Sunday Words of Encouragement January 11, 2015

We are wrapping up the study in Revelations which has been wonderfully exciting. It is fascinating too that, as we are reading the Bible from the beginning again, we see passages in Genesis, Matthew and Psalms that tie into Revelations. The redemption theme of Christ runs through the Bible from beginning to end shared in 66 books, by 40 authors and over 1600 years. I always see this as awesome - God inspired!

Our pastor preached a sermon titled: Living Worthy of the Lord. The question he said to ask ourselves is: “Am I living, walking, worthy or the Lord? Colossians 1:10 states: “so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;”. (ASB)

No one likes a traitor but many Christians behave in a traitorour way, not living their lives to please God. If you love God, then you will live a life that shows that love; bearing good gruit and seeking more knowledge of God. Being worthy will show these three traits:
1) Being loyal, bringing Him glory through our daily walk;
2) Doing good works that will glorify Him (bearing good fruit); and
3) Growing in knowledge of God.

The family of Christians should be standing firm, in one spirit, striving together for faith of the gospel. Philippians 1:27. Don’t allow your daily life, home or work, or church differences, to distract or turn you from the path that God has put before you. He keeps working on us, in us and through us, if we let Him.

I searched for two hours for the song to share today.
I found many good songs but this is the one that fits for me today! :-)
Everything (Tim Hughes)
Verses for Today:
Philippians 1:27-28a (NIV)
27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit,e striving together as one for the faith of the gospel 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you...

Lord, today I bring prayers for healing for many sick with flu bugs, but particularly for special healing after surgery for friends, Meghan and Lanet.
Also Lord, show me each morning how I can walk that day to be pleasing to You.
