Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Nehemiah 10 & 11)
“Loving Is Giving”
Text: Nehemiah 10:29
“these joined with their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse and an oath to walk in God’s Law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and His ordinances and His statutes:”
“Loving Is Giving,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
As Repentance and Faith are Companions, so are Loving and Giving; they grow together as we Walk With God In Faithful Obedience.
The People all Gave themselves to God, individually and as a nation, when they sealed this Covenant of Obedience with God.
When they Gave themselves to God they also gave their Resources; their finances, of tithes and offerings, their preference of where to live, in war-torn Jerusalem or outside of Jerusalem where it was more pleasant.
In other words, when we Love God Supremely we give ourself and our resources to Him completely; His Desires Become Our Desires….
This is the Work that Holy Spirit does in you and I when we surrender our life to Jesus Christ.(Phil.2:12-13).
“We Give Because We Love”
Who or what we Love is what we Give ourself to.
Christmas is a season of Giving because God Gave His Only Begotten Son to mankind; (John 3:16) and Jesus Christ Son of God and Son of Man Gave Himself for to be our Lord, Savior, and Redeemer from sin. (Heb.10:14).
Because of Love God Gives….
Because of Love You and I Give.
We Love God Supremely, more than anyone or anything else and that’s why we present our body to Him everyday as a living sacrifice to Him, Alone! (Rom.12:1-2).
Because of our Love for God we Love our family, spouse and children, and extended family members.
Because of our Love for God, and our Family we Love God’s People the Family of God.
And because of Love you and I Love God’s Creation including those who do not YET know Him as their Lord and Savior…..
Lastly, let’s Remember and Rehearse this Truth:
We Love God because He First Loved Us, and TAUGHT Us HOW To Love The Way He Loves…(1John 4:19). Oooh Rah!
We Give BECAUSE We Love!
Warrior at your side,
