Today’s a new day! Remember Jesus was a carpenter; so he can smooth out our rough edges. ~OC
We don’t talk about surrendering to God anymore. We talk about 15 steps to be a better you, 10 steps to your best life and 5 steps to be a better leader. We spend all of our time building up what God called us to crucify. ~OC
Today’s a new day! If I know what God says about me, why would I give up God’s truth about me for the opinion of someone who did not create me, die for me, shower me with grace and call me into a personal eternal relationship? ~OC
Today’s a new day! What’s buried deep down in the well, will come up in the bucket.
Translation: What is buried deep in our hearts, will eventually come out in our words and actions. So do not sleep on anger, grudges, or judgment against anyone. Do not let it take root. Deal with it in the light.
But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day. Ephesians 4:26
Today’s a new day! Find me one person in the Bible who made a real difference, that did not have a strong prayer life. If we want to make a real difference for the Kingdom, we have to be Strong Prayer Warriors. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Here are three promises from our Lord and Savior.
God will always affirm your worth. Matthew 6:26
God will work things out for your good. Romans 8:28
God is faithful even when we’re not. 2 Timothy 2:13
Today’s a new day! It is not about your position. It’s about your purpose. ~OC
As I go from hospital to hospital people are hurting.
As I travel from one meeting to another people are hurting.
As I walk through the grocery store people are hurting.
As I travel to these different places, I am overwhelmed by how many people are eager to hear the word of God. The Living Water. It’s as if the Holy Spirit went before me to prepare their hearts.
My fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, the world is truly hurting. This hurting world needs to hear the message of Love, Grace, Forgiveness and Salvation.
You may get some of these hurting people to church to hear the beautiful message of Jesus, but as disciples of the Living King we need to take this amazing message to where they are and let the Holy Spirit do what He does best.
So my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s hit the streets and speak to whoever He brings our way. The world is hurting. The Harvest is ready. Let’s go! ~OC
Today’s a new day! Stop comparing yourself to something that was never meant to be your standard. ~OC
The Holy Spirit in us should not only encourage us, but It should compel us to be more committed to Jesus and our communities.
Christians who are willing to sacrifice all for Jesus realize community/fellowship is a necessity for all and not a luxury for a few.
We cannot have truly connected communities if we are unwilling to forsake everything for Jesus. Are we ready to make that commitment?
Are we truly willing to reach out to others in time of need? Even when it’s not comfortable. When it forces us out of our neatly constructed lives.
Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to draw us into a place of total surrender to our Savior. A place of surrender, that produces a greater love for Him and a greater need to truly embrace community. To truly serve others. To truly be the Church. ~OC
