BE VERY CAREFUL, THEN, HOW YOU LIVE—NOT AS UNWISE BUT AS WISE, MAKING THE MOST OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY, BECAUSE THE DAYS ARE EVIL
Beloved, be very careful how you live. The days are evil. Do not live your life as an unwise person, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity. Be careful that you do not live your life from, and through, and to the father-of-lies, but discipline yourself to live your life through, from, and to My Son, Jesus Christ. The thief came to live his ABANDONED LIFE in you, but My Son came to be the Medium in you, into whom I will deposit MY ABUNDANT LIFE.
FOR FROM HIM AND THROUGH HIM AND TO HIM ARE ALL THINGS. TO HIM BE THE GLORY FOREVER!
Do you want to make the most of your life? Ask yourself, moment-by-moment, whether who you are is FROM God, and THROUGH God, and TO God. Stop believing everything you think, but take hold of the person you are and ask God to deposit His Abundant Life in you.
Do you want to make the most of a bad situation? Ask yourself, daily, whether what you believe about someone or something is FROM God, and THROUGH God, and TO God. You can obtain this quality of life by not relying on your own perceptions, interpretations, or conclusions, but by actively asking God for His moment-by-moment Perspective.
Do you want to make the most of your purpose? Then, ask yourself, daily, whether what you do, at a given moment, is FROM God, and THROUGH God, and TO God, because the thief came to kill you, steal from you, and destroy you through his abandoned life, but the Lord Jesus came so you may have God’s abundant Life.
THE THIEF DOES NOT COME EXCEPT TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY. I HAVE COME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY
What percentage of your day do you live as an unwise person, entertaining perceptions about yourself and others that are not FROM God, THROUGH God, and TO God?
What percentage of your day do you live as a wise person, making sure that who you are and what you do is FROM God, THROUGH God, and TO God?
How might you make the most of every opportunity, from now on?
PRAYER: Lord God, to You be the glory, forever and ever, for TO You, and FROM You, and THROUGH You are all things…even my life.
Maintain an Awareness
Sin is not something mysterious…something unexplainable…something that happens to you. Sin does not stand alone. It does not happen by itself. Sinful solutions have a source—the source of the OLD MAN.
