Doing Good

Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good. Rom. 12:21

There is evil in the world. It is dangerous and naive to think otherwise. We must not let it overcome us by ignoring it or by responding with evil. The temptation is to react to evil with evil, but that gets us nowhere. We conquer evil only by doing good, by doing what is right. That is God’s way to defeat evil.

Are You Ready?

Jesus said, “I will come again” John 14:3

We have all heard this. Jesus is coming again. However, we always seem to get bogged down in the details, timing, and “last days hysteria”. Do not let all that obscure the plain fact that Jesus promised that He would come again. It is going to happen someday. It could be tomorrow or a hundred years from now, but He is coming again. Knowing that, there is one simple question-Are you ready?

Pass it Along

Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. Heb. 13:7

We’ve all had people who have invested in us. It may be a Sunday school teacher, a grandparent, a school teacher, or a pastor. Whoever it was, we need to remember them and their lives. They were godly examples for us to follow. The same Jesus who loved you through them can love through you. Pass along the blessing that you received from others.

Be Still

Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

That is what God is whispering in our ears. Our lives can be so full of turmoil, distress, and uncertainty that we are at our wits end. We need to just get alone, get quiet, and know that He is God. He is not shaken by circumstances. He is not alarmed. We need to still our hearts in His presence and let His peace become our peace.
