Repost @rlccadillac Day 20 of Galatians devo!
Read Galatians 4:17-20
The Motive Behind the Actions "Those false teachers are so eager to win your favor, but their intentions are not good. They are trying to shut you off from me so that you will pay attention only to them. If someone is eager to do good things for you, that's all right; but let them do it all the time, not just when I'm with you." Galatians 4:17-18 NLT
I'm so thankful for the Holy Spirit! He leads us in the right direction. When we stay in relationship with the Holy Spirit we aren't easily deceived by the false teachers who only want us for their benefit. When we do good things we need to be doing them out of our 0response to Jesus' love for us, not just because certain people are around. That is not who Jesus was and that is not who we are called to be. We are to be like Jesus and do greater works than him and we can't do that when we are trying to use people for our benefit instead of valuing who they are.
James 3:13 says, “If you are wise and understand God's ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.” You are wise and you understand because you have a relationship with God! Out of this relationship you know the Father's voice and you will also know when a different (false) voice is speaking. You'll not be led astray by the false teachers because you stay connected to Jesus. Hold tight to him and you will not follow a false voice. Keep doing good out of love for Christ. “So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.” Galatians 6:9
Keep your hearts right, serve only Christ, and your motives will be right in doing good. You can't go wrong when you keep Jesus at the forefront of all that you do. Let your motive always be Christ and your actions will follow. Keep going, you're doing great. Your heart is in the right place! .
Finally we have snow in Helsinki. I'm not a big fan of snow and winter but today the weather was very nice for a long walk (and playing Pokemon Go - it's my other hobby 😁 ). Year ago I stayed in Paris for a whole wintertime. Would love to be there right now. I hope I'll be living in slightly warmer climate than Finland next winter.
Najavili su snijeg pa smo krenuli u bijeg.
Došli smo na špicu i cigići nam izmuzli siću. Šesti je dan dijete, gledam burgere očima punim sjete. Lukša mi po glavi skače, želi jesti kremaste kolače. E pa dragi moj bucko danas nije tvoj dan, kreni odmah u stan jer imam dobar plan. Pojesti ćemo kruške dvije i ljubit se kao nikad prije! #vjexipise 💕☀
