Meat and Potatoes make Strong Christians

Dessert is Encouragement.  Encouragement is good, but too much of it without meat and potatoes can't make you as strong and balanced. The meat and the potatoes of walking in Christ is godly Correction.  Godly correction is given to those who are able and if you  have invited Christ in your life, Jesus Christ, God in flesh, who died and rose again, lives in you, that means God is able and God lives in you!   The result of this kind of correction is good fruit.  Godly medicine can often be rebuke, but also love. : )   Discipline are often the vegetables of life.  Let God feed you a good and healthy meal to make you stronger this week.

...the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

Galatians 5:22-23

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
