Today's Scripture *December 2, 2009*
- Today's Scripture *December 2, 2009*Philippians 4:1Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stay true to the Lord. I love you and long to see you, dear friends, for you are my joy and the crown I receive for my work.How do we "stay true to the Lord" ? This refers to what Paul just taught in Philippians 3: 20-21 -- But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.The way to stay true is to keep our eyes on Christ, to remember that this world is not our home, and to focus on the fact that Christ will bring everything under His control. Staying true means steadfastly resisting the negative influences of temptation, false teaching, or persecution. It requires perseverance when we are challenged or opposed. Don't lose heart or give up. God promises to give us strength of character. With the Holy Spirit's help and with the help of fellow believers, you can stay true to the Lord.Lord, we long to stay true to You!Build us and give us godly character. Remind us Lord that our eternal home is with You!This world will soon pass away! But You, O Sovereign Lord, will last forever!Thank You for the precious gift of Your Son! And that we now may live eternally with You in Your Kingdom.In Jesus' Name, Amen..God bless!April Please do not remove when forwarding
