Many people believe in Jesus of Nazareth and believe He is the Messiah but do not serve Him as Lord. But believing & confessing Jesus is Lord is different. It is a positional decision which defines our relationship to Him. When we make Jesus Lord of our lives, it’s transformational. It’s deciding whose authority rules over our lives. We belong to Him. With his shed blood, he purchased us out of the kingdom of darkness into His kingdom. It is the most important decision we will ever make.

The Bible is has many passages about the characteristics of love. But it also tells us exactly what love is:

“This is love: Not that we have loved God, but that He loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. “ 1John 4:10

For many of us “busy season” is upon us-& it can be brutal. While good intentions may precede it’s inception-rightly prioritizing is difficult & the hrs/expectations w/the desire for success/recognition can be consuming. Asking God for help, wisdom & courage to honor Him can yield amazing results.I’ve kept this post in my office for over 10 yrs at work & made many copies for people who requested-It’s based on Luke 12:15 -“One’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses. “

We don’t often think of our attitude as something Christ cares about. Yet in Philippians 2:5 he tells us our attitude should be the same as Christ Jesus.
Whatever our attitude is-whether happy&positive or grumpy &mad-we chose It.Our attitude doesn’t reflect our circumstances,it reflects our choices about our circumstances.Christ had every reason to be resentful, even angry,but he wasn’t.I know at times I need supernatural help from God with my attitude! I love Rev. Swindoll’s quote on attitude:

I pray that each of us experience a deeper understanding each day of just how magnificent and incredible Christ’s love for us is. The Creator of Heaven and Earth- Our Mighty God and our King of Kings, condescended to earth, was born as a baby to a virgin- in a lowly stable- to serve as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. And so that those who believe in Him may have eternal life. There is no greater love my friends!

Our profession is full of highly productive people. Great - right? Unless our productivity is focused on our life’s purposes & goals & we realize we have neglected the most important thing. Our relationship with God. The Bible says when the midnight cry comes & we are called home to be with the Lord -
everything we have & everything we’ve done will be left behind. Jim Elliott - the missionary once said - the most profitable use of our life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.

All of us have felt as if we don’t measure up at one time or another. Even as Christians we usually apply worldly measurements to determine our value & not God’s. This is an easy way for the enemy to deceive us. Our self worth does not come from the world - it comes from God. The Bible tells us that we are children of the Most High God -heirs of God & co-heirs with Christ. The is the result of Gods amazing love and grace. Our eternal inheritance can never spoil or perish when we are His!

Today Christians around the globe face intense persecution. While those of us in the U.S. & other countries aren’t banned from worshipping Christ- there is little tolerance by some in society. The Bible tells us to be strong in the Lord- yet we often fail to stand for Godly principles for fear of being canceled or persecuted in some form.1 Peter 3 gives us a timely example of how to handle persecution & reminds us that it‘s far better to suffer for doing good than suffer for doing what’s wrong.

Throughout the Bible we read about the power of our words. In Proverbs we’re told the tongue has the power of life & death & those who hold their tongue keep themselves from calamity. Gods word tells us the words of the reckless pierce like swords but the tongue of the wise brings healing.We’ve all,on occasion, said something we regret. I sure have. In Psalm 19 vs 14 David gives us one of my favorite verses-one we can pray to help us guard our tongue & keep our thoughts pleasing to our Lord.

Many of us have sinful pasts- full of shame & guilt. But God has set us free from sin, guilt & shame & given those who believe in Jesus & walk in His spirit, a new identity thru faith in Him. Paul reminds us in Romans 8 that there is no longer condemnation by God but instead justification for those who are in Christ. He tells us that once God has redeemed someone & called them righteous, no one can accuse or condemn them. We can be confident in our secure & eternal position in Christ.

As Christians most of us have had times in our lives that we haven’t felt close to God. When I looked back on these times in my own life I realized it wasn’t God who moved away-it was me. It usually happened when I was really busy or simply became complacent. Thankfully God knows our carnal struggles & loves us regardless. Paul reminds believers in Romans 8 to never doubt Christ’s love for those who are His because nothing in this present age or the future can separate from His amazing love.

Throughout the Bible the Christian life is compared to running a race. In Hebrews12 we’re told to throw off anything that hinders &the sin that entangles &run the race set out with perseverance. In Philippians Paul tells us we must forget what’s past &press on toward the prize. Again, we’re told to leave unnecessary baggage behind & persevere-despite the obstacles. As Christ followers we must not give up- God will help us grab hold of the prize he’s secured for us thru our savior Jesus Christ!
