Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:
Take your everyday, ordinary life — your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life — and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what He wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12: 1-2 (MSG)
I don’t know about you, but I enjoy reading verses in different versions of the Bible. I feel it gives me a clearer understanding. A friend of mine recently shared Romans 12:1-2 with me in The Message Bible and I really appreciated the translation. I wanted to share this with you and encourage you to give all to God. The big and small. Fix your attention on Him!
Now it is your turn!
What Bible verse is blessing you today?
