“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 14 Do everything in love.”
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 NIV
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”
Romans 12:9-13 NIV
Each day is a new opportunity to live out our faith. To surrender to the Holy Spirit that God has placed in our hearts and strive to live out our purpose. God’s Word has told us to love God, love others and share the Good News. He has given us the example of how He wants us to live in Jesus Christ…in the way that Jesus lived and by what He taught in His ministry. God has prepared everything for us…and He has given us free will to choose how we want to respond…how will you choose to live your life today?
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:1-2 NIV
