Discipleship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Having faith does not give us a license to make unwise choices and expect God to save us from harm.

Challenge:

God expects you to act in a Christian manner while here on earth; if you do not it may be to your own peril. Think about God before you act and let Christ’s example lead the way and you’ll always make the right choice.

Reference:

Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1 (NABRE)

Remember the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Challenge:

Emulate God’s perfect love by giving of yourself without expecting anything in return. The blessing of being able to love another is all you need.

Reference:

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Philippians 2:1-3 (NABRE)
