1 John 2:9-11

“Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.”

  • Your claim to love God is justified by your true love for others! You are living a lie if your claim is not proven by your heart! Hate not only keeps you angry and vengeful, it keeps you out of the presence of God, causes you to live in unrest and it is ruining your witness! Swallow your pride, increase your love and be a light! Forgive others, be forgiven, and walk in peace! May we see others through your eyes Lord! Amen
  • Is there hate in your life causing you to walk in darkness?
  • Is the hate you are holding onto so strong that you are willing to live in darkness?

Matthew 5:23-24 “So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”

John 1:6-7, 41, 45

John 1:6-7 “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him.” John 1:41 “The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” that is, the Christ.” John 1:45 “Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”” The most important news you can ever share is the news of salvation through Jesus! Who have you told about Jesus? Who will you tell?

Galatians 6:14

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” The cross is all we have, and the cross is all we need.

Galatians 6:9-10

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Who does “everyone” include? Does it not include people who have done you wrong, people who do not believe what you believe, people who ignore you, people of different race, religion, or social status, etc.? Regardless of the outcome, and regardless of the response, we must stand firm in faith while striving to be Christlike to everyone. Often it never crosses our mind because we are focused on ourselves. An outward focus will bring peace, while an inward focus will always bring worry. When is the last time you did something good to someone? Do you look for opportunities to do so? When is the last time you made up your mind that you were going bless someone? Will you choose to focus outwardly on others, or only on your personal needs and desires? Will you look for the opportunity today to do good to “everyone”, or will you make an excuse as to how

Galatians 6:7-8

“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” We are not responsible for other’s actions, however, without exception, we are all responsible for our own actions. Check the topics of your conversation, your words, your attitudes, your relationships, your thoughts, and your actions! Those who walk through life avoiding the “God” discussions, have decided they don’t have the time, or desire, to go to church, never pick up the Bible for guidance, and never look past self-satisfaction or personal comfort, there will be a great awakening one day. We will all give an account to God for how we lived our lives! We will not “get by” with anything, but our sins will either be answered for by Christ, or we will pay the price ourselves eternally. Justification will only come through Jesus Christ.  What is on your agenda today, and at the end of the day, what is your goal? Does your “daily grind” ever focus on God, or is

Galatians 5:22-25

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” A Christian possesses the Holy Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit is evidence of the Holy Spirit in you. In Christ, we should possess each and every thing listed as the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus said that we will be recognized by our fruit. Before we think about how others recognize us, we should recognize for ourselves what fruit we are exhibiting! A lack of any fruit, represents a lack of submission to God, yet God’s desire is that we live our lives with this fruit overflowing from our heart. An imitation will always be discovered, but if we submit our whole heart to God, regardless of our situations, we will be known by our fruit. We should never be satisfied with partially developed fruit, but we should strive to be a light in this dark world, and share the reason for the hope that

Galatians 5:16

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” The more we fill ourselves with God and his righteousness, the less room there is for our fleshly desires and sinfulness! Our victory and peace are not obtained by efforts to keep sin out of our lives, rather it is assured if we invite and welcome the Holy Spirit in! May we submit all we are to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our walk today determines our response to temptation tomorrow!
