S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
In St. Paul’s final greetings to the Church at Corinth, he presents “The 5 Keys To Having God’s Presence All The Time.” He says rejoice! Make sure anyone who messes up is fully restored. Keep encouraging one another. Stay united and live in peace. If you do this, the God of love and peace will be with you all the time.
When you think about “The 5 Keys To Having God’s Presence All The Time,” you must realize they are all decisions that you and I as “Followers of Jesus” must continually choose. It’s obvious that rejoicing has to do with a positive, happy mental attitude. That’s a choice. Restoring those who fall among you is a choice. Encouraging one another with good words is a choice. Staying united is a choice and living in peace is also a choice. Things don’t just happen in order for us to live continually in the presence of God. The decisions we make and keep on making … “Against All Odds” … will determine our ability to feel God all the time. And … That’s what WE want.
Today I choose to Rejoice and to Restore my brothers and sisters when they fall. I also choose to be an Encourager, to choose Unity, and to Live at Peace. I sure can’t do it without Your help. Please help me! Amen
