Malachi 2

Mountain21

Here are two verses from Malachi 2 that I felt that I needed to share with you:

Verse 5: We are priests. We have a responsibility to follow God. To be true to His word, to live a life that honours Him.

We are supposed to share our knowledge and love of Christ with everyone.

But how can we do this if our lives don’t reflect Him?

We need to change our attitudes and belief that just being a Christian is enough, we need to live like Christians too!

“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”  1 Peter 2:9

Verse 10: We, as Christians, have something in common. We have the same father, we are family!

If this is true, why do we fight so much? Why is there so little love and grace between us?

Our bond should be far greater than blood, race or gender. Our love for Christ and the fact that He is our father should be an unbreakable glue that binds us together.

Show Him Some RESPECT!

Malachi 1: Here God is angry with the people because they aren’t giving Him the respect that He deserves. They are only serving Him and loving Him half-heartedly.

If someone popular or in a high-powered position asked us to do something, would we be willing and eager to please them?

What about giving gifts? Would we not give our best to them?

Yet how is our hearts and attitudes when serving God? Is it a chore? Even giving of our time is done with moaning and grumbling.

We would give and do so much more for a mere human than we would for our awesome God. I think we often forget just how much he has done for us. We need a real wake-up call.

Lets show God some respect and serve Him with our all, Lets give Him our best.

From Pain to Peace through Prayer

I was reading 1 Samuel 9-18 and was inspired to write this:

Pray when something is causing you pain, stress or fear. Be actively praying. Don’t sit back and hope that it just goes away. Go before God, open your heart you to Him, pour it all out.

Talk with someone. Find a friend, pastor or someone you trust to share your heart with. Sometimes we just need to get it out, to voice our feelings.

Trust God. You can rely on Him. Trust that He will help you overcome, that He will be with you through this time, comforting and guiding you.

When we trust God, we have a peace that can only come from Him.

Remember that God is always ready to talk with you, from your joys to your pains.

Be ready to open your heart to Him.

Be a Light

 

Let Your Light ShineWe can all agree that the world is a dark place right now. You just need to read the headlines, actually, you can just talk to someone and some bad news is bound to come up.

Every day the world is getting darker.

We, as Christians, are lights. We shine for Jesus. We shine because of what He did for us, we reflect God’s love and light.
As the world gets darker, the more our light shines, the more we will stand out in the world.

We will be noticed!

The more we shine; the more people will see that we are different. We will be less and less liked and accepted by the world.
This is scary and will not be easy.

But God calls us to step out, to shine brightly. He calls us to be lights that show people who God is.
Our light must attract the attention of those living in darkness. Our light must show the hope that God’s grace gives.

God promises to be with us, to give us courage to shine in this dark world!

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7

“Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Masterpiece

Don’t try and fix your life, straighten your schedule or solve life’s problems. Just come to God as you are. He will take you with all your faults and create something amazing.

Don’t wait until life is perfect, You will be waiting forever.

Go to God as you are, He is waiting to start working on you. He is the master, Let Him turn you into the masterpiece you were meant to be.

Pride Gets In The Way

I never realise just how proud I was or how pride can get in the way of growth.

Recently, I have been going through a tough time and have had so many unanswered questions. But I was too proud to go talk to someone.

I finally, when reaching breaking point, went to speak to one of the pastors from my church. I can’t begin to tell you how free I feel, so many of my questions have finally been answered. Why didn’t I just ask them when I first had them? Why do we wait so long before we seek help?

It would have saved me so much time that was wasted on doubts and restless nights.

It takes a strong person to humble themselves and ask for help. Put down your pride and pick up a humble spirit.

Being humble is an ongoing fight for me, every day I ask God to break my pride and create humility in me. God is faithful, He never lets my pride pull me away from Him.
