Strengthened in the Faith

Colossians 2 6-7

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 2:6-7

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

 

As believers in Christ we must strive for spiritual maturity. We cannot grow without first being tested. If we are rooted in Christ, when trials come our faith will be made stronger when we trust in the Lord and continue to be thankful for His goodness and mercy in all situations.

Your Rights vs. What is Right for You

1 corinthians 10 23

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Honestly, this is a hard lesson to learn for many, including myself. You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian.  Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you.  Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity.

Bearing Fruit

John 15 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  John 15:8

This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

 

Bearing much fruit comes with spiritual maturity and is a result of being obedient to the Word of God. When you devote yourself to God and His will the fruit of the Spirit is evident in your life. And when you aren’t connected to the life giving vine, you stop bearing fruit. Stay connected to God with daily prayer, reading His Word and by surrendering your will for His will.

1 corinthians 10 23

1 Corinthians 10:23

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Honestly, this was a hard lesson for me to learn.  I was stuck on demanding my rights not on what is best for me as a Christian woman.  I finally realized that just because I have the right to do something it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for me.  Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you comes with spiritual maturity.
