Man Verse

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Just so you know, I continually fight the temptation to give these blogs a cool and catchy title. Occasionally I am tempted to rip off a title from some obscure Fallout Boy Song, but I am always scared some of you might think I was being serious. 

Anyways, I want to share a short verse that has been challenging me all week. The verse is simple, yet unbelievably challenging. It is the type of verse some guy would get tattooed between his shoulder blades because he likes the way it sounds–but when push comes to shove it is a tough verse to live out.

“Therefore dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

I love the war language.

Stand firm. No matter what the enemy is throwing your way, how tough life has been, the temptations that are knocking on your door, old habits seeping back in, etc…stand firm.

Let nothing move you. Does this define the way you respond to sin, fear, doubt, or temptation? 

Give yourself fully to the work of the Lord. I am great at giving part of my life, my work, my thoughts, and my dreams to God, but it is so difficult to give myself fully to his work. 

I love that verse. So challenging. Good night.
