What Does God Want Me To Do?

 “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27).
We were created in God’s image. God is not talking about our physical appearance. We were created with the same attributes as God. Like God we can create, but not out of nothing. We are capable of showing mercy, being forgiving, being just, and being compassionate. One image of God that jumps out is LOVE! “God is love” (I John 4:8b). God doesn’t just love. God is love.


Come To Me

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and will show thee great things, and difficult, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).

Jeremiah was in prison. He had tried to preach to God’s people to warn them that God was going to punish them, but they would not listen. Jeremiah was truly alone and discouraged. The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah and said, “Call unto me.” God wanted Jeremiah to talk to Him.


A Time To Give

Today’s Scripture – Luke 6:38 – “…give and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38).

A very rich man once complained to a friend, “Why is it that everybody is criticizing me for being miserly? They all know that I have made provisions to leave everything I possess to charity when I die.”
