Why We Should Serve 

Mark 10 45 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 10:45

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.

 

As followers of Jesus Christ we should follow the example He set for us. Jesus showed us how to help the weak and we must, with humility and love, also do the same.  How wonderful it is to serve God by serving others.

The Right Direction

Isaiah 30 21.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

 

If you are at a crossroad in your life or have an important decision to make and you’re not sure which path to take listen closely to the Holy Spirit, who will guide you onto the right path.  Humbly and earnestly seek guidance through prayer, fasting and studying the Word of God. The Holy Spirit also helps you in your day to day life when you are in tune with His prompting, which are always aligned with scripture.

Earnestly Seek God

Psalm 63 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:1

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

 

If you really want to have a closer relationship with God seek him by faith with a sincere heart and mind.  You must turn from evil, confess your sins and be obedient to his Word. Make spending time with him a priority over everything else. Humble yourself before him and worship him with all of your heart and you will surely find him.

Keep No Sin in Your Heart

Psalm 66 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 66:18

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my voice in prayer.

 

We all fall short of the glory of God.  We are not perfect but what we do when we fail God makes all the difference. Put aside your pride, acknowledge your sin and turn from it. Don’t let sin come between you and God. Don’t let sin destroy your fellowship with Him. Humble yourself before the Lord and confess your sins, ask for forgiveness and He will hear your prayers.

Love Is Not Selfish

Philippians 2 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 2:3

Do nothing from selfish or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.

 

We are living in an age where selfish ambition is the norm.  Our culture teaches us to think of ourselves as the top priority and to put ourselves first in everything we do. But the Bible teaches us to be humble and not to think of ourselves as more important than others.  True love is not selfish, it puts our partners needs and happiness above our own.

Worry or Worship    

philippians 4 6

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

 

Whatever it is that worries you whether it’s spiritual, physical, for yourself or for someone else bring it to God in prayer.  Humbly come before your heavenly Father with a sincere heart and lay your burdens, your worries and your cares at His feet. Thank Him for what He’s done for you in the past, thank Him for hearing your prayer in the present and thank Him in advance for answering your prayer in the future. Come to Him with an honest heart, tell Him how you feel and what you need.  He already knows, but He wants to hear it from you.

Avoid Negativity

1 peter 3 10

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 3:10

Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.

 

Embrace life, be kind, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. Keep your tongue from speaking foul, obscene or unwholesome words. Don’t lie or say hurtful things to anyone. Instead, speak blessings, be a blessing and you will receive a blessing. A forgiven heart is a changed heart, filled with gratitude and love. Avoid negativity by speaking positivity into your life.
