1 Peter 1:13-16, 23-25
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy”… For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you.

There are several individuals who have made a significant impact on mankind and are remembered today much after they died but they account for not even a fraction of a fraction of number of people who have lived and died on earth. Most human lives will have been lived without much reason or purpose and that is the grim reality. Everyone tries, aspires, makes goals, fights hard but eventually leave without much to look forward to or little to leave back. Is this a reality we can accept and if we are tired of fighting a losing battle with no hope in sight, is there one that we can fight for and make a difference?

God created us and this universe with a purpose but gave us the opportunity to choose our path. Every human has the choice to make about whether they want to direct their own life or they want to be directed by God who is in control. The biggest challenge is giving up control to one we cannot see and therefore cannot trust. Today we are reminded by God that we can put our trust in His one and only son Jesus Christ who came on earth to give us life and was crucified to die as our sin and was raised up to sit beside God in heaven to give us the hope of eternal life. In Christ, we have a hope, we have purpose and a destiny that can never be taken away. If we have Christ, we should run away from evil and its desires and live Holy lives. Are you born again in Christ or are you happy living in your own flesh?

In His Loving Service,

Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.

  1. Vineet, I’ve made my choice. I am born again in Christ! The other option just makes no sense to me any more. Peace, Linda

  2. I love how you stir us up that we might rise to the top, and praise and please Him. You speak from an understanding, yet remembering how it felt to fight a losing battle with no hope in sight. That sounds just like me too. That is why all the more we long to let others now that they don’t have to live that way. They have a choice! Chose Christ . . .for He has already chosen you (and me). . .love, deb

      Deb,
      It is amazing how inspirational God’s word can be and when we consider that these were the words spoken by the creator of time and space, it is no surprise. Our role as always is to serve His word faithfully and in that God is glorified and we are considered faithful. It is such a joy for me to know that I am serving God faithfully but it is even more joy to know that God loves me eternally! Just remembered your little princess in prayer.
      In Christ,
      Vineet
