Finish Strong: Truths From The Life of King Manasseh

Finishing strong is a truth that the Scripture teach us concerning our Christian life. God who began a good work in us will be faithful to complete and yet the Scripture also tells us that we are to work out our salvation; we’re called to continually repent of sin and look to Jesus in all that we do. King Manasseh is a great example that it’s never too late to finish strong with God, which entails a broken heart over one’s sin and a posture of faith unto God.

Scripture: 2 Chronicles 33; 2 Kings 21

Doing Flows from Being

The Bible commands good behavior BUT good behavior flows from good character (Matthew 7:17). Doing flows from being—keeping this order is very important IF you want to understand the gospel well AND deepen in your love/pursuit of Jesus.

Our affluent society is an afflicted society for lack of love. Just imagine how many marriages would be spared the heartbreak of separation of divorce if there were true love in the hearts of men and women! Think of what comfort and encouragement would brighten the lot of the poor, sick, lonely and sorrowing, if only there were more love in this world. Who can tell what new vitality would stir the church, and draw others into its fellowship, if there were real love among the professed followers of Christ? It is love we need—Christian love.

Affection Breeds Activity

As we abide and understand the love of God poured out in the gospel of Jesus our affections we’ll increase and we’ll exude God’s love.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:5; Romans 12:17; Phillipians 2:4-11; Proverbs 25:28
