hansedgwick Daily reminder. We live for God not man. We need to obey, love, and fear Him above all else. He needs to be our number 1, our top priority. We must love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We must seek to please Him and not to please humans. We must seek the approval of God above the approval of man. "But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29 ESV) 1w

hansedgwick “If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” (John 15: 10-11) ESV. True and fulfilling joy will only be experienced by obeying Jesus. God designed us so that we will have the most abundant joy when keeping his commands and staying away from sin. His commands warn us of sins that will only steal our joy and lead to restlessness. He designed us and told us how we should live our life because He knows what will make us thrive and grow and what will make us wither because He divinely designed us Himself.

hansedgwick Who are you living for? Are you living for yourself or for God? Do you try and make decisions that will glorify God or that will glorify yourself? How about laying down your selfish desires, worldly values, and sins at the foot of the cross and turning to Jesus. Learn to make everything about pleasing God and doing what He wants and what glorifies and pleases Him instead of what pleases and glorifies you. Learn to be pleased yourself by doing what pleases Him. 2mon

hansedgwick (Part1/3) In honor of my 20th birthday, here's a major throwback photo of me while I was still in my mom's womb. This is a photo of me during the ultrasound/sonogram that determined me to be female. I existed here. I existed at conception. I exist now. Here I had human DNA that made me a human person and I had this unique set of DNA and a genetic makeup all my own from the moment I was conceived. There is no difference between me then and me now. I didn't change. I'm still the same human. There is no biological difference between me at any point then and me now. I'm just older, bigger, more developed, and less dependent. But my humanity is not based on my age, size, level of development (pretty sure a human brain isn’t done developing until we’re 25 or something so still developing now…), or level of dependency (a human infant (which is a stage of development just as fetus or embryo refers to earlier stages of development. The names of the stages don’t negate that someone is human) anyways a human infant would be dependent on some sort of parental figure after birth as well. That doesn’t make them less of a human being, does it?). I existed then, at conception, during this ultrasound, right now, and I was still me then as I am now. Everyone including you, including me, existed at conception. That’s when our lives began. That’s when we came into existence. 2mon

hansedgwick Instead of Christmas being about being grateful for Christ and celebrating his birth it has turned into a way for the world to become more egoistic, materialistic, and greedy. People tend to ask for this huge list of things they want for Christmas and treat this holiday as if that's what it's all about. We forget to see how much we already have and in return we forget to be grateful. Christmas is about a lot more than receiving gifts. In fact what we are celebrating is Jesus's birth and who normally is supposed to get the gifts on a birthday? The person whose birthday we are celebrating. We are supposed to honor Christ and express our gratitude for his existence (of course as a Christian this should happen everyday but if anything Christmas serves as a yearly reminder to do this in the upcoming year if you have been lacking in this regard). I hardly think he would appreciate what the mainstream society has turned this holiday into. Christmas is supposed to be about gratitude not greed which is one of the reasons why I chose to not ask for presents this Christmas. The king of kings was born into this world bringing peace on earth and good will towards men and in his life will eventually make eternal life possible, that is the ultimate gift. And that is what we are supposed to be celebrating on Christmas. 5mon
