Praise God 🙋🏾♀
📜Philippians 2:12 “Dear friends, you always followed My instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.”
✝Step One was to accept the finished work on the Cross; The Resurrected Christ. This is just the beginning. You’ve got to grow; become more and more like Him by the help of the Holy Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
👍🏾Being a Christian simply means being Christlike; demonstrating Christ’s nature.
👉🏾It is therefore our responsibility to read the Word (synonymous with The Son, Jesus Christ) so as to get to know Him; His likes, dislikes, power, desire, etc. God’s waiting for you to seek Him. “and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:26
🤔Is there anything unclear? Go ahead and ask. Do you feel you lost it somewhere? Go ahead and seek. Does the world seem to hand you road blocks, go ahead and knock. “For everyone asking receives; and the one seeking finds; and to the one knocking, it will be opened.” Matthew 7:8
🤝🏾For as much as this walk is your responsibility, fear not, for the Lord is there to guide you through the journey. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them (issues of life), for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
🏆Go ahead, make your Father proud. Just as someone shared Christ with you through words and deeds, begin to consciously live for Christ so that others may also be saved; otherwise there would not have been a need for you to accept the faith in the first place. 🙂
♻ The Lord knows we’re not yet perfect, therefore our current shortcomings should not be an excuse to unfruitfulness. Take everything to the Lord in prayer (Philippians 4:6) and He will perfect it. (Psalm 138:8)
🙏🏾Father, thank You for saving me. I choose to be a responsible child by doing my part, just as You have faithfully done Yours from the beginning of time. Thank You for Your mercies everytime I have missed it, and Your guidance back to the Way Everlasting, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
