You will either grow in grace or grown in disgrace. The way you grow in grace is through the Word of God.
Have you noticed how our society has lost its moral compass? There is a direct correlation between that loss and our loss of faith in God.
I don’t have to make you think I am so great. I’m not. God is great. I don’t have to work at making you think I am good. I’m not. God is good. You see it is about Him, not about you and me.
A bitter spirit towards another person will clog our fellowship with the Father.
When we say to little, we can always add to it, but when we say to much, we cannot remove what has been said.
Adversity can be painful, but the Lord uses it to further His purposes and equip us to carry out His plan. Dear friend, what is He trying to teach you in the midst of your trials? Remember the Lord is a faithful companion who uses our troubles to prepare us for His work. Remember also that even Jesus suffered in order to fulfill God’s redemptive purpose. Each time trouble comes your way, focus your attention upon Jesus and His ability to care for you.
A personal relationship implies intimacy and communication. Our intimacy with the Lord is shown in the substance of our prayer life, our involvement in God’s Word, and the fruit that results as we live out our faith.
As we abide in Christ, we will bear fruit and thereby demonstrate our connection with the Savior. May I say, Jesus desires that we abide in Him, His Word, and in His love.
