VerseD: 1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6:12, ESV

Too many people have not counted the cost of discipleship (Luke 14) and therefore misunderstand what the Christian faith truly is.

If we wish to be faithful to our Lord, we must forcefully take hold of the truth of Christ and what it means for our lives, and we must strive to live in light of that truth, not the truth we make for ourselves.

VerseD: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16‭-‬18, ESV

A grateful heart cannot help but rejoice in all things. Look at the disciples in Acts who thanked God for being worthy to suffer because it was for their Lord. This only becomes possible by continuously being in contact with Him.

Do you have a grateful heart?

VerseD: 1 Timothy 4:12

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12, ESV

Young, old, or have a past: do not wait for others to give you a chance.

You live your faith, and live it well in the power of Christ by the Holy Spirit to the glory of the Father.

Amen.

VerseD: John 5:24

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.”
John 5:24 ESV

When John later said “There is no fear in love” (1 John 4:18), he was reminding us that faith in Christ means we no longer need fear punishment and harsh judgment. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus Christ literally saves us.

NEW: VerseD: Philippians 2:13

I am starting something new for my blog, obviously with today being the first day.

It is what I am calling “VerseD”, a verse of the day with a quick thought.

May we all be a little more blessed by having a new thought everyday from God’s Word.

“for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
Philippians 2:13 ESV

We may feel things are out of our control sometimes (or all the time). It may feel God is testing us. In truth, God has a plan, and we are a small part.

Find the peace this can bring.

Remember God is in control.
