Be joyful ALWAYS; pray continually; give thanks in ALL circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. HOLD ON TO THE GOOD. Avoid every kind of evil.
May God Himself, the God of peace, SANCTIFY you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One who calls you is FAITHFUL, and HE will do it (1 Thessalonians 5:16-24).
There is so much good stuff in here! Paul out did himself. (Smile.) What jumps out in your spirit as you read these verses?
How would our lives change if this was a “life” verse for us?
I think my focus would be different. I think my eyes would be directed more at the prize and the Savior and less on me.
Just something to chew on. Enjoy!
Grace and Peace my friends,
ps. Make this the verse for the day. Copy part or all of it down and your thoughts. What is God saying?
