A Thought for Today October 17, 2019

“A Believer’s Challenge”
 
The scriptures are not given to live a status quo life.
 
We don’t automatically reach some Spiritual plateau and decide we have arrived at the summit of our faith walk.
 
God’s Word continues to challenge us to be on the upward climb.
 
Please read the following verses and see how they challenge you.
 
May you be richly blessed in this new day the Lord has given you.
1 Thessalonians 5:12-24
12 And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. 15 See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
16 Rejoice always,
17 pray without ceasing,
18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
 
19 Do not quench the Spirit.
20 Do not despise prophecies.
21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.
22 Abstain from every form of evil.
 
23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
