KISS and PRAY!
1 Thessalonians 5:25-28
KISS and PRAY!
I know that your interest is excitedly peaked
or your eyebrow might be slightly raised, or maybe you are just outright giving
me the side eye….. but please KEEP READING!
I have only minimized the verbiage in our verses for today. Here is what the text actually says…
and sisters, PRAY for us.
Greet all God’s people
with a holy KISS. I charge you before the Lord
to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters.
GOD IS FAITHFUL!
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and
whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming
of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable.
If he said it, he’ll do it![MSG]
BlogFam, I have to be honest with
you. I really do feel a deep sense of
JOY and SATISFACTION every time I write and post a new blog. I have no doubt that writing is one of my
assignments in the Kingdom.
1 Thessalonians 5:20
not treat prophecies with contempt but test
hold on to what is good, reject
every kind of evil.
For probably more years that any one of us
can count, the word, the practice, the content of what is or is not considered
a PROPHETIC word has been in controversy.
And though it is a gift of the Spirit, the ways in which we have seen it
in operation is often not reminiscent of the ancient prophets as recorded in
NOT Quench the Spirit!
1 Thessalonians 5:19
There are a lot of things we really just need
to STOP doing. I am sure that there are
things you can think of in your own life and obviously in the lives of others
that you think just need to STOP. There
are many reasons why we do not STOP the things we need to STOP and I will not
explore all of those here but I will at least say that STOPPING the things we
need to STOP is not always so easy. I
could make a list of things I need to STOP in my own life but “ain’t nobody got
time for that!
A Prescription for Life in the Face of
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
always, pray continually, give
thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ
BlogFam, as I write this post, I cannot separate
the thoughts, feelings, emotions that I have regarding the verdict in the case
against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in the State
of Florida. I am very intentional about
not using this blog as a space for social or political commentary on the
current events of the day because that is not the intent of this blog.
