A self-centered man is a discontented man. But the soul of the generous man, the man who lives for the interests and benefit of others, will find blessing upon blessing in his life. John MacArthur
Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. (1 Timothy 6:6-8 ESV)
Ask for the grace to be a channel of blessing to others
Listen and God will forgive you and blot your sins away; and will give you the power of the Holy Spirit to live a new life. God gives second chances. He is reaching out to you again to give you another chance to repent. It may be too late for you to repent. God will forgive you and restore you again. But if you continue to disobey and live in sin, God’s anger will descend on you like king Manasseh. That could be fatal. Don’t take God’s grace for granted. Rev. Uche Ikpa.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.(1 John 1:9)
What we seem to be losing now cannot be compared to the reward that is prepared for us. What the wicked seem to be enjoying now should not entice us to join their sinful lifestyle.
At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD. (Zephaniah 3:20|KJV)
Are you trying to change your stand because you think you cannot cope with the challenges you are facing now? Don’t do that. Hold on to the end.
If you are willing to believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and if you are willing to accept Him as your savior, then you are invited to pray this prayer with me:
Lord Jesus, I have been a sinner, please forgive me. Thank You for dying on the cross for me and freeing me from sin. Help us to live as You commanded us, “That we love one another as You have loved us.” Please send me the Holy Spirit, and help me live by that Spirit. I’m praying this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen
Giving by faith is meant by God to be an exciting privilege.When you honor and praise God through your commitment and obedience to stewardship, He showers you with joy. He turns your giving into a thrilling adventure in Christian living. Would you like to enjoy such an experience? Bill Bright
