Your Skin Goes Everywhere - #6580
Your relationship with Christ isn't just some set of spiritual clothes you put on to do spiritual work, to go to spiritual meetings and then take off. It's skin that you carry with you into every arena of your life. Living for Christ is a style that you carry with you all day, everywhere like skin.
Why Fight When You Can Criticize? - #6573
It's easy to criticize when you're not in the battle yourself, and it's terribly wrong. Players just don't have much time to criticize. Let me suggest to you that there might be two legitimate responses here. One is to take a position. Maybe there is someone better, but at least you're willing to go. Get in there and get involved in this holy battle.
Deliberate Forgetting - #6566
The enemy loves to have you dwell on the past. I'll tell you why. Because it can't be changed. He wants you to think about those past failures because you can't do anything about them. He wants you to think about those past damages because you can't change those, instead of what you can affect, which is this 24-hour period of time and a future that has yet to be written.
Spiritual Body Guards - #6564
Christ's body has been broken enough. He said, "This is My body which was broken for you." Don't allow it to be broken any more by a Christian attacking another Christian. Don't throw any punches at someone that Jesus loves very much.
Only an Instrument - #6557
You're only an instrument, but you don't belong in the case. No, the Master Musician wants to play through your life.
The Tebow in All of Us - #6559
I guess what Tim Tebow's brand of faith shows more than anything is the magnet of having an identity that is anchored to Jesus Christ. No one can look at Tim Tebow, even those who despise his faith, and not think of Jesus. How about me? How about you?
Lit Up From the Inside - #6552
If you're a woman, why not begin a beauty treatment on the inside? Let Christ do a makeover; He's good at those. And let His radiance and His magnetic glow come through you. You'll be a solid gold woman, beautiful, not because you're made up on the outside, but because you're lit up on the inside.
If You Rush It, You Ruin It - #6549
Make it a goal to not find your fingerprints on your future. Only one set of prints - God's. See, your involvement could well become interference. Would you let God finish His masterpiece in His time? For He promises in Ecclesiastes, "He makes everything beautiful in it's time." Impatience can, as young cooks often learn, ruin the final result.
First Snow Faith - #6541
Jesus made this incredible promise. He said, "If you ask anything in prayer, believe that you have received it..." Now, that's past tense. You haven't got it yet, but "believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." I have a Father who loves me and Who only says no if He's working on something that's for my good and better than I have asked for.
You Can't See Them, But They're Holding It Together - #6537
I hope you're in the category of God's unsung heroes. Oh, men may not know your name or the sacrifices you're making. Oh, but be sure God does. You may not feel like your role is important, but believe me like those women who supported Jesus' ministry, you're the foundation...you're the support beams.
