Keep running the race (Hebrews 12:1). We are not of those who fall back into perdition (Hebrews 10:39). We are overcomers (1 John 4:4). We have our orders from our Great Commander. We are to love God, each other and our enemies (Matthew 22:36-39 & 5:44). Then we are to go out and show theContinue reading “Marching On”

While hanging on the cross, Jesus cried, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do!” (Luke 23:34) May His mind be in us, (Philippians 2:5), that we could and would forgive those who have wronged us. Also Lord, I pray, that we would do it immediately, without them even having to say they are sorry. Jesus didn’t wait for an apology and neither should we, who are in Christ.
Jesus did not pray for us to have our will be done, rather He prayed for the Father’s will to be done. (Matthew 6:10) As true Christ followers we need to be studying His word to see what we are to do, say and also how we are to act. God will show us. The answer is in His word.
The word of God says that we need to conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Why is that important? Because others are looking at our lives. What are they looking in at? Will they see us acting the way that the Bible says for us to act? In everything we do or say, we are to bring honor to His name. That is our calling.
