Each day provides a chance to experience our Triune God. But to do so, we must be mindful and available. This is our choice. We usually refer to this as prayer. And, it does not need to be complicated. A simple pause, a well-known verse, an Our Father, and a Centering Prayer period all are forms of prayer that allow us to experience our Triune God.
It’s up to us. God is always available. Will we make ourselves available? Will you make yourself available?
Do others know you are a person of faith from your actions of love? Our very lives must show we are followers of Jesus Christ! Preach the Gospel daily – use words if you must. However, let there be no doubt that you are Christian because you a humble, giving, kind and loving – even to enemies. Let prayer be the basis of all you do today! Do your actions make it clear that the Holy Spirit guides you in Grace? If you do, you will not be perfect, but your actions will make your faith obvious.
Moral truths must guide our actions. We can wish them away due to their inconvenience. At the same time, we must hold fast against the action while loving the person who violates these truths. God loves and forgives all. This is what we must also do. Be firm in our actions while loving others who believe differently.
What does telling the Truth of Jesus Christ mean to you? Is it worth the price of martyrs? Jesus bled and died for our souls. Can we offer our lives to Him? All is His!! The Truth is worth all that is ours to give!! When we lie and turn from Jesus we are betraying our beliefs and our life’s commitment. Joy awaits those who follow the Way of Jesus Christ!
Do you regularly pray? Do habits that are rooted in humility, sacrifice, service, and silent prayer grow and take root in your life? Let Jesus and His Way guide you to peace, hope, joy, and love! Do not delay in creating a life of being open to God’s Presence! Your joy and His Grace awaits you!
We are quick to worry about offending others and wanting their approval. But, do we worry as much about not following God’s Ways? Our Triune God calls us to live lives of faith, hope, and love. This is to be our Way. Let not our fear of the opinion of other people deter us from living our calling from Jesus. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
Your faith is your guide to life. Learn as much as you can so you can grow in Grace. Jesus is our path and our faith is the Way we travel on it. Respect and be open to all people of good will. Grow in your faith so you can be an example of Christ’s Love daily. Then, as you grow, you will hear God’s Will for you daily. Our journey is not over. Walk bravely with humilty.
Let us have the courage to be like Mary Magdalene! She stayed with Jesus during his Crucifixion and was the first to see Him Resurrected! Her love was so deep that through all of the ups and downs of her time with Jesus she never lost faith in Him. We too must walk with the Lord during our life, and its changes, that both stun us and inspire us! Let our faith reflect this brave women Mary!
We must believe what Jesus Christ has told us. The Gospels tell us the words and mission of Jesus. It saves us and we can find comfort in forgiveness and His Grace. Rejoice – we have a forgiving and loving Savior who comes to all! We are so blessed to know of Him and to be able to appeal to Him daily!
Build your life on a solid foundation daily. Through meditation, prayer, and reflection, let Jesus guide your every action. Follow His Ways and find true life! Passing fads will leave you empty while Christ’s Ways are everlasting. Go deep into your faith!
Is your faith powerful? If it is simple, complete, and with passion, it changes the world! Faith changes lives beginning with our own. Look back on your life. What has Abba, Father brought to you? How as Jesus Christ saved you and others? Let it change how you live today! It can – and does!
