Do What Is Good 04-01-24

Praise the Lord for another day and another chance to bask in His mercy and grace. The theme here today is about the way we should be living.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before You today on behalf of my married brothers and sisters in Christ to make this request. In our marriage vows we professed — “for better or for worse, in sickness or in health, till death do us part” — oh Lord, we promised, didn’t we? We didn’t know it would be like this, but we did promise. Help us grow up, to accept our responsibilities, not alone, but with Your help. We need You, Lord, each day. Thank You for being there, for without You we make a mess of things. In the matchless name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Do What Is Good

Titus 3:1-11

  Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good. They must not slander anyone and must avoid quarreling. Instead, they should be gentle and show true humility to everyone. Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. But—“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.” This is a trustworthy saying, and I want you to insist on these teachings so that all who trust in God will devote themselves to doing good. These teachings are good and beneficial for everyone. Do not get involved in foolish discussions about spiritual pedigrees or in quarrels and fights about obedience to Jewish laws. These things are useless and a waste of time. If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. For people like that have turned away from the truth, and their own sins condemn them.

Quote of the Day

We want, in fact, not so much a father in heaven as a grandfather in heaven: a senile benevolence who, as they say, “liked to see young people enjoying themselves” and whose plan for the universe was simply that it might be truly said at the end of each day, “a good time was had by all.

(Speaking of man’s reluctance to accept God’s correction and discipline.)
