Happy Sunday Friends! We’re down in rain saturated Florida, spending time with our kids Grandparents on National Grandparents Day! I hope this message finds you with peace and good health. Watch some church today! My family and I are two weeks from returning to in-person church services and we CAN NOT wait! On the image below, I’m sharing a “re-imagined” single released this week by Passion. It’s a great new spin on one of their strongest tracks from last year. Enjoy!
12See to it brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. (Hebrews 3:12-14)
Here is another set of verses aimed at reminding us the power of positive social connections. “Encourage one another daily.” Why do we speak words of conviction and judgment? Everything that comes out of our mouths should be positive talk. There’s so much evil in this world, at least from us brave few, let’s commit ourselves to nothing but positive words, positive thoughts. Let us not be hardened by the devil’s deceitful ways. Life’s a battle, keeping each other motivated through all the defeats as well as the victories is no easy task, but just remember you have the Creator of the entire universe in your corner and His Son who loves you more than you could ever hope or imagine. So make an effort today to reach out to your brothers and sisters in Christ and give them an encouraging word. And then hold that conviction firmly, to the very end.
Reading plan: Hebrews 3:7-19
Deeper reading plan: Ezekiel 25, 26
Prayer and meditation: Pray for our country. Pray for love to conquer all. Pray for God’s wings of protection to cover all the children returning to school. Pray that Christ infects our hearts and ignites a final fire of revival to sweep this land.
Fitness challenge: Rest
Worship: Spend today in prayer and worship. Get to church or get to a computer and watch church. America needs a revival like never before.
