Do you steal from a king
Who do you put first?
“You are not your own. For you were bought at a price." 1 Corinthians 6:20 (New King James Version)
As Christians Jesus is our king. He bought us with His precious blood.
When we love anything above Jesus, we are allowing that to steal what is rightfully His.
Do you love your career so much that you have no time left to serve Christ? Do you love yourself more than Christ?
So instead of buying the latest fashion clothes do you give to the needy in His honour? Instead of eating out for lunch at work or school, do you brown bag it and give the excess money to charity? How about fasting once a week and the money you would have spent on food give to the food bank or soup kitchen. Instead of sitting at your computer and watching movies do you give your time as a volunteer?
God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Romans 12:6-7 New Living Translation
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) open my eyes to the wonderful gifts You have given me and the opportunities to use them to being the lost to You and to bring You glory. I ask in the name of Your greatest gift, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
