Love and Good Works

TODAY’S VERSE
“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.”
Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When you became a Christian, you became a follower of Christ. You became part of a world-wide fellowship of believers. This is more than a fraternity, it is a fellowship. But more than a fellowship, it is a mission. It is part of our DNA. Our mission is to love others and to become involved in doing good. Love and doing good? It sounds too simple and too humanistic. Instead, we want to preach and teach and tell others about the love of God. While this is crucial, we miss the point. God has chosen some to teach, some to preach, but He has chosen us all to love. For how would the preaching and teaching be accepted by the world if it wasn’t backed up with real living proof? And the proof that Christianity is real is in our actions, not our words. So if we want to see others around us come to know Christ, then we must think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me live for you. Help me also think of ways to motivate others around me to join me in performing acts of love and good works.
AMEN

Show Me the Right Path

TODAY’S VERSE
“Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. Remember, O LORD, your compassion and unfailing love.”
Psalms 25:4-6

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life is a journey. We are not settlers in this world. Heaven is our final destination. Instead we are called to go through life as an ambassador of heaven, a soldier in God’s army, a sojourner commanded to give away God’s peace and love. And the journey can get messy. That is why it is so important to learn to navigate, to solve problems and to discern what to do next. David is crying out that God would direct his path. But notice that it is a special kind of leading. He said, “Lead me by your truth and teach me.” Jesus said that truth would set us free. So much of our hardships, misdirection and hurts in this life are due to deception and denial. We need to pray that God would show us the truth and then teach us through each experience. This is how we derive our faith and hope in Him. They are learned behaviors that God imparts as we are led by His Spirit in each situation we find ourselves in. Life is a process. We succeed and make progress by learning. David learned to put his hope in God and trusted that God’s compassion and love would not fail. That is what we need to do. May God lead you by His truth today and point out the road for you to follow. May He teach you more about the depths of His compassion and unfailing love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I need Your guidance today. Show me what road to follow. Guide me by Your truth and teach me to trust You. I put my hope in You and your compassionate unfailing love.
AMEN

Holy Spirit

TODAY’S VERSE
“For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 14:17 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is so easy to get caught up in all the trappings of this life. We live in a very materialistic and mechanistic world. But there is more to life than fame, fortune, and fleshly appetites. We are emotional and spiritual beings and can choose to live by different standards and values than the world. Paul wrote that the Kingdom of God is about “living a life of goodness and peace and joy.” But not just any goodness, peace and joy. No, the source of these emotions is none other than the Holy Spirit. There is a life that God desires us to have and the secret lies in our life in the Spirit. Isn’t time we get to know the Holy Spirit and let Him appropriate these qualities in our life? Today, ask the Holy Spirit to fill you, teach you, guide you and assist you in living all that God desires for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Holy Spirit. You, who is so instrumental in my Christian experience. You, who is so misunderstood and unappreciated. I ask forgiveness for my ignorance and apathy toward You. Instead, I come today to You and ask You to help me live a life of goodness, peace and joy in and through You.
AMEN

Believe and Follow

TODAY’S VERSE
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.”
Psalms 32:8 (NIV)

“The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.”
John 10:3 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus said to those around Him, “believe in God, believe also in me”. But he never intended our belief in Him to be exclusive from following Him. God has promised to instruct us, teaching us the way to go, but we have to go, we have to follow. Jesus used the parable about sheep and their shepherd. The sheep respond to the voice of their shepherd and follow him. Likewise, we can say we believe in Jesus but the real proof is doing what He says. Today, listen to His voice and follow Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for teaching me. I believe in You so please help me do what You say. Give me the courage and strength to follow You.
AMEN
