RIGHTEOUSNESS PURSUED â€“ REPORT FOR DUTY CONâ€™T
As the soldier is always ready with his weapons, that he may use them whenever he is ordered to by his C.O., so Christians ought to be ready at all times.
You gotta serve somebody. It may be the devil or it may be the Lord, but you gotta serve somebody.
The work done is not as important as the will to do it.
Think in the sphere of doctrine. Speak what is true, and to the use of edifying. Do that which is good. Walk steadily in the way that leads to maturity.
He is our rightful sovereign and He has absolute right to rule and we are called to do His will. It is foolish and dangerous to have a will opposed to Him in any respect. All our faculties and powers should be employed for Him. He is the reason for our great blessings.
He is of infinite excellence and is the best of masters. He is wise, generous, patient, faithful, true, and He loves us to infinity and beyond.
He has redeemed us so He could bless us. It is His desire to pour out His grace upon us.
He has called us to freedom.
He purchased us from the kingdom of darkness and placed us in His marvelous Kingdom.
We are now the servants of righteousness instead of the servants of sin; whether we live in that reality or not does not make it any less true!
We are called to bear Fruit. We are to be an everlasting sign of the goodness of the Lord.
