Practical Christian Living

My relationships
  • Friends are important to everyone, however some of those we call friends do not have our best interests at heart, or at least lead us away from God.             1 Corinthians 15:33
  • Family relationships are also important to us; however these too can make it difficult for us to be fully committed to God's purpose for us and His call upon our life. Matthew chapter 8
  • There are however relationships that God requires us to make every effort to maintain, these are:
  • Love your enemies - Jesus commands us in the New Testament, as well as sets us an example on the cross, that we should love our enemies.   Matthew 5:43-48
My thoughts
  • Our minds can become a great battlefield; a place where the devil, the enemy of our souls (1 Peter 5:8), can challenge us causing us to take our eyes off of Jesus, stumble and fall.  Ephesians 6:10-20
  • Areas where the Devil can tempt us in our minds:
    • Our thoughts can be bombarded in such a way that we are confused and feel unable to make righteous decisions
    • The Bible says we should take control of our thoughts - 2 Corinthians 10:5
    • We are also encouraged to renew our minds - Romans 12:2
