LIVE A LIFE WORTHY

LIVE A LIFE WORTHY!!

To live a "worthy" life, does not mean to live so perfectly that we deserve the presence of God. If we could earn our way to heaven, then Christ did not need to die for us. The truth is, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners," according to 1 Timothy 1:15 NKJV. As Ephesians 2:5 shows us, we were sinners when God called us and saved us from the attacks of Satan, from his lies, and his plan of destruction for our lives. Even though, as we live the Christian life, we all will stumble and sin. It’s inevitable. The Word of God tells us that.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 NKJV

You should feel better knowing that God knows we are all sinners, and He still sent his beloved son to die on the cross for our sins. Therefore, live a life worthy of God's call as much as you can! Show how highly you value God's call by conducting yourself in a manner that honors Him. Therefore, set your mind in the heavenward direction with such single-minded devotion that you can say with Paul:

“ …but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV

However, it sounds easier said than done. What should one do to obey God's voice, and His will, His commandments? There are many biblical scriptures that answer this question. However I will give you one of my favorites:

“He (God) must increase, but I (meaning, "You") must decrease.” John 3:30 NKJV

Yes! God must increase His values, His Spirit, and His love in you. You must decrease everything that does not reflect His glory in your life. Therefore, live up to your call. Live lives worthy of God who calls you into his kingdom and glory.

We pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord, and it may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10 NKJV

It can be done!!!!  But only you can do it! Be blessed, but most of all, be highly favored in the name of Jesus.

Activate the Power Within!

As a believer, new or old, you have the remarkable power of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth dwelling within you.  It’s the same spirit that hovered over the face of the waters in the beginning of time when God created the heavens and the earth. It’s the same spirit that “searches the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:10.  The same spirit that “guides you through all truth, according to what He hears from your Heavenly Father.” John 16:13. The Holy Spirit is a “Helper,” John 16:7 and a “Comforter,” John 14:16 & 15:26. Move over, the Holy Spirit is the secondary reason for the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ, John 16:7. And all of this power dwells within you.  Yes, you!!!!

Oh, it gets better, much, much better. Through faith and obedience it gets much better.  Your life, that is! Do you want a better life -- a life full of prosperity, direction and purpose?  Do you want to make better decisions and live a victorious life in the name of Jesus? If so, listen to his voice. The Holy Spirit has things He needs to show you. He’s waiting for you. Ask Him how to overcome the obstacles in your life and give you direction.

Be blessed, but most of all, be highly favored in the name of Jesus.
