Hebrews 10:24 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Have you been watching the daily Dr. Luke Travelogue videos posted on the SRC website and app? It has been so encouraging reading through the book of Luke together as a church. What has been the most encouraging to me is watching the Travelogue videos and seeing both SRC staff and lay leaders spending time in God’s word to encourage their own souls but also to then encourage others toward love and good deeds. The readings are shorter so you are really able to meditate and focus on a few verses each day. Join hundreds of others here at SRC in reading through the book of Luke by going to our website or SRC app for the daily readings and video.
Nothing is more common to the human experience than change. Babies grow into adulthood; the young become older; seasons change but our God remains the same. James 1:17-18 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” In times of trial or success we depend on Christ. Romans 5:2-5, “We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” With God's love we can not only love him, but we can love ourselves and each other. Keep pressing on and expect God’s best in the new year. Be encouraged!
