Stepping.

Read James 2:17 (https://bit.ly/3z0AhNt).
Faith without action is dead.
Have you thought about what this looks like in your own life?

Do the steps you take in your day to day look like steps of faith?
When we step out onto a bridge, we trust that it will hold us. We put our faith in that bridge by taking that step. Are we doing the same with God? Or are we holding back, playing it safe because maybe deep down our faith is lacking?

Spend some time in prayer today asking God to help you see if your faith needs action to back it up.

APPLY TO CHANGE

When we read something that stings and convicts us in the Bible, sometimes all we do is take a deep gasp of shock, say “Yoh I felt that” and move on.

That conviction is the Holy Spirit. How can what we read be applied to life, in the small spaces, in the hostile spaces, in the tempting spaces. In addition to this, pray to the Lord to help you live out these portions of scripture, and allow His word to transform your life. Also, it’s always a great idea to share scripture with people in your life.

Unconditional.

Remember the song “Jesus loves the little children”? (https://bit.ly/38phWwP)

What a beautiful picture of Jesus’ love for us; whether we are red, green, yellow, black or white – we are precious in His sight. So why do we sometimes struggle to love people of different skin colours, hair styles, level of education or economic status?

Mark 12:31 (https://bit.ly/2YPpwO8) says that we should love our neighbour as we love ourselves. By loving people, the way that WE want to be loved, we will get to the place where we love and value people the way Jesus loves and values people #unconditionally.

#Actions

My Granny, who could see through walls, would say “Hell is no escape and neither is the toilet” when I used prolonged bathroom visits as an excuse for not doing my chores.

The sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets”. [Excuses-excuses]. “The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth”. (Proverbs 26:13&15 – http://bit.ly/2WzC2xn). Ssssies!

We’re not talking about having a lazy day. This is character defining. Bottom line – laziness not only reflects badly on you but also on Jesus. Our actions portray what we believe to be true.
