“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15: 9-11
Our identity is not determined by what others say about us. maybe we have made mistakes, that could make people think badly of us, and sadly in fact, at those times they were right. but God said that if we are in Christ, then we are a new creation, things in the past are gone, so we have new identity! 2 Cor 5:17
We have the seeds of “fruit of the Spirit” within us! 1 Pet 1: 23
and its still waiting to be bloomed in each of us, as we took step of faith day by day!
We don’t have to be ashamed anymore, and this is what it takes to change: believe in God’s words and facing forward!
Have a blessed daily life in Him!
Unless you are faithful in small matters, you wont be faithful in the large ones Luke 16:10
ever thinking why your situations haven’t changed at all. things are all the same, same poverty, still the same problems, needs unfulfilled, empty life?
maybe you still haven’t practiced God’s principle of stewardship.
we all blessed to be a blessings. if we being entrusted of small matters, be that money, family, relationship, whatever they took form, God wants us to be a faithful steward, as a person worthy to be trusted with something.
learn to use your money wisely, not just trying to build your own economy, but learn to think in God’s economy. He will meet your need in abundance (see Matt 6:33; 2 Cor 9:6-9; Phil 4:19)
Be respectful to your parents as God said in Exodus 20:12
“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”
Learn to honor people God has put them around you (Luke 6:31; Mat 7:12)
“Just as you want others to do for you, do the same for them.”
We can always start from the simplest thing, and be vigilant about it. remember, there are no such “very little” thing, that it will go unnoticed by our EVER LIVING GOD. He even knows how to number our hair strands (Matt 10:28-33).
Hopefully this simple picture and verse could speaks a lot for our life, because God has promised if we seek His Kingdom first and its righteousness, all will be added unto our life (see Matthew 6:33).
all of it include: wealth, health, true joy, happiness, peace of mind, spouse, anything! even more than we can think, pray, or hope for!
May our hearts be more passionate about Him first, only do what He intended for us to do even before the foundation of the world, and fulfilled the purpose He created us to be.
