Joyful – Patient – Faithful

Romans 12 12.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:12

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

 

The Christian life is not always easy.  Jesus said we will have troubles but we can have peace because He overcame the world (John 16:33).  Be encouraged in knowing you can be joyful in the hope you have in Christ, patient during troubled times and faithful in your prayer life regardless of what is going on around you.

Meekness is Not Weakness

Matthew 5 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth

 

Many would consider being meek as being weak.  When they hear the word meek they automatically imagine someone who allows people to walk all over them, someone who is subservient.  But the kind of meekness the Bible talks about is different.  It’s being so strong that you are in control of your emotions and actions. Don’t confuse meekness for weakness.  To be meek is to be:  submissive to God, obedient, patient and peaceful.

Humility is Understanding Your Value

Ephesians 4 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 4:2

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 

Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind and gentle to others.  Humility doesn’t mean you’re vulnerable, it’s actually the opposite.  It’s knowing your strengths and your weaknesses while understanding your value. It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.
