Psalm 149, 1 Corinthians 15, 16

S: 1 Cor 16:13-14 “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.

O: Paul has been trying to help the Corinthians to understand that the gospel he preaches is the only one, the true one. It is the word of God Paul preached that the Corinthians accepted. Others have been trying to sidetrack them with different teachings, causing dissension within the people and some turning away from the teachings of Christ taught by Paul. Paul’s letter warns them of false prophets, to stand firm in their faith, to be brave and strong and to do all in love.

A: We could use these scriptures as a daily mantra. We need to be watchful of what others preach to us; we need to stand firm as a follower of Christ. It will take courage too for we’ll most likely have to step out of our comfort zone to be strong enough to follow through. All that we do on a day-to-day basis – do it with love. Show the love of Christ in our steps, our words, our actions.

P: Lord, this is just what I need to hear. Help me to do it all for the kingdom’s glory and never for mine.
