6 & 7 January

I was having issues with blogger yesterday and not able to post. So I will be combining yesterday's and today's journal posts. Thanks for understanding!!!!

Exodus 16:19-20 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Moses said to them, "No one is to let any of it remain until morning." But they didn't listen to Moses; some people left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and smelled. Therefore Moses was angry with them.
In Bible God and Jesus are called our river of life , fountain of life, and even living waters. Now picture a beaver building a dam. What does the dam do to a flowing body of water? It stops it, that's right. Well we become beavers with God's blessings when we keep them all to ourselves! When God blesses us with something, he doesn't want us to keep it to ourselves, NO he wants us to share it. I want you to stop and list 3 ways you can share the blessings of Christ's salvation to your friends or your family. Remember sometimes its not just telling people who Christ is but letting Christ shine through our lives!! 



Don't forget to take time to practice being still and listening to God. Write down what He is telling you so you do not forget!!!

John 15:1-4 (Holman Christian Standard Bible) 
"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vineyard keeper. Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit He removes, and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me. 

To be a disciple means you must be disciplined in Christ's teachings. Do you think you can become disciplined if you don't spend every day with Christ? What about if all you do is just talk to God but never listen to what He has to say to you? We can often find reasons and excuses as to why we don't make time to spend with God daily. Remember that to be a disciple of Christ means you are disciplined in His teachings and to be disciplined you will have to give up what you WANT to do for what Christ is TELLING you to do. What is something you can think of right now that you can give up for Christ?

Now list one thing you are going to do for Christ that He has asked you to do.
