Good morning, Faithful One!
Thank you for protecting my heart in so many ways, so that when betrayal strikes, it does not destroy me. Thank you for helping me by infusing me with your strength, not having to count on my own. Thank you for teaching me so many valuable lessons already this day that is barely five hours old. Please help me to remain strong, resting on you and not trying to make my own rash decisions. I want only to be faithful to you, Oh Lord. I want to be found faithful and true to you, to give you the best reflection of this small part of yourself that you have planted within me. Let me be mirrors to your eyes, reflecting your Love to anyone and everyone I meet. Cleanse me of all my spots that cloud up your reflection. Make me more pleasing to you. Amen.
Colossians 3:18-25 ERV
Wives, be willing to serve your husbands. This is the right thing to do in following the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, and be gentle to them.
Children, obey your parents in everything. This pleases the Lord.
Fathers, don’t upset your children. If you are too hard to please, they might want to stop trying.
Servants, obey your masters in everything. Obey all the time, even when they can’t see you. Don’t just pretend to work hard so that they will treat you well. No, you must serve your masters honestly because you respect the Lord.
In all the work you are given, do the best you can. Work as though you are working for the Lord, not any earthly master.
Remember that you will receive your reward from the Lord, who will give you what he promised his people. Yes, you are serving Christ. He is your real Master.
Remember that anyone who does wrong will be punished for that wrong. And the Lord treats everyone the same.
Hebrews 1:3 He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact likeness of his being, and he holds everything together by his powerful word. After he had provided a cleansing from sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Highest Majesty
Hebrews 10:1 For the Law, being only a reflection of the blessings to come and not their substance, can never make perfect those who come near by the same sacrifices repeatedly offered year after year.
