Theme of the Week: The Lord Is With You
Bible Verse: “For if you do these things, you will never fall. And you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:10b-11 NIV
Scripture Reading: 2 Peter 1:3-11
Over the past week, we examined who God is – Lord over all, He reigns, forever. Then we looked at how to live a life of purpose, to stay connected to Jesus, and how to make a godly impact.
Let’s wrap up this week with this: The Lord is with you, mighty warrior!
How would you react if an angel appeared and addressed you this way? Would you be encouraged, frightened, doubtful, exhilarated? Would you ignore the angel? Hopefully not! Because what is necessary in today’s world, in a period of what seems like indefinite uncertainty, is your willingness to act.
You are called to make a difference, and it is time for action. Don’t let the emotion of the moment – worry, fear, anxiety, anger – block you from being a difference-maker. Make every effort, (2 Peter 1:5) cultivate your qualities, (2 Peter 1:8) stay connected to Jesus, (John 15:4) make godly impacts for him, and someday “you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:11) That is what a life of purpose accomplishes!
So, what about you, mighty warrior? Are you making an impact for the Lord in your spheres of influence – with your spouse, children, church, workplace, friends, neighborhood, community? What people do you know need to experience the love of Jesus? Are you willing? And when will you get started?
Ready to go?
Remember you have these assurances from the Lord:
- You are blessed. (Numbers 6:24-26)
- I am with you. (Judges 6:12)
- Remain in me, and I will remain in you. (John 15:4)
Go. Make a godly impact for Jesus! Because the Lord is with you.
