Day 5 of our Countdown

Colossians Chapter 3 Verses 12-17

Since God chose you to be the holy people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you.  Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.  And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.   For as members of one body you are called to live in peace.  And always be thankful.

Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.  Teach and counsel each other with all wisdom He gives.  Sing psalms and hymns and  spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.  And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

Grace, Peace, Blessing

Ephesians Chapter 1 Verses 2 – 4     Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him.     (NASB)   

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

Anxious?

Philippians Chapter 4 Verse 6 and 7    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.    (NASB)

There is a lot of turmoil in the world today which makes it really easy to become anxious.    Today’s verse reminds us that as Christians, we can have complete peace, just by trusting in GOD.   Instead of getting worried and stressed today over the cares of this world, take some time to pray and talk to your heavenly father.   He will replace that anxiety with the peace of GOD.

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

PEACE IN A FOXHOLE

Isaiah Chapter 26 Verse 3     You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

Proverbs Chapter 22 Verse 6    Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Romans Chapter 10 Verse 13    For “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.”

The other day on the radio I heard a story of a veteran who was in the midst of a fierce battle.  Danger and death loomed all around him and a paralyzing fear gripped his heart.   But then all his Christian upbringing came before him, and he called on the name of the LORD.   He said, “Dear Jesus, if I am going to die, please take me to be with You.”    Amidst the calamity all around him, a peace (a peace that the world cannot give) filled his heart and his mind.

That day his soul was saved, and he lived to tell about it!   The Word of the LORD is “Yes and Amen!”

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

VENGEANCE IS MINE

Romans Chapter 12 Verses 17-21     Never pay back evil for evil to anyone.  Respect what is right in the sight of all men.  If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.  Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave for for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord.   “BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK, FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD.”  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.     (NASB)    

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

No Bitter Root

Hebrews Chapter 12 Verses 14- 15    Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.   See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.    (NIV)

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary
