Think Spot – 8th August 2016
G’day! Welcome to Partakers Think Spot at the start of new week on Monday the 8th August 2016!
Be Obedient! Be bold! Be strong! Be courageous!
Jesus said in John 14:21 “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
You will face pressure to disobey Him, even sometimes from those within your church. But if He has commanded you to do something for Him, you are to obey Him. It is far better to obey God and disappoint people than to obey people and disobey God.
Go into this week, lovingly willing to be obedient to God! Trust in Him and ask Him for the strength to be lovingly obedient to Him. He will help as you ask! It can sometimes be very difficult to be obedient to God, particularly as some people, even other Christians, will try to get you to disobey. Be strong in the Lord! Be bold! Be courageous! Need help? Then ask somebody to pray with you! Then be prepared for opportunities to be lovingly obedient to Jesus – in small and big things!
A Prayer to help you this week.
May the Holy Spirit encourage us
as we seek to live worthily of Jesus Christ,
in obedience to Him.
Father, it is in His name we pray
in the power of the Holy Spirit.
