SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY: EPHESIANS-5:1

“Therefore be imitators of God [copy HIm and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]. -Ephesians 5:1 (Amplified)

In all things just do what YOUR heavenly FATHER would do. Now the thing about that is…you have to KNOW HIM in order to know what HE would do in any situation. 🙂

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY-JAMES 5:16

Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. (James 5:16 AMP)

 
 

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY-JOHN 5:24

“I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life.”-John 5:24

 

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY-MATTHEW 5:43-45

“You have heard the law that says, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just as the unjust alike.”

We all know that one of the hardest things to do is to love someone who doesn’t love you back, or to love someone who continually shows acts of hatred toward you. But we must understand that we have been made in the image of God, therefore we are not justified by treating people in anyway except with love. Why? Because it’s exactly how our Father continues to treat us, even though we are constantly showing acts of hatred toward Him through our sins.

So the next time someone has you feeling a certain way (negative) just begin to pray for them. Show love toward them, simply because our Father asked us too, and we know He does it for us even though we do not deserve it.

 

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY-JAMES 5:8

So you also must be patient. Establish your hearts [strengthen and confirm them in the final certainty], for the coming of the Lord is very near. (James 5:8 AMP)
