I find too many believers are struggling with personal issues taking away the joy of their salvation. And then there are the many believers who have conflicts with others in the church. We may have forgotten what the Apostle Paul said to the Ephesians: “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you”.
To share our faith, all we need is a willingness to tell other people about what we have discovered and how God has worked His will in our lives.
Encourage those you see living for Jesus. But mostly let those without Jesus see Him living in you and me. Let us love and serve those we meet no matter what their circumstances. May we be more like Jesus.
It’s sad, how too many believers feel they are “gifted” to be a critic rather than an encourager. We all need to do a better job of leading in love to preserve harmony and relationship.
No matter how old we are, God has plans for us. In Ps. 92:14 we read, “Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green.” Aging will be a joy when we let God walk with us.
When life deals us a lousy hand, and important relationships seem without hope, we need to reflect upon some of God’s promises and encouragement. As mentors, we have a host of fulfilled promises and events from God’s Word what can help encourage someone needing help.
Jesus didn’t tell us to go make a church; He told us to go make disciples. We should not be focused upon building big churches, but should focus our efforts upon building spiritually deep disciples.
Many people love to re-purpose things, because “you never know when you might need it.” This can be said about people with a new purpose in their lives, as they are taught and trained by our Lord.
