Today's Good News


8/06 1 Thessalonians 5:14-18
14 Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone. 15 See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to everyone else. 16 Always be joyful. 17 Keep on praying. 18 No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
We belong to Jesus therefore we are to live in victory. We can have joy and peace in the face of really bad situations. Jesus is the key. Is He in control of my life or will I seek to control it and only turn to Jesus when life gets out of hand. Humility and dependence are elements of a surrendered Christian walk.
