MAY 28 – YOU

May 28                       1 Timothy 1:15

15 This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them all. 


The worst sinner that you know is you.  No one knows your heart but does.  Our sin is horrible.  Everyone of us has a thought life that is exceedingly embarrassing.  We hate, we covet, we are selfish and the Lord still loves us.  Oh Lord thank you for saving me a sinner. 



May 27                       1 Timothy 1:13

13even though I used to blaspheme the name of Christ. In my insolence, I persecuted his people. But God had mercy on me because I did it in ignorance and unbelief. 


God has great mercy on us.  We deserve punishment.  He cares for us with a love that far exceeds our sin.  Every day we do things that we don’t realize is sin and so many times we do things we know are sin and don’t care and God has mercy upon us.  Get an attitude of gratitude for our loving Lord has great mercy upon us. 



May 26                       1 Timothy 1:12

12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him, 


We are to develop an attitude of gratitude.  Everything we have comes from the Lord and He created us and gave us life.  Be about the Master’s business-be trustworthy and faithful to do what the Lord calls you to do. 



May 25                       1 Timothy 1:5

5 The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. 


We are filled with a lot of things but few of us are filled with love.  We hate.  We hurt.  We fear.  Jesus calls us to be filled with love then do!  Turn you heart and mind towards Jesus and He will fill you with love. 




May 24                       1 Timothy 1:4

4 Don’t let them waste their time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don’t help people live a life of faith in God. 


Love the Lord.  Love his fellowship with you.  Love those you are with.  In the early church outsiders said they knew them by their love for the brethren.  Love one another. 



MAY 23 – WHO?

May 23                       Ezekiel 48:11

11 This area is set aside for the ordained priests, the descendants of Zadok who served me faithfully and did not go astray with the people of Israel and the rest of the Levites. 


Who did the Lord remember?  Those that were faithful.  He will not forget you.  Be faithful.


MAY 22 – YOU

May 22                       2 Kings 22:4-7

4 “Go to Hilkiah the high priest and have him count the money the gatekeepers have collected from the people at the LORD ’s Temple. 5 Entrust this money to the men assigned to supervise the restoration of the LORD ’s Temple. Then they can use it to pay workers to repair the Temple. 6 They will need to hire carpenters, builders, and masons. Also have them buy the timber and the finished stone needed to repair the Temple. 7 But don’t require the construction supervisors to keep account of the money they receive, for they are honest and trustworthy men.” 


The Lord knows who you are and what you are.  He knows your heart.  Our relationship with Him is a heart relationship-by faith we believe and are saved. Serve the Lord with gladness.  Be His trustworthy servant. 




MAY 21 – DO

May 21                       2 Chronicles 34:10-12

10 He entrusted the money to the men assigned to supervise the restoration of the LORD ’s Temple. Then they paid the workers who did the repairs and renovation of the Temple.  11 They hired carpenters and builders, who purchased finished stone for the walls and timber for the rafters and beams. They restored what earlier kings of Judah had allowed to fall into ruin.  12 The workers served faithfully under the leadership of Jahath and Obadiah, Levites of the Merarite clan, and Zechariah and Meshullam, Levites of the Kohathite clan. Other Levites, all of whom were skilled musicians, 


Do the next right thing.  Commit today to the Lord and to yourself to spend time with Jesus and have the wisdom to do the next right thing. 



May 20                       2 Chronicles 19:9

9 These were his instructions to them: “You must always act in the fear of the LORD, with faithfulness and an undivided heart.


We are not God.  We do not know what is going on.  We cannot see those powers and principalities of the air and we are at their mercy if we are not under the Lord’s hand.  Fear God who can destroy completely but fear Him knowing of His great love for you. 





May 19                       1 Samuel 12:24

24 But be sure to fear the LORD and faithfully serve him. Think of all the wonderful things he has done for you. 


Have you thought about the wonderful things the Lord has done for you?  Make a list of Ten things the Lord has done for you.  Where would you be if He had not done those things?  Has the Lord not done anything for you lately?  Get with Jesus and talk with Him.  You need to come back to Him.
