Walk in Love

Ephesians 5:2

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 5:2      

And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.       

Walk in love by following the example of Jesus Christ. He loved us so much He gave all He had so we could be saved. Be imitators of Christ and let everything you do come from a place of love. To walk in love is not just to talk about it, but to actually apply it to our daily life by not letting our circumstances dictate our attitude. We can choose how we respond to situations in life and although we can never love as much as God loves us we can try our best to be patient and selfless. We can be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32) We can also give our time and be of service to others for the glory of God. As we walk through our days in love, may our continued praises and thanksgiving be an offering and a sweet aroma to the Lord.

Learn to Do Right

Isaiah 1:17

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 1:17           

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.         

We each have been given gifts to serve others and to do what is right. Let’s be faithful stewards of God’s grace by using our gifts to do the right thing for others and not just stand idly by. Let’s give our time and volunteer our gifts and abilities to help those in need. Much mercy was shown to you when Jesus gave His life for you, therefore, show mercy to those in need. Right their wrongs, plead their case, defend the oppressed and seek justice for all. Do what you can, when you can, for as many as you can.

Helping God’s People

Hebrews 6 10

Verse of the Day: Hebrews 6:10

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

The Lord blesses those who are a blessing to others.  The love you show to God’s people as He puts it in your heart to help them is evidence of your faith and your love for Him. Whether you give monetarily, provide goods and services, donate your time or give encouragement God sees all that you do. He never forgets the work you do or the love you show by helping His people and when you get to heaven you will surely receive your eternal reward.

 

Helping Others

Acts 20 35 (2)

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:35

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

 

I once read an article about random acts of kindness raising dopamine levels and boosting your mood. Shortly afterwards I happened to read Acts 20:35 and it all made sense.  We feel good when we do good deeds for others because we are blessed when we give unselfishly. Give what you can whether it’s your time, money, goods or encouragement and you will be blessed.
