Live Worthy of God.

We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you to share in his Kingdom and glory.

β€” 1 Thessalonians 2:12 NLT

How are you supposed to share in the Kingdom and Glory of God, if you don’t live your life according to His will?

Many people seem to think they are God’s favorite, and they don’t live their lives according to His Word.  It is amazing to me that we can get comfortable with claiming a victorious life, and we don’t have to do right.

You want royalty status, on a beggars mentality.  It is wrong to want the best life, and live outside the boundaries of the Kingdom that you say you serve.  

Those people are the type that take the Grace of God for granted on purpose.  They refuse to be told how to live their lives.  Spoiled brats want the prestige that comes with being known, and they squander the riches that they haven’t earned.  It is because of mom or dad that they have this wealth.  They donor work hard for what they spend.  

We cannot live our lives like that before the Lord.  We might not be able to buy Grace and Mercy, but we sure can maintain its worth in our appreciation to the Lord for supplying our needs.

It is our job as leaders in the Body of faith to remind you how to live.  To urge you to trust and depend upon the Lord God.  He supplies you and I worth everything we have need of in our daily life.

Ask yourself, are you living life as God expects you to?  Would He be proud of your daily accomplishments?  If He is pleased with you, then you don’t have anything to worry about.  If you could improve your life, are you working on it?
