Having begun my online classes with Liberty University two weeks ago, I have a lot to relect upon and be thankful for.
Firstly, I have learned a lot about the Word of God these past couple of weeks in my studies. This has taught me to not just preach what I say, but to practically live out what the Word of God teaches. This is because I want to be an example of Christ to all who I meet.”Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.”~1 Corinthians 11:1~
Secondly, God is growing me to live out Christian doctrine through Him, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I do this out of faith, hope, and love for Christ and His Gospel. “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three, but the greatest of these is charity.”~1 Corinthians 13:13~
Thirdly, God’s desires for me are becoming one with me. As this is happening, my love for the Lord has grown so much that I desire to fulfill His purpose for me in this stage of my life. “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”~Psalm 37:4~
During this period that I am taking classes for the Summer, the Lord has called me to seperate myself from my family for three months. This is so that I can focus on what matters the most: a relationship with God, just as Mary did in the Bible. “But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”~Luke 10:42~
My prayer is that my family will become followers of Jesus Christ and put their trust in Him as I have, as their Savior and Lord. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”~Romans 10:9~
My other prayer for my family is that they will not only become followers of Jesus Christ, but that they will let the God of peace make an everlasting covenant with them so that God’s blessing may shower rain upon them to heal, in the name of Jesus. “Moreover I will make a covenant with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.”~Ezekiel 37:26~
Only the peace of God can surpass the good that is to come out of His ways. “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 4:7~
Pray for my family. I will not give up on them because Christ Jesus never gave up on them. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”~John 3:16~
Thank you everyone and God bless.
