Thankful Thursday - Refreshed

Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Sin is a lot like a match. 

When we participate in sin it’s like striking a match!

Once it is lit in your life it starts a fire that spreads and destroys everything.  Just that little tiny spark can be more destructive than you think. 

God is like a firefighter.  He comes in and cleans up the damage the fire caused.  But unlike any firefighter we know, this firefighter miraculously rebuilds and restores what was lost during the fire and makes everything new and whole again! 

Now that’s POWER!!  That’s OUR GOD!!

This Thankful Thursday I’m so thankful that we serve a God that rebuilds us and restores us after we sin.  Sometimes we can mess up so bad and wonder where do I go from here?  He repairs our heart from the pain and renews our souls from the damage.  Praise the Lord for His mighty and powerful miraculous touch!!

Laced with Grace….Get Moving

Today I shared a devotion over at the Laced with Grace entitled “Get Moving”.

Hospitals are for the sick to come and get well.  Once they are well, they leave.  Wouldn’t it be so silly once you got well, if you just stayed there?  It’s not a resort; it’s place to help the sick get well. 

I think churches are a lot like hospitals for the lost.  Churches are established all over the world so the sick (lost) can come and get well (saved).  For those that are not well, can come and learn the life changing truth of Jesus Christ and no longer be lost, but found!!

Churches aren’t for the ones that know the truth, to go and sit on the pews for the rest of their lives.  That’s not our calling.  That’s not the instructions the Bible gives us.  If you know the truth you have a responsibility to take your place in the body of Christ and make a difference in the kingdom of God.  In Mark 16:15 you will find specific instructions from Christ telling us what He wants us to do with this life changing truth.
