Finish Strong

No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
~ 1 Corinthians 9:27

I know times are hard and temptations are strong but we must spiritually discipline ourselves even the more. We must strive to finish this race strong. We must keep the prize of eternal life spent in our heavenly home in sight at all times. Don’t let your living be in vain and miss the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus.

Let’s Be Truthful

Many Christian’s have been conditioned to believe that trials and opposition comes right before God is getting ready to bless. But, may I offer this to you. God will allow trials and opposition to blow our way to get our attention as well. He uses them to correct us, humble us, and to cause us to repent.

The only outcome is forgiveness and restoration. I would rather be forgiving and restored than die and hear, “depart from me you worker of iniquity,” because I refused to admit, it’s me. Our hearts will deceive us but it’s the Word that will decipher our true motives and reveal our sins.

We are not always right nor or we always a victim. We hurt sometimes off of our own disobedience to God. It’s not everybody, it’s you. All suffering is not for Christ sake but it’s because of our own decisions to sin. Sometimes we must mourn over the fact that we disobeyed God and jumped the fence and played with the enemy. Truth hurts but it will set us free.
