Accept What God Has To Offer

If times are tough, evaluate your willingness to receive. I remember a time when I was moving from working in secular radio, making a lot of money, to Christian radio. I was working at 3 jobs including part-time in Christian radio. During that 1st year, it was necessary for me to put down pride and let God work through people around me just so my family could have enough to eat and maintain the monthly bills. I encourage you to be willing and open to letting Him protect, comfort and bless you in your time of need. Sometime money will come in the mail, food will show up on the front porch, and many other ways that God will use to order your protection. Let go and accept what God has to offer you. (from Al’s journal and thedailyverse.com)

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Psalm 23:4,5

What if You Only Saw Jesus In A Person And Nothing Else

Imagine if we showed up with the kind of attitude Paul displays in this passage. No posturing or concern about being the most wise or the most important – but just living our lives like the only thing we know is Christ and Him crucified. Try it today. (thedailyverse.com)

And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:1,2

Do What You Say – Walk The Walk To Match The Talk

integrityOne of the most damaging ways you can portray Christianity to non-believers and believers alike, is to be a hearer (and a repeater) of the Word but not be a doer of the Word. Make every effort today to let your actions speak the Gospel. Love others well. Treat yourself and others with respect. Love God. Don’t just talk about it, but do it.(thedailyverse.com)

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

Let Faith and Life Collide

Centurion2This centurion was the man about whom Jesus said he had never seen such great faith. Too often we don’t allow our faith and our life to collide on a practical level. Consider if you put practical application into what you know about God, much like the centurion did. Combining Common sense, Confidence in who and your Calling for what God has called you to be, and a trust that He will do what you can’t, goes a long way. (thedailyverse.com)

For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes, and to another, Come, and he comes, and to my servant, Do this, and he does it. Matthew 8:9  Continue reading
