1 Corinthians 11:1
God almighty, help us to listen & cooperate with Your Spirit at work in us.
1 Peter 1:2
The people chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father through the sanctifying action of the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus, the Messiah, and to be sprinkled with His blood. May grace and peace be yours in abundance!
Deuteronomy 11:2, 8
Remember today the discipline you learned from the Lord your God. (I’m not talking to your children. They didn’t see or experience any of this.) You saw and experienced His great power—His mighty hand and powerful arm. Obey all the commands I’m giving you today. Then you will have the strength to enter and take possession of the land once you’ve crossed the Jordan River.
And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.
2 Peter 1:5-7
This is why you must make every effort to add moral excellence to your faith; and to moral excellence, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, endurance; and to endurance, godliness; and to godliness, affection for others; and to affection for others, love.
The Christian life is a process in which we learn complete dependence on God. #OurDailyBread
By this time you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet here I find you need someone to sit down with you and go over the basics on God again, starting from square one—baby’s milk, when you should have been on solid food long ago! Milk is for beginners, inexperienced in God’s ways; solid food is for the mature, who have some practice in telling right from wrong.
