I once heard, “Great sermons are not preached, they are lived.”
How challenging it is for us to read our Bibles every morning, and to absorb the teachings contained therein, and to put these powerful teachings into practice.
Let’s be completely honest about this; it’s very tough being a Christian and giving our life to Christ when we inhabit a body that is being tempted to sin!
That is why, in my humble opinion, it is absolutely essential that we spend as much time as possible each morning with our Heavenly Father, asking Him to prepare us for the day ahead and to help us and protect us from all the sinful opportunities being offered to us by Satan.
I know sometimes it’s hard to spend time with Jesus first thing in the morning.
But He knows what each day holds for us, and He longs to prepare us for every single problem He sees coming our way during the day.
Let’s accept His invitation to sit with Him. Let’s listen to Him intently. And let’s ask Him to intervene before our natural reactions to events betray our best intentions.
With many peaceful blessings
