happy and enjoy it.  Spend time doing things that make you happy with the people you love.  Do good for others and enjoy the blessings of God with a thankful heart.

Seek Peace

Psalm 34 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:14

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

 

Evil is all around us all we have to do is turn on the evening news to see proof of the evil in this world.  To live a peaceful life, the Bible tells us to turn from evil.  This includes evil people, evil places and all things evil.  Instead, do good, according to God’s word.  Actively seek peace in every area of your life through your faith in God.

Rich in Good Deeds

1 Timothy 6 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 6:18

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

 

In this world money comes and money goes. If you want to be truly rich in life you must do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need.  Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord. Visit the sick, feed the hungry, help others to know God. These kinds of things make a real difference. Give, serve, love, these are the kinds of sacrifices that please God.

Love the Unlovable

Luke 6 32.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 6:32

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.

 

It’s easy to love someone who loves you and is good to you.  The challenge then is to love the unlovable and those who have been forgotten by society.  Start seeing them the way God sees them, love them, do good for them and pray for them.

Set the Example

Titus 2 7-8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Titus 2:7-8

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

 

It’s not enough to just deliver the message and teachings, you have to live it too.   It’s easy to say one thing and do another but if you really love God you will strive to set the example for others. Live a life of integrity and uprightness during good times and in difficult times. Let your light shine for others to see so that they may be moved to know, love and serve God.
