Here are the verses that I picked out to share with you to go along with my questions this week.....
What did I read the causes me to worship God more?
"Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." John 14:1-3
How very cool is that? I am excited to see what they have prepared for us!
What Scripture touched my heart?
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10
Jesus wants us to have abundant life. He offers it and we receive. It is a wonderful things and I am so very, very grateful!
What can I apply to my life?
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34-35
I still have a lot of work to do at loving my brothers and sisters. I do love them but sometimes I can get irritated or impatient and often just plain selfish and self- interested. I truly want to grow in my love for others. I want people that don't know God to be able to look at Christians and truly see a difference in the way we treat one another.
Interesting (and in this case - sobering) Fact:
"He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day." John 12:48
We need to pay attention to what Jesus taught as we will be judged by that. We are going to all face the judgement someday. Are you ready?
I would love to hear about what you read in the Bible this past week!
