Snatch Them From Fire

Scripture: Jude 1: [23] snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear–hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

Observation: Snatch others from the fire is the great commission, the one thing that Jesus asked us to do. If we look at others, as if we don’t try to reach them what they have in store for them is an eternity of fire, only because we didn’t make the effort to introduce them to Jesus. Jesus is asking us to go into a burning building to rescue them, He is asking us to tell them not to enter the building.

Application: To be aware of the people around us that are not saved and that I have a responsibility, no a command from God to do whatever I can to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to save others from Hell.

Prayer: Dear Lord thank you that you put Justin in my life and that you used him to snatch me out of the fire. Show me how to be a spiritual fireman for you. Use me to save lives.

Being Rewarded Fully

Scripture: 2 John 1: [8] Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.

Observation: I need to make sure I persevere in my walk with Christ. Be aware of getting caught up in the things of this world. I have come a long way since I’ve been saved and still have a long way to go. I can’t afford to lose any ground.

Application: Make sure each day I advance in my walk, having my focus on Christ and the man He wants me to be. God has blessed me so much here on earth and I know He has even more rewards for me when I get home if only I do His will.

Prayer: Dear Lord strengthen me in my walk with you. Help me each day to reach the goal You have set for me.

Obey God’s Commands

Scripture: 1 John 5: [3] This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,

Observation: If I say I love God I must obey Him. That is my purpose to obey what God is calling me to do. He only asks what is good for me, He loves me and wants me to succeed in fulfilling my purpose He has given me. My greatest joy is when I’m in God’s will.

Application: Listen to God throughout the day, look for His will then obey it. In all I do find out what would please God, stay on His path to fulfill the purpose He has given me.

Prayer: Dear Lord open my eyes to your will, may you find no fault in me as I strive to be obedient to you.

God Lives In Us

Scripture: 1 John 4: [12] No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Observation: But if we love one another. Why is it so hard at times to love others, yet so easy to judge. Why can’t I look around and see children of God instead of seeing faults and judging by appearance. God won’t fully live in me until I soften this hard heart and open my eyes to my brothers and sisters. I desire God’s love and all He asks is to love His children as I love myself.

Application: Start looking at others as God sees them. I have no right to judge or look down on anyone. If God can love a sinner like me it should be easy for me to love anyone else.

Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for your love, grace and mercy. Make your love complete in me. May I see others through your eyes and reach out with your love.
