  • Let your holy life, your pure conversation, and your faithful instructions, be everywhere seen and known. Always, in all societies, in all business, at home and abroad, in prosperity and adversity, let it be seen that you are real Christians… [for] true Christians act to glorify God, and care little what people may think of them, except as by their conduct others may be brought to honor God; yet they should so live that people may see from their conduct what is the proper nature of their religion… seeing in your lives the excellency of religion, and the power and purity of the gospel, they may be won to be Christians also, and give praise and glory to God for His mercy to a lost world.

  • You know when you want to be married in Jesus with somebody it’s good that the both of you not give yourself over to yucky stuff so you can model Jesus and what marriage ought to look like in the church. So you can be an example of covenant and promise in your faith.

  • Taizé Bible reflection: 1 John 4:19

      Brother Emile of Taizé speaks about 1 John 4:19: “We love because He first loved us”.

  • 🕯 Sharing these verses for those who struggle with lust, addiction, temptations, etc. We all do! Sometimes on social media a photo can pop up that you did not want to see, I avert my gaze immediately and block it if possible to do so, and pray and meditate on words of wisdom from God’s powerful, Holy, life-changing word such as:

    Sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it. - Genesis 4:7

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13

    Fight the good fight of the faith. - 1 Timothy 6:12

    So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Corinthians 9:26-27

    Fight the good fight of faith, beloved. It is soooooooooo worth it!!!!!

    The Lord shall be thy confidence.
    - Proverbs 3:26

    Our happiness consists in knowing God and believing Him; if we know His true character, we can believe His precious word; and if we believe His holy word, we enjoy peace and sacred satisfaction. He presents Himself in His word, as able and willing to make us holy, happy, and honourable.

    To Him we may communicate all that troubles us, from Him we may receive all that our circumstances require, with Him we may walk and enjoy peace. We may be confident in God, for He has power, love, and faithfulness; He has spoken to us, will appear for us, and will never turn away from us; but will rejoice over us to do us good, with His whole heart and with His whole soul.

    Let us make Him our confidence, by believing His word, frequenting His throne, and seeking His glory in all things. Are you troubled, fearful, and cast down? Acquaint now thyself with Him and be at peace, thereby shall good come unto thee. They that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

    Thou, Lord, on whom I still depend,
    Wilt keep me faithful to the end:
    I trust Thy truth, and love and power,
    Shall save me to the latest hour;
    And when I lay this body down,
    Bestow a bright immortal crown.

  • The only time you feel valued shouldn’t be when one of the opposite sex is touching your body in one way or another. Your value lies in Christ crucified, not in being physcial or in expressing the desire to be physical.

  • Just like God joins two hearts, wills, characters to be one, He expects us to only be sexually intimate with one person (the one we marry) and never seperate from them or share such with another.

  • “When you understand that you are indeed a living sacrifice, an acceptable fragrant offering before the Lord, you will see yourself as the true worshiper I called you to be.

    Keep on practicing holiness. At every juncture, remind yourself of who you are in Me, for when you humble yourself in this way, it is then and at this point that I will lift you up.

    You strive to accomplish so much in this short life you live, yet you neglect the value I place in you. Rise up from the dust, lift up your head, come into and remain in My presence and worship the Lord your God.

    It is here that you will find, your worship is a demonstration of the position you already have in Me. Simply yield, surrender to the position you freely received, and you will see the goodness I have already established in you”.

    See Rom 12:1

  • We shouldn’t settle for worldly love when Jesus has set the standard for us with better, for better. Know it for yourself. Believe it for yourself. Hold on to it for yourself, with compassion and kindness.

    Read Nehemiah 13

    Nehemiah closes out his memoir by rebuking both false teachers and the folly of spiritual ignorance. This chapter exemplifies the subtle and complex ways that corruption and ignorance can slip into a population to cause chaos. Nehemiah’s hand is firm, but he is motivated by service to God, and sees his leadership over the Jewish people as an opportunity to live out his faith. Scripture teaches us there is a time for confrontation, and it comes out of motivation to God and His truth rather than service to public popularity and the protection of institutions. This final entry in Nehemiah’s memoir shows his philosophy of governance, and we do well to appreciate it.

    This chapter is included in the Holy Scriptures for a reason. We are to be stewards of God’s truth, and not editors of it. There is a time to do things which are unpopular, to tell people truths that they do not want to hear. There is a time to call out the moral corruption which made itself a home in the righteous institutions of God. Idolatry, the act of having anything other than God serve as the moral authority which deems what is and is not permissible as good, always wants to make its way into the holy places of God in order to corrupt them.

  • I am always true to my faith and never hide my heart from God’s face. I believe if we say we love Him, we shouldn’t love worldly things or people more than Him. We shouldn’t hide behind the world because we all will give an account for how we lived, and you can’t live a fruitful life serving sin.

  • When the time is right, God will lead us to the person for us. But, there are no shortcuts to good love. Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of lights in whom there is no shifting of shadow. He doesn’t change with the wind. He is faithful and true today as He has always been. Trusting Him is worth the wait.
