Daily Fountain 2017 - Show The Light







Saturday May 27

Bible Reading:     Eph. 4: 1 - 10
Topic:         Show The Light

Step by step advice on how we can live a good Christian life is given by Paul in today's passage.

First he urges us to live a life worthy of our calling - that is "walk our talk"

Second we should be humble, gentle, patient and tolerant

Third, we should keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace, since all believers in Christ belong to one body united under one Head, Christ Himself (1 Cor. 12: 12 - 26) and have one Father and God.

And since God has given each of us gifts and abilities which if used in submission to the Holy Spirit will strengthen the whole body of Christ, each of us must endeavour to put those gifts to good use.

Allow these divine admonitions to bring changes in your life. Learn to be humble, patient, tolerant and peace seeking.
Don't allow the world to set the standard of your lifestyle.

As you live in the world, don't allow the world to live in you.

From today, let your life convince people around you that you are indeed a child of God and a good representative of His Kingdom

Prayer
Make me Lord, a practical instrument for peace, love and unity in my family and other places of engagement, Amen.

Memory Verse             Eph.  4: 10
"He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things."
