Friends in Christ Weekly Message
November 3, 2007
Because we know that this extraordinary day is just ahead, we pray for you all the time - pray that our God will make you fit for what he's called you to be, pray that he'll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with his own energy so that it all amounts to something. If your life honors the name of Jesus, he will honor you. Grace is behind and through all of this, our God giving himself freely, the Master, Jesus Christ, giving himself freely.
2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (Message*)
It is when what we do is filled with God's energy that it amounts to something. What we do in our own strength falls far short. Our whole life - everything we say and do - needs to honor the name of Jesus. Only God's grace makes this possible, and God gives His grace freely.
Is your life filled with God's grace and God's energy?
