11 As you do all this, you know what time it is. The hour has already come for you to wake up from your sleep. Now our salvation is nearer than when we first had faith. 12 The night is almost over, and the day is near. So let’s get rid of the actions that belong to the darkness and put on the weapons of light. 13 Let’s behave appropriately as people who live in the day, not in partying and getting drunk, not in sleeping around and obscene behavior, not in fighting and obsession. 14 Instead, dress yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ, and don’t plan to indulge your selfish desires. (Romans 13:11-14, CEB)
Why do you do the things you do?
Is it for self gratification?
I found this meme and thought it was great.
If our religion is about controlling others and not ourselves, ten we got it wrong. We need to control our own thoughts and actions.
How do we do this?
How do you live your life, in the expectation of the coming of Christ? Not focused on Christ’s return, but on helping others see the love God has for them?
Live your life so Christ shines through.
Love People. Love God.
