True religion

True religion does not fit with favouritism or snobbery! James 2: 1My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favouritism. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

True religion cannot exist on faith alone; faith without acts is not enough. James 2: 14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. Be sure that you are recognized for your faith by your actions!

The choice is yours

Life is full of choices! We make choices from the moment we wake up in the morning; what time to get up, to shower or not, what to eat for breakfast, what to do today…..

We take for granted some of these everyday decisions. They’re automatic because we make the same ones every day. Sometimes they’re made for us because they are things we just have to do. There are many other choices we make through the day that are also automatic, but we are in command of them. These choices include; the words we speak, our attitudes, and our actions. We are responsible for the choices we make!

Nothing takes God by surprise

 

God knows exactly what is about to happen in our lives! Nothing takes Him by surprise and nothing causes Him to be worried. God has already been where you are about to go.

1 Kings 17: God said to Elijah, you need to leave here and go and hide at a certain brook and I will look after you. You will have fresh water to drink there, and I’ve ordered the ravens; the birds, to feed you there.

Who is the person God uses?

How can we identify the qualities that God is seeking in the person He takes and uses? 1 Cor. 1: 26-27 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.” God uses ordinary people who make themselves available to Him so that He might do extraordinary things in their lives.
