Paul Gives Some Good Advice
OCTOBER 25, 2021
KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity.
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
Whenever a person thinks it could be the very last time, they might be able to talk with someone, they often try to leave them with a little good advice. In First Corinthians, Paul has had to take a firm stance with some young Christians. He has let them know that some of the things they were doing were just wrong and needed to be stopped. However, at the end of the letter he tells them exactly what they need to do. In addition, what we as well should be doing today.
WATCH: Keep your eyes open and looking out for sin. It is everywhere. Also, be looking for Jesus. He is coming soon.
STAND: When you are confronted with sin, stand in your faith in Christ, and His strength.
QUIT YOU LIKE MEN: today we would say, Act like a man (or woman) of God. Be proud of whom you are in Him.
BE STRONG: Be empowered. Act like someone who is given authority under a great leader. After all, as a Christian you are.
DO EVERYTHING WITH CHARITY: While watching and standing in Christ, knowing He has empowered you, also treat everyone with love. Jesus loves everyone. That is why He came and died for them, just as He did for you and I who believe in Him today.
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
Christian, in today’s world we must take a stand against sin but love the sinners. Jesus said it best from the cross. “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
