VerseD: 2 Timothy 3:12-13

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
2 Timothy 3:12‭-‬13, ESV

We need each other – with the Bible and the Holy Spirit – to encourage each other to hold to the truth of Scripture. Too many today will try to lead us astray and mock us for staying true to God.

VerseD: Galatians 5:14

For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Galatians 5:14, ESV

Loving others includes helping in times of need; sacrificing time, money, energy, and comfort; leading from sin to repentance and Christ; and merely being present and attentive.

VerseD: Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
Ecclesiastes 4:9‭-‬10, ESV

As God’s faithful, we are to help and encourage each other in all things, as He helps and encourages us, especially through Christ.

VerseD: Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works
Hebrews 10:24, ESV

Love God, love people, love the Church.

How?

Grow in godliness as we spur and encourage each other – with Scripture, prayer, and sacrifice – to love on this fallen world.

VerseD: John 15:2

Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
John 15:2, ESV

Those who refuse to change, God removes from His presence.

His faithful, He molds to be more like Christ, and it sometimes hurts but will be worth the eternal joy to come.

VerseD: Genesis 1:27

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27, ESV

God made us, so He absolutely has the right to set the standard, tell us what is best for us, and how we ought to live.

We should listen and obey our Creator and love Him for loving us so much.

VerseD: Galatians 5:24

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Galatians 5:24, ESV

God accepts us for who we are, and then He changes us. We still have our personality, but the things we want and the way we think about things should change.

Let God change your desires. Put them on the cross, and walk with the risen Lord daily.
