God’s Power

Galatians 5 16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:16

So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

 

It doesn’t matter what kind of temptation comes knocking at your door you can only get so far with your own willpower. You may be able to fight temptation yourself for a little while but soon willpower alone will not be enough. Instead of trusting your own willpower, turn to God and trust in his power.  Instead of trying to do it on your own, walk by the Spirit and be victorious.

Living by Faith

galatians 2 20

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.

 

Are you living a life focused on yourself, a life without purpose or peace?  In order to get to where God wants you to be you have to leave your old life and your old ways in the past. Surrender your life to God and focus on the future He has planned for you. Christ now lives in you and you don’t have to live by your own power or strength anymore. Start living by faith in Jesus Christ who loves you so much He died on the cross for you.

God Sent His Son

Galatians 4 4-5

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 4:4-5

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.

 

God had predetermined that He would send His Son, Jesus, to save the world from sin. When that time came He sent Jesus to live among us and to ultimately pay the price for ours sins, bringing redemption to all humanity. Jesus was born and died so that through faith we could receive the gift of adoption into God’s family for all eternity.

Be a God Pleaser

galatians 1 10

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 1:10

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

 

We all fall into the trap of trying to please people, especially the people we love.  But the truth is, the only one we really need to please is God. Don’t be negatively influenced by people who don’t know God, instead be strong in what you believe and why you believe it.   By living a life that is focused on God’s truth and is pleasing to Him we will attract the right people into our lives.

Happy Veterans Day!

Galatians 5 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:13

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

 

To all Veterans who have served our great nation in the United States Armed Forces:  We thank you for your service, honor you and respect you for all you have sacrificed for our freedom.  May God bless you always.

Jesus has set you free now the question is, what are you going to do with your freedom? The Bible says that instead of indulging in the flesh we should serve one another humbly in love.

Your Own Work

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 6:4

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.

 

Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to anyone else. God created you and you are unique.  If you are comparing yourself to someone who is doing better than you, you could fall into the sin of envy.  If you are comparing yourself to someone who is worse off than you, you could fall into the sin of pride.   God wants you to be the best you can be by following Christ’s example.  Live your life according to God’s Word and you will do well.

 

Be There for Each Other

Galatians 6 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 6:2

Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.

 

In life there will be times when you need encouragement and there will be times when you need to encourage others.  There will be times when you go through hardships and need someone to lean on and there will be times when others will need to lean on you.  As brothers and sisters in Christ we need to be there for one another sharing the love of Christ.
