For God’s Purpose

Romans 6 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:13

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

 

If you have been born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. Because you have been set free you can now offer yourself to God, both body and soul, as an instrument of faith, joy, hope, peace and love to be used for His purpose.

Take Care of Your Soul

Verse of the Day:  3 John 1:2

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

 

Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside.  Do things that make you smile and bring you joy.  Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too.  Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward. And remember, the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend alone time with God.

Hope for Today

Romans 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Without hope we feel helpless, alone and powerless.  But our God is the source of all hope.   Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future.  All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His grace and by the power of the Holy Spirit, God has given us the precious gift of hope. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, God Almighty.

Move Forward by Faith

Philippians 3 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 3:13

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.

 

Would haves, could haves and should haves are holding you back.  We all have regrets and have things we wish we would have done differently but if you want to move forward you have to let go of the past.  Don’t let the hurt and pain of the past keep you from the joy God has planned for your future.
