Because of Hurricane Harvey, I wasn’t planning on going to service today because I wasn’t sure how the roads would be, and I didn’t want to drive in potentially flooding roads. Turns out, FBCC was going to live stream service, so I decided to do that instead. Unfortunately, when I went to the website, it said that service was cancelled altogether, so I decided to just have a really long devotional and these were some of the verses that I read this morning (:
“But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6:11-12
“But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14, 16-17
“But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.”
2 Thessalonians 3:3, 5
