God is Holy

1 Peter 1 15-16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 1:15-16

But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

 

God is holy and He is calling you do be holy in all you do. He wants you to be obedient to His Word and live according to His will in every aspect of your life.  You might think, God is perfect and it is impossible for me to be as holy as God, but try anyway. It is better to shoot at the stars, even though your arrow never reaches them, than to fire it at the goal of a worldly life.

Put Jesus First

Colossians 1 17

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 1:17

He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

Courage to Share Your Story

Acts 4 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 4:13

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

 

You don’t have to be an eloquent speaker to have the courage to tell people about Jesus.  All you need is the willingness to share your own story. Just tell others what God’s love, goodness, grace and mercy has done in your life.

Trust in the Lord

Isaiah 26 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 26:4

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

 

Building trust takes time.  The more you get to know God, the more your trust in Him will grow.  When you truly trust in God you will experience the perfect peace that comes from knowing that God is in control. Worrying doesn’t change a thing.  Instead, focus on getting to know God and let of go of worry and let God have His way in your life.

Choosing Friends

Proverbs 12 26 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 12:26

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

Choose your friends wisely and strive to be a good friend too.
