| || Thought for Nov 6, 1997 : Anything Less |
Do what is right, encourage the saints in your city, and worship the God of heaven and earth who without turning sent His Son to earth that we might have in human form, an example of God's perfect love, and the power of perfect love made manifest here on earth.
Since that time, God has chosen to add to His church the gift of His Holy Spirit which now is enabling us to live as we were intended to live - giving our lives as a perfect sacrifice to God. Not lives of death, filled with sin, but lives of true life which comes from the author of life, even Jesus Christ. And all this is ours so that in all things we may give praise, and glory, and power, and honor, and blessing, and thanks to the One True God.
He is our friend who sticks closer than a brother, our Abba who is our perfect faithful Father, and our Lord in whom is contained the infinite power and love that with a thought and word created the whole universe.
How can we, brothers and sisters, knowing this, do anything less than worship Him?
