“Those who love evil may oppose God’s ways, but they cannot escape His wrath.” – Daily Walk Bible KJV
Our Daily bread organization posted this photo about 1 Thessalonians 5:11. Today we unfortunately see more of our friends and family and even strangers tearing us and others down and discouraging others instead of building them up.
We all have our flaws and sins but we are not better than one another. Sure there are things that people can physically do better than someone. But that does not make you better because there is always someone who can do something better than you even if it’s just in one area.
We should always strive to encourage one another and build each other up so we can be saved and share God’s word together. God gave us each gifts some different than others but we are ONE BODY with different functions (gifts) that should be use to share his word, bring Him glory and build one another up. Let’s try for 2018 to stop criticizing others. In love tell them what they are doing wrong as God leads you; but focus on building and encouraging them in the word. We should not be in competition with each other. Let’s not only love with words but in deed and in truth as well. We need unity not division.
Again this photo belongs to our daily bread
“The faintest whisper of encouragement uttered to a Christian brother or sister is heard in heaven.”- Daily Walk Bible KJV
To my brother and sister in Christ no matter what storm you are facing you are not a lone! Whatever is going on in yiur life right now it won’t last forever even though it may seem like it will. God said he will never leave or forsake us. He is there with you even if it’s hard for you to feel his presence.
Remember “No weapon that is formed against the shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me saith the Lord.” – Isaiah 54:17 KJV
So pray without ceasing and call on other believers to bear some of your burden and ask them to pray for you. We are told to bear one another’s burdens in Galatians 6:2 So call on that believer that you can trust and most importantly Jesus burden is light so definitely give it to him and HAVE FAITH.
“If your behavior does not reflect your beliefs, how valuable are those beliefs?”- Daily Walk Bible KJV
Are you bearing good or bad fruit? Your behaviors shows what type of fruit you are bearing. You can say you follow the Lord but if your behavior (fruit) is not matching up then you need to examine yourself.
What do you truly believe? Remember you are witness to others by your words and behavior. There is always someone watching it could be a new believer or someone who wants to believe. So Make sure your behavior reflects your beliefs so you do not cause someone to stumble or turn away from God and also so you can bear good fruit always
