Good morning everyone,
I attended a men's conference a couple of years ago in the mountains of California at Forrest Home and I was presented a coin (accountability) to carry in my pocket. That coin has the verse from Colossians 1:10 ('That you may live a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God') on one side and on the other Gradior Dignus (Latin for 'walk worthy') so others may live! A simple reminder of really why we are here on this earth!! Everyday life presents us with decisions, decisions that can bring us closer to God...or not. When we obey God's command, we are blessed. But, when we turn our backs upon the Creator by disobeying Him, we bring needless suffering upon ourselves and our families. Do you seek God's peace and His blessings? Then obey Him. When you are faced with a difficult choice or a powerful temptation, seek God's counsel and trust the counsel He gives. Invite God into your heart and live according to His commandments. When you do, you will be blessed today, tomorrow, and forever. Although God causes all things to work together for good for His children, He still holds us accountable for our behavior. Todays devotional taken from 'Walking with Christ everyday'! May God richly Bless each of you as you make decisions that would be pleasing to Him!!
Your brother in Christ,
