Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

“What should I do with my life?” Many of us ask this question. We ask it when things do not make as much sense as during “better” times, or when we are exhausted, or worried.
 
The Bible’s suggests that we have to begin with a bigger, more relevant question. If I am a Christian, if I am committed to follow Jesus and love him, my question should be: ”How do I fit into God’s plans?” And “What are God’s plans for me?”

In the well known parable in Matthew 25: 1 – 13 about the ten maidens, five wise and five foolish Jesus taught,
first of all, that he will return when least expected, for no one knows the day or the hour of his return.
Secondly, he teaches that we must be ready for his return at any time of our days and lives.

Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me”, Jesus said.   “It is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” What good news this is!  Whoever receives one such child in Christ’s Name, receives our Lord.  An important part of whom we are and what we do as the church, is to receive people here in the name of Jesus Christ.

"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God" (Is 40:1). In Is 40: 9 we are told what the comfort is:  You who bring good news to Zion, say to the towns of Judah: “Here is your God!”

We are taught an important principle in James 4: 17: "Remember that knowing what is right to do and then not doing it, is sin”.

The Bible makes dramatic statements about the importance to worship God in fellowship with the Body of Christ. It never is about –  I’ll go if I feel like it...   Or, I will go if I have nothing better to do...

Have you ever thought of tithing as a burden forced on you by God? Let me correct you this morning.  Tithing is the result of a humble and grateful vow to God for anticipated, prayed for, blessings.

The common goal in the Body of Christ is the growth of the body and the growth of its members. As each member grows  it causes the growth of the body as a whole. The Body is responsible for the building up of itself in love as it ministers to each member.
