In Christ

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:26-28 NIV

We are need a place to fit in. I remember as a teen I tried out for the basketball team. I went to the tryouts, my mom bought nice basketball shoes and had the want to play. As I went through the tryouts there were so many who were better than i. Well I need make the team and felt like a loser

When you are follower of Christ you are in Christ and that is a great plan.

Hard pressed

When hard pressed, I cried to theLord; he brought me into a spacious place. The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

Psalm 118:5-6 NIV

When the stresses of life get to you run to the Lord. I know in all things I can trust the Lord.

In my life, the stress of ministry has gotten the best of me. Yes, I know that I can trust the Lord in all things. Sometimes I just need a reminder. Maybe today is yours.

So be reminded

Walk in Love

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Ephesians 5:1-2 NIV

Walk in love! Well when I look at this work I find many time the opposite of this ! People have the opportunity to walk in all kinds of things. For example walk in criticism or walk in anger. You can probably think of many other walks.....

But as I read this passage taking me to 1 cor 13. Where is defines what love is. When we know what Iove is then we are more apt to walk in.

Walk in Love today

Check yourself

Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.

Isaiah 1:16-17 NIV

Interesting passage!  Before one can take causes for others we must evaluate ourselves! When you begin to evaluate yourself and ask for forgiveness from the Lord likely that you will become a hypocrite when helping someone else.

Just a thought today!
