PEOPLE ACTUALLY READ MY BLOG!???
That is TOO exciting!
Anyway, it's rainy here. And I'm writing letters. 3 down, lots to go.
My blessed thought of the day:
"You are Christ's." - 1 Corinthians 3:23
What a crazy verse! It is action packed in every sense of the phrase! You belong to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. He made me. He knit you together. He thinks about you. He prays for you. He loves you and you are His. That is not light. That is so precious and wonderful! I can't even type that without smiling!
I want to strive to show the world that I am the servant, friend and bride of Jesus. Immortal principles forbid the friend of Christ to sin. Stand firm against sin saying to yourself, "I am Christ's." I'm reading an amazing book, this is a little part of it:
"Are you placed where others are sitting down idly, doing nothing? Rise to the work with all your powers; and when the sweat stands upon your brow, and you are tempted to loiter, cry, 'No, I cannot stop, for I am Christ's. If I were not purchased by blood, I might be like Issachar, crouching between two burdens; but I am Christ's, and cannot loiter.'"
Christian, your conduct should be so redolent of heaven, that all who see you may know that you are the Savior's recognizing in you His features of love and His countenance of holiness.
If I am tempted to smoke, drink, use foul language, think ungodly thoughts, look down on people I must stop myself and say, "I am Christ's!"
How honorable to be Christ's. You are His bride. And you are called to act as such. Just like a child reflects the parent, so you reflect Christ. Let it be evident: YOU ARE CHRIST'S!
