Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on May 25, 2016

Breakfast of ChampionsDo you sometimes feel convicted when reading the Word of God when He speaks about how we should behave as His children? I know, some of us tend to feel like this is same conversation I’ve had with my children. But when it comes to reading God’s Word, that’s how we start out, as babes in Christ, learning to understand truth all over again according to the Word. It may seem remedial, but those of us who have been through a lot in life with serious challenges and behavioral issues, we need to come back to what is real and truth. And the only way to return to what is real and truth is getting into God’s Word daily, asking for understanding through His eyes. His Word is very clear on how His children are to conduct themselves in the Earth:

“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.  If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”    ROMANS  12:9-21

So if you feel convicted, it’s okay. Now you have an understanding what God expects from His children. He left His Holy Spirit to help us live and love in this way so all we have to do is get into His Word and ask the Holy Spirit to train us under His guidance and authority, and guess what? He will do it without fail because that’s what He does! Get into His Word and find out for yourself!
