There are many scriptures that describe what the life of a Christian should be. We should, Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances… (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) We should, Keep [our] life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have… (Hebrews 13:5). There are countless instructions for how we should live, but we cannot forget the great commission. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)
Our salvation should cause us to do more than read our own Bible more. Of course we should read our Bible more, but knowing the peace and joy of living a life led by our Creator should make us want to do things that will help others find that same peace and joy in the Lord. We should spend more time in the Word, but we must also look for ways to spread the Word. Ephesians 2:10 tells us, For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
As you go about the coming week let’s all use our prayer time to ask the Lord if we are doing His work here on Earth, and what more we can do. Let’s use our meditation to listen for His answers and begin to put those things into practice.
Thank you for reading!
