17. The messages I got from this week’s lesson are to:
Pursue with all my heart, soul, mind and resources to belong to God. I am not to chase after belonging to any other group or organization, even “the church” unless my first commitment is to God
Recognize that because I can, doesn’t mean that I should, even in the work of the church
Look to align myself with others who are filled with the holy spirit and with wisdom, without regard for any other skillset they may or may not have
To speak boldly, wisely and without shame of the gospel. Regardless of audience or potential repercussion.
To turn my eyes to heaven more often, with the delight of knowing, whether I’m given the physical clarity of vision to see Him, that Jesus is there, at the right hand of God, my Father.
Through all adversity, no matter how severe, the appropriate response to my enemies, especially when they are clearly God’s enemies, is to:
– speak the truth to them
– pray for them
