philanthropyathens Jesus made it simple but not easy. How can we love those around us more deeply? God tells us:
'Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.' I Corinthians 13:4-8
Happy Valentine's Day.....let's do love His way!

chytlee 'When you stay focused on your purpose, not your problem, you can be happy even when life seems to be falling apart.

Paul was an old man when he was in prison in Rome. He was a long way from home. He was awaiting execution. Everything has been taken from him — his friends, his freedom, his ministry, even his privacy, with a guard chained to him 24 hours a day. It wasn’t exactly a happy time for Paul.

But there was one thing they could not take away from Paul: his purpose. Paul made the choice to stay focused on his purpose, even when he had lost everything else. What was his purpose? Serving God by serving others.

Paul says in Philippians 1:22-25, “If by continuing to live I can do more worthwhile work, then I am not sure which I should choose. I am pulled in two directions. I want very much to leave this life and be with Christ, which is a far better thing; but for your sake it is much more important that I remain alive. I am sure of this, and so I know that I will stay. I will stay on with you all, to add to your progress and your joy in the faith” (TEV). I’ll never forget reading Viktor Frankl’s book “Man’s Search for Meaning.” Frankl was a Jewish psychiatrist who was taken to one of the death camps in Nazi Germany. All of his family and all of his friends were gassed and murdered. He talks in his book about one day when he stood in front of the Gestapo stark naked. They’d taken away the prisoners’ clothes and even Frankl’s wedding ring. He stood there with nothing at all when he suddenly realized there was one thing the Nazis could not take away from him: his choice in how he would respond.

You cannot control what other people do to you. You cannot control what other people do around you. But you can control how you respond.' #DailyDevotional #PowerPrayer #pushingthefaith #faith #prayers #peace #devotion #Agape #God #Godisgood #GodWins #God #passion #compassion #RickWarren #godscreation #potd #pic #photo #iphonephotography #photography #iphone #shot #igdaily #instapic #foggy #road

cappinmike Hope your Saturday is going well! Today we read 1 Corinthians chapter 2. What did you think? The first two chapters of this book talk about how the true Jesus and wonders of God is not something that can be understood logically. In chapter 2, Paul even quotes Isaiah 64 when he says, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”. We are not sent to convince anyone of anything, lest we should boast. We are called to spread the message of Christ crucified. As Paul says in verses 4-5, "... my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God". What did you like from this chapter? Let's talk about it! 3h

rescued_church How many know the world will come at you with all it has it will puff up its chest yell and scream to get you to fear and see the giant as something that is undefeated something that is so big it can't be stopped. This is what the giant goliath did to David he stood up and tried to intimidate David and naturally the normal thing too do would bee to run away as fast as you can away yet David did the opposite. He tells goliath you come to me with javilin and spear (he tells the world you come to me with hopelessness doubt fear debt frustration loneliness worry) yet David continues and says but i come to you in the name of the Lord. You see David knew he couldn't do it alone it would only be by the strength of God that the giant could be defeated. Today know i can't do it on my own nor can you it's when we realize this and say God i need you that the battle will be won for the battle belongs to the Lord. Today as your giant looks you in the face you speak to that giant and say i come to you in the name of the Lord it's only with God that the battle will be won. #herescuedme #rescued_church #salvation #dailydevotion #dailydevotional #dailygrowth #Jesus #wordofGod #bible #blessed #power #mightyGod #callouttoGod #christian #bealight #refuge #strength #forgive #God #forgiven #thankyouLord #thankful #truth #devotional #devotion 4h

revelationwellness Fear has no hold on you because the Lord is your stronghold. Cling tightly to your God, and watch fear fall apart at the seams. _______________________________________________"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident." -Psalm 27:1-3

itskhamm Smile regardless of the circumstances ! Give To Anyone
Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don't try to get them back. (NLT) ( Luke 6:30 )
Giving can be easy especially when we choose to give. But how easy is it to give when it is not our choice because it was taken from us? That is tough! What's worse is when we give against our will, we feel like someone owes us. Sometimes we even go ahead and take revenge into our own hands to make it fair again such as pointing out someone who has just cut in line. Just remember, check your heart, there is a difference between justice and revenge. #itskhamm #khamment #dailydevotional #applyhisword #godgotyou #staypositive #evenifitshard #watchhimwork

dcketcham God's timing is perfect. One of today's devotionals gives me this; right where I need it. To read it; pray over it and hold steady to it. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
Galatians 6:9 NLT.
AMEN. #dailyinspiration #bible #verse #pray #prayer #christian #dailydevotional #blessed #godsloveneverfails #God #galatians6

ltworg Many people feel as though we are living in very ungodly times, and they are right. The moral decline of our society is overwhelming as more and more people say, “Who is the Lord?” While these times certainly can seem desperate, they also are some of the most exciting times to be alive. The opportunity to know Christ and to make Him known is greater than any other time in history.

However, with this increased opportunity comes a responsibility -- one that demands us to take seriously our call to follow Christ.

Many have drifted in their faith by failing to guard their minds against Satan's evil thoughts, suggestions, and feelings. This is not unlike the believers of Crete, who came from a pagan background. That is why Paul sent Titus to the island of Crete: to establish a plumb line of God-honoring Truth and morality in the face of the increasing temptation to compromise the Truth. This is a battle we still fight today.

While the power of temptation was broken on the cross, we must remain keen to the enemy's tactics. Begin each day by putting on the "full armor of God” (Ephesians 6) so you can stand victoriously against the enemy.

Prayer: Father, thank You that I have victory over the enemy and power to live with hope for the future through Jesus Christ! I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen. "For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age" (Titus 2:11-12). #FullArmorOfGod #Victory #Grace #FollowChrist #StandFirm #LTWDevotional #Bible #devotional #dailydevotional #Jesus #Christian #God #MichaelYoussef #LeadingTheWay #Gospel #BibleStudy #truth #biblicaltruth

claireneill Take time today to rest in the knowledge of God’s boundless grace and reflect on Scripture below.

You do not want a sacrifice, or I would give it;
You are not pleased with a burnt offering.
The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit.
God, You will not despise a broken and humbled heart.
Psalm 51:16-17
