3 John 11

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.
3 John 11 NASB

God, it is sometimes so hard to live a godly life when all around me evil resides. I see it, hear it, and sometimes I am the receiver of it. I pray Lord God to be strengthened by the power of the blood to depart from evil and do good; to seek peace and pursue it so I will abide forever in Your righteousness. Help me Jesus to imitate good and practice righteousness as You have demonstrated. I want to be known as Your child by walking in Your righteousness Jesus practicing until I see You in all Your glory. Amen.
Psalm 34:14/Psalm 37:27/1 John 2:29/1 John 3:10 NASB

Continually Seeking Him,

Who Desires Life?

Who is the man who desires life And loves length of days that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. — Psalm 34:12-14

If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. — James 1:26 (NLT)

What we say is a testimony to all who are in earshot of our words. Do we walk what we talk? Do we speak as to glorify God or do we speak evil and deceit? Do our words exalt our Lord or bring shame upon the Him?

Allow Jesus, our role model, our example “who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth;” (1 Peter 2:22) transform you into a person who is an example to others drawing them to Jesus.

Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. — Hebrews 12:14
