Doing Everything with a Good Attitude

Verse of the Week

And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him... Colossians 3:17

This is one of those self explanatory verses.  Also this is one of those verses that may be a verse of the week more then once.  Everything that we do, do it in the name of Jesus.  That means that whatever we do lets do it to the best of our ability and depend on Jesus to fill in what we can't do.  In addition, we also need to give praise to the Father through Jesus.  When I do that I usually thank Jesus for giving me the strength, time, patients, etc. to do whatever it is that I am doing.  I challenge you this week to live this verse.

Pursue Righteousness

Verse of the Week

The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but He loves those who pursue righteousness... Proverbs 15:9

Through this verse God reveals that He loves those who pursue righteousness, but detests (hates) the way of the wicked.  We need to try to pursue righteousness.  Act as though Jesus is standing right next to you no matter what it is that you are doing.  Just because you can't see Jesus doesn't mean that He cant see you and what you are doing.

Jesus is the Ressurection

Verse of the Week

I am the Resurrection and the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?... John 11:25-26

Jesus is asking each and every one of us this question.  Not only must your answer be yes to that question, but you must confess that with your mouth also.  My answer is yes to Jesus' question.  What's yours?

The Straight Gate

Verse of the Week

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in threat: Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth to life, and few there be that find it... Matthew 7:13-14

Jesus is telling us here that we need to find the narrow path.  There are many roads that we can take, but there is one way to life (the narrow way) and that is through Jesus Christ.  We must believe, confess, and make Jesus our Lord and Savior, make Him the Lord of our lives, and repent of our sins.  All other roads lead to destruction.
