1 Thessalonians 5:17
Pray without ceasing.
Prayer is a very important part of a believer’s walk with the Lord. Bible says to never stop praying, pray continuously. In all circumstances, and every moment, talk to God.
Every waking hour, we need to talk to God in the awareness that God is near us and that He is active in our thoughts and actions. By talking to God continuously, we acknowledge that God is engaged in our everyday lives. And that He is 100% involved in every moment of our lives.
God answers our prayers. He guides our every step and reveals His will and plan for our lives, as we walk close to Him. Stay on the course and never stop talking to God.
Our relationship with God is eternal and thus the need for our constant communication with Him.
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
As followers of Christ we should emulate the example of Jesus whose words were so filled with grace that the multitudes were amazed (Luke 4:22).
Whatever is in your heart determines what you say. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart (Matt 12:34-35).
When one becomes a Christian, there is an expectancy that a change of speech follows because living for Christ makes a difference in one’s choice of words.
Let’s fill our hearts with the love of Christ so that gracious words can come out of our mouths.
6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
As Christians we all need to follow His nature, that is, to be servant hearted, humble and of no reputation. Though Jesus was God, He gave up His privileges and took the humble position as a servant and was born as human being.
The greatest leader of all time is Jesus Christ. True leadership is servanthood. Serving others is the very essence of ministry. All believers are called to ministry.
Our ministry is this: Matthew 28:18-20
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Following His humble nature and doing His ministry is every believer’s way of life.
