19 Days To Live, May 15



I am almost at the mid-way point of one month to live. I haven't yet accomplished everything that I would like to with this series from a personal basis. One of the things that I'm working on is celebrating my friends and family more. Last night I spent the evening with a close friend who was in from out of town. It was great to catch up and encourage one another in our spiritual journey. I still want to grow closer to my family and especially to God. I am enjoying my time with God but I want to keep going deeper. The verses for the last 2 days scheduled reading have been...

Ephesians 4:26-27, "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold.
Romans 15:7, Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.


These verses are so powerful. They seem simple and reasonable, but through life experience I know that they are very difficult to live out. Sometimes I get angry and give the devil my foot, leg, upper torso... The foothold generally affects my attitude. My attitude towards Gods authority in my life. Other times I don't accept people for different reasons or excuses. I want to live these scriptures out today. I want to be someone that works through anger and someone that is accepting of others, even if I don't agree with their lifestyle. As a Christ-follower, I am not called to stand in judgement of others. That's God's job. I am called to be a light in a very dark world. Who do you need to forgive today? Who do you need to 'accept' that isn't like you? Start today, tomorrow is not promised.
