Welcome back. You belong here.
“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”
We all want more fame, more power, better privileges. Whether it’s at work, as citizens or at church, we long to have more in life.
When we come into power, we often use it in ways that benefit us not others.
God wants you to use your power, no matter how big or small, for the sake of others, to love others, to submit to one another, not to divide or hurt people around you.
You might say, but I don’ hurt anyone, in fact, I’m the one that’s being abused. God says that you have been given power for a purpose, to love one another and to submit whatever you have to others.
The Bible says in Galatians 5:15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
Today, be sure to use your power for the sake of others, when we do that, we will truly live lives of joy and peace.
