Sunday Encouragement

encouragement

If this is your day for rest you still need encouragement. Encouragement is such an easy thing to give, Barnabas in the New Testament was known as an encourager. So encouragement should really be apart of our lives, it is something we enjoy receiving, so it should be something we enjoy giving.

Romans 12 verse 1 and 2  From the Message Bible. “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going to work, and walking around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him.”

Romans is a wonderful book vital to Christian Beliefs. When we come to Christ Jesus we are asking Him to come into our lives.

We virtually move to the passenger seat of our lives and allow Him to take control. The adventure begins, we find the reason we were created to live. We have given ourselves to Him, just as he lay down His life for us on the cross, we now lay down our lives for Him.

God’s mercies transform our lives from one that was dead to him because of sin, to be alive to Him, by accepting His payment on the cross for our sin. {we were born into sin, we were all born into a fallen world.}

We are not going to enter into anything that will destroy, things that the world calls joy. We are entering into an agreement to live the life we were created to live which brings real joy.

We enter into a real peace, a peace in the inner self that only Our Lord and Our Friend can give.

The journey of our lives truly begins and we start a new eternal journey.

We were always {spiritually} going to live for eternity, but eternity without Our Lord and Our Friend is too terrible to think about.

So lets all present our bodies as living sacrifices, which is placing us all in His care, His purpose, His direction for our lives.

That is when we really start living, and worshiping and fellowship with our God.

Be Blessed Today and Everyday..
