Daily Challenge-Doing What Is Good

January 14th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to take a step toward doing what is good.

The Apostle Paul wrote why this is important in Titus 3:14-Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.

God put us here on earth to make a difference. He called us to be a light in the world-to reflect His heart of love for a broken world. One of the ways we shine that light is to do good deeds that glorify God in heaven.

When we see the good deeds of Jesus, we see that He was about proclaiming good news, healing, setting the oppressed free, and demonstrating love through humble service and sacrifice.

Take the daily challenge to follow in Jesus’ footsteps by doing what is good on the journey of faith.

Freedom Phrase-New Purpose

March 15th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on Acts 17:28a.

The Apostle Paul said, “For in him we live and move and have our being.”

The good news of Jesus gives us a new purpose in life. Our focus when waking up in the morning is to know God better and be an instrument that makes Him known in the world. First Corinthians 10:31, says, “whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

As we walk with God, our mind becomes trained to commit all our activity to the glory of God, even in the ordinary activities of eating and drinking. This is the main purpose of our lives-to glorify God. That is also the motivation of our heart that enables our faith to be a thriving witness for Jesus.

Through Jesus, we are set free with a new purpose to glorify God.
