Recently my husband and I went to see the movie “War Room”. I was really impressed with the message as well as the acting.
The movie made me realize how each day we must choose to take up our cross and follow Jesus. How each and every day we need to choose to fight for our families, our friends and our co-workers. By that I mean we need to have a War Room where we can go and pray for them.
If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.
Let me ask you a question. What do you allow to enter your mind each day? By that I mean, what are you watching on television, or listening to on the radio, or what conversations are you participating in with other individuals?
What ever it is you are filling your mind with, that is who you become. If you listen to only rock and roll or country music then when a song pops into your head it is usually a rock and roll or country song, right? If you get involved in a television show where they are cussing a lot or using the Lord’s name in vain, then those are the same things that will fill your mind.
My challenge to you from this day forward is to fill your mind with the things of Jesus Christ. Let God be your guide. Don’t be tempted by this world.
The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
1 Corinthians 10:13
Take one day at a time. Each day you wake, ask yourself what can I do to glorify God’s kingdom today. I am on this journey with you.
