Dailies ~2019

If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.  But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness.  For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.  For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach.
 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the elder-ship. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
1 Timothy 4:6-16
I just could not cut it down any further!  We know that we are not going to live an easy life when we accept the call of God on our lives. We know that it will be hard to get people to see the reason we believe at times. But what we do not think about is that we are called with His purpose in mind and it doesn’t matter what other people tell us because it is the call of God not man.
We will always find people who do not think what we have been called to is good, or right; but it is the call of God not man. Speak the truth according to the Word of God and you will be able to walk out your calling.
Heavenly Father. Thank you for giving us such great direction in Your Word. Help us to stand strong knowing You are the one who called us. In Jesus’ name amen.
