Joel 2:23 NIV
Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household.”
God’s household is not a building, but a group of people. We need to work and live in harmony with each other.
“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy”
Wow! What could be better than that? We can get through any trial when we know that we have God’s love and support.
2 Corinthians 7:1
“Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.”
We all need to turn away from sin and toward God. Please, Lord, let it be so!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Have you realized all the ways God has helped you?
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
We shouldn’t just pretend to love others. We should love others from our hearts. Think what a community would be like if everyone loved with their hearts and tried to help others in need. Good, right?
Then He said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for Me will save it.”
Being his disciple means putting aside selfish desires, shouldering one’s “cross” every day, and following Him. It is simple and yet so demanding. For the original Twelve, this meant literal suffering and death. For believers today, it means understanding that we belong to Him and that we live to serve His purposes.
