Bring It

Devotion requires discipline. Discipline is the bridge between your goals and your outcome. Discipline is doing what you are called to do even when you don’t want to do them. What you ingest is what you digest! What are you taking in? I want to encourage you to go to God’s Word. Take it in and digest it. Consume His Word. What I do daily is who I become permanently! I don’t just want to talk about God’s Word, I want to be devoted to it. Most people stop when they tired, but discipline people stop when they are done! Sometimes I don’t feel like reading my Bible, but I am not done! I am tired but I am not done! What are you devoted to? God bless you!

Walk In Love

1 John 4:16 says, “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” O how we need to let Christ’s life and love fill us, and overflow to others wherever we go. Yes, sometimes that means talking and sharing your faith, but often times it means loving and accepting people. It means enjoying life, because your joy and peace will make people wonder what is it about you that is different. Walk in Christ love today and enjoy life, and the world will stop and take notice. Happy 4th of July! America bless God!

What Kind Of Gift Are You?

John 17:24 Jesus says, “Father, I want them with me-these you have given me-so that they can see my glory.” Christ appreciates us because we are a gift to Him from the Father. Jesus knows that the Father gives only good gifts. Yes, we are imperfect, but Christ sees us in our ultimate completeness. Seeing the end from the beginning, He joyfully receives us. What kind of gift are we? Are we a reward or, perhaps a challenge? No. We are His bride!

Lord, forgive me for the inconsistency of my commitment to You. Grant me power that I might truly abide in You; grant me obedience that I might sustain Your abiding Word in me. With all that I am, I desire unbroken fellowship with You! Shape me and fit perfectly into your presence, that I might dwell in oneness with You. Francis Frangipane
