My Focus

My focus from CorinthiansNotes from journal: Reading Corinthians :1

One of the things I noticed as Paul was writing to the church of Corinth:

*He encouraged believers

*He wanted them to be blessed

*He wanted them to have peace in their heart and mind

*He doesn’t want to stop thanking God for having people in his life especially other believers

*He reminds us all to be thankful in how God has enriched our lives, given us truth, power and the ability to speak, and has given us forgiveness and grace

He also tells us:

* Don’t argue or have church splits

*Desire unity in thought and purpose

*Boast only what God has done

Sometimes we desire signs, or sometimes people think Christians are foolish but we must remember that Jesus has made us acceptable to God, pure and holy and that He alone purchased us.

In this little chapter it speaks much to me.  My prayer and focus is to always remember to encourage others and be happy for the blessings that come their way.  Every decision I make must be that of peace and to promote peace and unity within the hearts and minds of people.  I must always remember to be thankful for what Jesus has done for all of us, purchased us so that we may be a blessing to others.
