Jesus Is The Good Shepherd And The Ultimate Provider
Our Lord Jesus takes care of us and provides all that we need. In fact, He is the best or the ultimate provider and leads/guides us (when we allow Him to). It is the Lord, who feeds us. He is responsible for our well-being. The Lord is the one who keeps and guards us. As a result of His care, we have all we need. So we can say, “I shall not want” or “I am not in need of anything.”

The Royal Law; Love Others As You Love Yourself
Testing Jesus about his law—how bold is that? A Pharisees (social movement) lawyer (or expert in Moses’ law) posed a question to Jesus to put him to the test. 1 Corinthians 13 helps us understand why love is the supreme/royal law. Speaking in tongues, prophesying, knowledge, great faith, charitable giving, and martyrdom are nothing without love—love that never ends—it is the greatest of all things. God demonstrated this love—His royal law by giving us His son so that we can have eternal life.

And that is why you’ll see wonderful things happen because God can do the impossible. Believe it and you will see it!

So study, enjoy the benefits of, and follow God’s guidance through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.

Choose Friends Carefully, A Warning To All Godly People
Since we are all a part of God’s family, to respect God, we should look to other believers as our closest friends. We must also keep ourselves apart from nonbelievers. But we shouldn’t fully isolate ourselves from the non-believers (1 Corinthians 5:9-12). Let your light shine at all times and remember to pick friends wisely since even those who do not believe can experience God’s love through our life.

Press On Toward The Goal To Get God’s Reward
When we were sinners, we thought about and did things that were wrong in God’s eyes. Yes, we did things that did not please God and we went to places that God would be ashamed of. However, now we should think of things that are good in the sight of God. In fact, we should do things that please God and go places where God would love to be. So, release yourself from that burden, set yourself free, and let go of the old you and everything connected to it. Press on toward the reward that God has for you.
What They Teach Is Better Than What God Said?
Your primary reason for attending services should be to learn how to live to please God. If your pastor is not doing this then you are in the wrong place.
• Is what they teach about right and wrong ways to live, talk, and treat others? There is more to pastoring than making people feel good (2 Timothy 4:1-5).
• Do they use the Word of God to back up what they teach? Never get so comfortable with what they teach that you will not verify it by studying the Word yourself [Acts 17:11].
