Music Monday: “Jesus Is Coming Back” by Jordan Feliz [featuring Mandisa & others]
As many of you know, I have been working on a book manuscript for over ten years now; my mom has joined the cause to help me complete it. It hasn’t been an easy task, editing my words in the midst of trying to finish the last two chapters via voice recognition. That’s what I’ve been up to this last week.
I am looking forward to The Greater Things virtual conference at the end of this week. Hopefully, it will motivate me to be “around” creative people who use their talents to serve the Lord.
I have noticed how easy it is for me to write short blogs with biblical content, but it’s harder to write longer, more cohesive chapters.
This Monday, I want to encourage you not to give up. God’s given us certain talents or abilities to help each other on their faith journey – don’t discount yours. You might be the only introduction to the Lord that person has EVER!
Colossians 3: 23-24 reminds us, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving,”
For we know we don’t belong here; we are just travelers passing through on our way home. As 1 Peter 2:11 tells us, “Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain number six from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.”
For that reason, we must stay alert, realizing that we face challenges, not of this world meant to leave us without faith. That’s why we must dress for battle utilizing the pieces of armor that God has given us to defeat the evil one. Ephesians 6: 12 tells us, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Interested in learning how to dress more adequately for battle, you can read Ephesians 6:13-18.
