ACTS 23: PLEASING GOD

Good evening, girls! Hope your day has been good so far.


Today I am looking at the verse 1 as it spoke clearly to me.
"I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day".
As a Christian, I do spend my life trying to serve the LORD and doing what is right at all times but I know that so often, I let the LORD down. I sometimes act rashly in situations without thinking, I maybe say something I shouldn't have, I have a wrong attitude about certain things. I know I could honestly say "I have tried to live in all good conscience before God until this day" but I couldn't say with Paul that "I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day". Of course, this doesn't mean that, because I have failed, I should give up trying. I need to keep aiming to be the best I can be for God and with His help and grace.

Also, my aim is to please GOD and to live right before Him first and foremost, not before men. However, it goes without saying that if I live right before God, then I am also living right before men.

Being a Christian isn't always easy and there are people who will criticise us for what we do and say but as long as we know in our heart of hearts that we are living according to what the Bible teaches, then that is what matters. We need to be able to base everything we say, do and think on the Scriptures and have a godly reason for it.

I pray that the Lord will help you and me this week to put Him first and live well before Him.

Hugs, Karen x

ACTS 21 - 28 AND THEN "FAREWELL"

Good evening, girls!

For the next 8 days, except for weekends, we'll be looking at the final chapters of Acts. I've decided that, after we finish Acts, I'll bring the blog to an end. I have been talking to various ladies who follow the blog and it seems that they seem happy to go along at their own pace. I'm glad that by now you have found your own footing and have established your own Bible Study routine! This is wonderful! That's what this blog was all about; giving you the groundwork to get into God's Word regularly. I hope that you will continue to read God's Word AND study it to gain the treasures that He has in store for you there. Of course you can still follow along with Courtney over at Women Living Well.


Have a good week, walking with the Lord!
