Living in Fear or Faith
How are you? When you are alone or talking with the ones you trust sharing your deepest thoughts, is everything okay? If you are like me, it changes daily. I see news clips, hear empty words from leaders, see anger displayed in the streets and in posts to our "friends." At times I feel great unrest, unsure of what the next day will bring and yet at times great hope and peace. More than ever before I need to reach for God's word, reach up to God in prayer, reach out to others in love. I have to ask myself am I doing my part in this rapidly changing world? Ephesians chapter 4 is packed with powerful guidance for all of us to do our part. Take a moment and click on the link to read it now.
Do you see it? The part you should play. Perhaps it is: live a life worthy of the calling, be humble, gentle, patient, keep unity, focus on the One thing, serve each other, serve the church, be mature in speech and deed. Be angry, but don't sin. Clean up your house, get rid of all malice, instead be kind, compassionate, FORGIVE.
Go back and read it again. God is speaking to us to be His church today, both here and throughout the world.
God bless you,
