Being Uncomfortably Content

Meditating on the Bible is one way to find God's peace and contentment. Here are helpful verses taken from the New King James Version.

"When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands." -Deuteronomy 24:19

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:9

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. -Psalm 56:3 read more

Free from Sin

 
??"For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace" (Romans 6:14, NKJV).

 

Why shouldn't sin have dominion over us? Because we no longer possess a sin nature, but we have entered God’s empowerment, possessing the nature of Jesus Himself. We are free from the power of sin!

The Message says, "Sin can't tell you how to live." God's Word, the truth, declares here that gossip, slander and lying no longer have dominion over you. Adultery, sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, pornography or any other impurity no longer dominates you. Hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness, prejudice and envy no longer control you. Uncontrolled anger, rage and outbursts of wrath have lost their authority in your life. Stealing, substance abuse and alcohol addiction are no longer a master over you. Disobedience to authority, stubbornness and insubordination have lost their dominion over you. And the list continues. read more

Talking Faith

Below are some examples of how some well-known Christians use their testimony to talk about Christ.

"I give God all the credit for my existence, for everything that I've ever become. This thing called grace and mercy, that my mother used to talk about all the time, is all I got." -Steve Harvey, comedian, author

"I think that because inside of every one of us we have something tugging at us, telling us to believe in something, to have faith in something bigger than ourselves. [Jesus Christ through His Word] is actually the answer that people are looking for. They just don't know it." - Denzel Washington, actor

"The Gospels are for everybody from the smallest child to the wisest sage and I fall somewhere in the middle." --Mel Gibson, actor

"I came to faith as a young boy at 12 years old. It was a Sunday school teacher that lead me to the Lord. As a senior in high school, I recommitted my life. I was actually going to grow up and be a pastor, but then I got a job making movies and videos. And that's where the Lord's led me."--Ralph Winter, producer
