Many thoughts this morning...
"Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love." - 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 ESV
The KJV says 'quit ye like men'.
It speaks of emulating the best qualities of the men you admire as you stay alert and present in firmness and in strength.
Oh, That is a good thought.
Put away the mirrors. It isn't a time to look at yourself. Look at Jesus and let his character and actions motivate a firmness and watchfulness that results in loving action.
Being all you can be isn't enough. Jesus was, Is and forever will be more than enough.
We have what we need when we are motivated in a vision of who Christ Is.
