Living For Jesus

TODAY’S VERSE

“The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
II Peter 1:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Peter shared how we are to live. He writes, “Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness.” Then he writes that the more we grow in these qualities the more productive and useful we will be in our knowledge of Christ. Have you ever thought of that before? We know that God wants us to serve Him but have you ever considered that He wants you to be productive and useful in your knowledge of Him? He does. God wants you to serve Him and the best way to do that is to know Him better and better. As you do, your personality, behavior and desires will be more like His. His power, knowledge and most of all, His love will be exhibited in your life. Today, choose to know Him more.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me be more productive and useful in my knowledge of You. Help me to supplement my faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness. I ask this in Jesus’ name.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
