If I’m going to catch anything, I’d rather catch courage than the flu.
Need an example of this? Think of David and Goliath. 1 Samuel 17:50-52 says, “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him…. When the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled. And the men of Israel and Judah rose with a shout and pursued the Philistines…” This was a big change from verse 11. Goliath would confront the Israelites and when “Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.” Courage is Contagious.
How will you be courageous today?

God is faithful to do what He says He will do. – 1 Thessalonians 5:24
My favorite promise is from Romans 8:28 which says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” This promise gets me through those tough days when nothing seems to go right.

What joy for those who can live in your house, always singing your praises. – Psalm 84:4
There’s no better place to be on Sunday, or any day for that matter, than in God’s house, singing and giving God worship with fellow believers. May God bless you this day and you lift your voices and lives to Him.
Many times we use Heaven to get people to accept Jesus. And, yes, Heaven is a reward for following Jesus, but the Bible also says we should count the cost to follow Him before making this decision. Luke 14:28-30 says, “For which of you, wanting to build a tower, doesn’t first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, after he has laid the foundation and cannot finish it, all the onlookers will begin to make fun of him, saying, ‘This man started to build and wasn’t able to finish.”
Living for Jesus is not always easy. Yes, there are so many blessings that come with surrendering your life to Christ, but many Christians become the seeds that fell on rocky ground, where there wasn’t much soil, and they sprang up quickly since the soil wasn’t deep. But when the sun came up they were scorched, and since they had no root, they withered (Matthew 13:5-6, 20-21). The cost was to high for these seeds or people. They were enjoying the benefits of a Christian life, but not the sacrifices and persecution.
That is why we must count the cost and seek the Giver and not the gift. If we seek the Giver, we are promised that everything else will be taken care of (Matthew 6:33).

But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; (1 Peter 2:9)
Do you remember what the darkness felt like?
Do you remember what it felt like to step into His wonderful light?
It’s good to remember these things every once in a while so that you never forget or get pulled back into the darkness.

“You know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58
I’m a do-er, which means I tend to do before I pray. I get most of a project done or most of an event planned and then think “Oh, I should have sought God before I got this far. Or even before I began.” I am working on praying first and doing second. Actually, I’m working on praying first and then praying while working. I am definitely a work in progress.
