Many Strands Challenge ~ Seeking God’s Wisdom for 2014 ~ Day 15

Seeking God's Wisdom - Day 15

Today’s Assignment ~ Make sure that you have your prayer journal with you as you complete each day’s reading.  You are going to want to keep track of the verses that are resonating with you, as you read.

1. If you have not already done so, answer the questions in this blog-post;

https://heisourstrongtower.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/many-strands-challenge-seeking-gods-wisdom-for-2014/

If you have answered them…review your answers prior to reading today’s assignment.

2. Say a prayer asking God to reveal Himself to you through His word.

3. Read the book of Titus and as you read, highlight verses that are speaking to your heart and reflect on these questions…  

  • What is the main point of this portion? 
  • What does God – Father, Son or Holy Spirit – reveal of himself? 
  • What insight am I given into myself and into my life situation? Is there an example of a warning to heed? A promise to claim? 
  • What does Christ require of me now, in thought, word or action? 

 

A reflection on today’s reading… 

15 “Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted. 16 Such people claim they know God, but they deny him by the way they live. They are detestable and disobedient, worthless for doing anything good.” 

I have met many people through conducting these on-line Bible Studies and challenges that I might not have known any other way.  And even though I have never met most of them face to face they have revealed their true hearts to me through their daily posts, the occasional phone conversation and their willingness to pray and offer encouragement to me, and, most importantly, through the leading of the Holy Spirit.  This is the positive side to our interaction through social media.

There is a darker side too.  Facebook posts don’t just shine a light on the good inside of us; they also can shine a light on what is negative in us too.

I want my life, and that includes my posts into a social media forum to reveal a sincere heart that loves the Lord.  I want people to look at me and not see me, but see Jesus shining through.   I don’t want to ruin what God is doing through the Many Strands page by posting ungodly thoughts or pictures…I am even careful about sharing posts from other pages.  If the name of the page does not match the post they are sharing, I will not place it on my profile page.

Christ followers are supposed to look like Christ.  We are not to follow the ways of this world or to look and act as they do.  We need to be the light and shine that light on Jesus.  I don’t care if you remember my name, or if you like or follow me…I care that what I share makes you remember His name, and points you to Love and follow Jesus!!!

Are your posts on social media shining the light of Jesus and pointing other’s to Christ??

After I finished writing this I saw a video entitled “Does Anybody Know That You’re A Christian?”  I am sharing it with you below and I just want to say…We do serve an awesome God!!!

  1. Patti, thank you I went to bible gateway and found a easy read version and it was helpful. I don’t often post but when I do I an very careful to only say what I know will be a blessing to others and will only like things that I believe are for the better of all. You really have to be careful of what you read and what you like because comes out the mouth should always be for the good of all.

    • Once you have made an observation you take on a obligation!!! We do have to be careful and I just pray daily that what I share is coming from God and is for His honor and glory.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
