Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
More and More….
1 Thessalonians 4:1-12, Paul wrote
“brothers (and sisters 😊) we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living.
Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.
For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. (wow…Paul reminds us that what he has to say to us came from, is totally inspired by, what he received direct from Jesus…point being….this is direct from the top…this is not optional information…this is the best what-and-how-to live to please God information we can get).
It is God’s will that you should be sanctified.; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; and that in this same matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you.
For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.
Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.
Now…about brotherly love we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. And in fact, you do love all the brothers throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers, to do so more and more.
Make it you ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”
Lord…help us to love your words, will, and way, more and more. I thank you that you gave us your Spirit to live inside us and give us that continual help and strength to seek your will and ways more and more. So I pray according to what you say in your words through Paul…help us to seek a mindset of urgency to live a life that pleases You..more and more. We know we can only do this through your grace, power, and strength…and in Your name. Amen
