2 Peter 1: 5-8

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This verse seems pertinent, not just to me but to all Christians. We all are works in progress, and will be until the day we die, but there is nothing wrong with expanding our knowledge of Christ, that we may better glorify Him.

For me personally, this is a verse that reminds me that I must not simply wait for Gods knowledge to come to me, but to actively seek it out, and through it glorify His name and work more and more with each increase in knowledge.

I have felt as though i have had a blessed day today, and I have felt God move through me. I hope to add all of these above things to my faith, that I may become a better Christian as a result.

“Come as you are, but don’t stay as you are”.

Have a blessed day.

God is right

Psalm 33: 4-5

For the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

This is going to be a short one, as I have had an exhausting day, and I need to catch up on some sleep, but I wanted to share this with you, as it is just what I needed to hear.

Sometimes it can be easy to focus far too much on the negative and ignore the positive in any situation. It is through this incorrect focus, in my experience, that doubts start to creep in and the devil gets his claws into you.

And yet, if we just remember the good things, and remember that God is righteous and truthful and that he loves to see those qualities in us, we can beat the devil and show him, and other doubters, the strength, the love and the wisdom of God and the fact that he will forgive anyone who lets Him into their hearts, no matter how grim their past life has been.

After all, He welcomed me back with open arms and forgiveness đŸ™‚

Have a blessed day folks, and remember, the word of the Lord is right!
