1 John 3: 18, 19: “My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.” We can be assured of the presence of eternal life within us when we demonstrate self-sacrificial love to others. Believers who begin to truly love will know their behavior has its source in the truth and therefore benefits the giver and the receiver both.

Psalm 145: 17, 18 – “The LORD is righteous in all His ways, gracious in all His Works. The LORD is near to all who call upon Him; to all who call upon Him in truth.” The pairing of righteous and gracious is a powerful demonstration of the character of God. His righteousness leads to His discriminating judgment; His grace leads to His saving works and forgiving actions. God both preserves and destroys based on His insight into human intent and purposes.

2 Timothy 3:16: ” All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God was actively involved in the revelation of His truth to the apostles and prophets, who wrote it down. The Author of the Bible is God Himself. Thus Scripture is true in all that it affirms.

A positive scripture to get our weekend started.
Psalm 66: 1-4: “Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name; make His praise glorious. Say to God, ‘how awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You. All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; they shall sing praises to Your name.”‘ The Lord is pleased with music that praises His name.The Lord’s name describes His character, so honoring God’s name is honoring God Himself. Enjoy your weekend all our friends!

We all know the worldly saying of “follow your heart”. Well, listen to what the Creator has to say about “the heart” in Jeremiah 17: 9, 10 – “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” No explanation needed here……….

When Jesus began His ministry in Galilee he healed many people and saved many souls. That next morning Jesus had gotten up early to go to a solitary place to pray when His disciples approached Him in Mark 1: 37,38: “When they found Him, they said to Him, ‘Everyone is looking for You.’ But He said to them, ‘Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach these also, because for this purpose I have come forth.'” Jesus’ fame spread quickly and the disciples’ concern is evident. Refusing a comfortable existence, Jesus took seriously his mission to reach the next towns. He came to preach and to proclaim God’s message. Christ modeled singleness of purpose, He would not let anything distract Him.

2 Timothy 2:22, 23: “Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.” By adhering to this Godly advice above, we all can be a useful vessel for God’s work.
