Philippians 2:14-15

“Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,”

  • Grumbling and disputing (other versions say arguing and complaining) are a sign of weak faith! Our sovereign God is in complete control of every situation and circumstance we face. When we maintain our joy and seek God when times are rough, others will see the true Light of Jesus in us. Our other option is to just blend in and react like the world without Christ does. It is pretty ironic that we pray for peace in our lives and then exhibit these two traits (which are the opposite of peace) while claiming to have peace because we have Jesus Christ in our lives. Imagine what your witness for Christ would be if you cut out your griping, arguing, and complaining. People have come to expect complaints and gripes but what if we removed them from our lives? Folks would want to know what was up. That would be the open door of testimony and your opportunity to share Christ. Let us glorify God by being a thermostat that sets the temperature, rather than a thermometer that reads it.
  •  How long can you go without arguing or complaining?
  • If you believe Romans 8:28, why would you complain or argue about what God is in total control of and has put before you for your own good?

Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Forgive us Lord for arguing and complaining about circumstances or situations that you have allowed in our lives for our good and your glory. Please give us the strength and desire to joyfully obey your instructions. May you be glorified in all. Amen

Matthew 4:7

“Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”” We have no right to put God to a test. When we understand who God is, and who we are, the only correct response is humility.

Matthew 4:3-4

“And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”” If you say you are seeking God daily, but you are not consistently in His Word, then I challenge that God is not your priority. God’s Word will change your life by guiding every step you take. Get to know His Word and let it guide your every step. The application of His Word to your life will bring peace and joy that you cannot find anywhere else. If you are just feeding your body with food, you are just existing, but if you are feeding your soul with God’s Word, you are living. Make a vow today to truly “live” the rest of your life. We try not to miss many meals, but how often do we skip getting into the Word? Maybe that is why we often feel spiritually malnourished. How much time do you spend meditating on God’s Word, versus thinking about your next meal? Do you need to adjust

Matthew 4:1

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” The Holy Spirit may lead us to a place where we will be tempted, but He will not leave us there alone. Overcoming temptation strengthens us. Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Matthew 3:10

“The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” A Christian, by claim only, is not a Christian. We must live a Jesus proclaiming life. What fruit are you producing in your Christian walk? What in your daily walk sets you apart from those who do not know Christ as their Savior? Do others want what you have because of the joy they see in your life?

Matthew 1:23

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us) All other gifts are not relevant compared to the true Gift of Christmas. Jesus is the only gift we need, and the only essential gift. He is available to all who will receive Him, but no one will benefit from a gift they refuse.

Proverbs 31:30

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” There is nothing more beautiful than a Christlike woman. As a matter of fact, the beauty of everyone is directly proportional to their walk with Christ.
