All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)

Scripture is alive and beautiful. Make every attempt to immerse yourself in it. You will learn, be advised, corrected, trained and reminded of the eternal hope we have in our Savior.

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.”
Revelation 3:20 (ESV)

Sometimes we need to quiet our hearts and minds enough to hear God knocking at the door of our heart. Take some time today to be still, listen and invite God in.

It is not an enemy who taunts me— I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me— I could have hidden from them. Instead, it is you—my equal, my companion and close friend. What good fellowship we once enjoyed as we walked together to the house of God.
Psalm 55:12-14 (NLT)

More often than not, it is those closest to us who we have the ability to hurt and who have the ability to hurt us. So, be intentional in relationships, mend hurts and heal division.

Be on guard! Sin is literally crouching at your door. Ask for the strength and grace to rule over it.
