A NEW YOU FOR THE NEW YEAR
4 FEB 2018
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. - Romans 12:1 (NIV)
As the year goes by, we will many ups and downs in our lives. Admist all these, we always have to ask ourselves: How are we living our lives?
1. Be Thankful
Humility is not thinking less of myself, but thinking of ourselves less.
How we perceive what God did for us on the cross determines how we love our lives.
Do we view what God has given to us as a curse or a blessing?
2. Be Willing
Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return.
A willing heart clears up one's schedule for God, and not fit God in one's schedule.
Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son to obey God; Jesus was willing to endure the pain and die on the cross for us.
3. Be Holy
Holiness is a command, not a request.
God is not restricting us by his commandments, but he is protecting us.
Repay evil with good.
