for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!"
Do you need a cause in 2016?
How about this one:
"I have been initiated into the company of those whose work is to rid the world of evil...beginning with myself." George MacDonald
-allowing the Spirit of God to expose whatever in me is not lovely and keeps me from reaching my potential to love and be loved.
-accepting his good judgment with a heart of repentance and obedience.
-doing what He shows me is the right way and letting him produce a fruitful and satisfying life through me.
As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. --Psalm 17:15
My prayer for fellow followers of Jesus in 2016 is that together we might
- Mean what Jesus means
- Do what Jesus does
- Be known, like Jesus, not by religion, but by righteousness
- Be His Righteousness, not measured by the law of popular sentiment or political will, but Righteousness measured by the Law of Love.
