Word for the day by Christian Education Forum
Journey with the Risen Christ
We as Christians of the new world should push ourselves to be more like God. God loves everyone on this entire planet, no matter how much some may curse him, and no matter what their belief is, we should strive to be like that. We should show love to the people around us and the people we may not like. It is important to also live an upright and righteous life. Paul states that “No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.”
In verses 8-10 we can see that Paul said we were once in darkness but now we are the light. He not only states that we are in darkness but he says that we used to be the darkness itself, but now we are the light in the Lord. We should continue with that light we have gained, and live a life full of blessings by living in goodness, righteousness, and truth.
Lord, Heavenly Father, thank you for the beautiful world you have created and its life and possibilities of it. Lord allow us to live in this world according to your word and your will, Lord helps us to live to be more like you, showing love and care to those around us. Help us throughout the challenges we may face throughout the day, and allow us to have an inheritance in the kingdom of God. Amen.
Thought for the day:
“If you want to be more like Jesus, love the unlovable, forgive the unworthy, and do good to those who can never repay.”
