9. No Strings Attached
Verse Of The Day: May 9
2 Corinthians 7:1 NLT
“Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.”
Have you ever tried to give somebody something or do something nice for someone and they said to you "what's the catch?" People in this world are skeptical when you do something nice with nothing needed in return. No strings attached. Just being nice out of the goodness of your heart.
It is very difficult to find the kind of friends that love and serve you with no expectation in return. Such a friend should be cherished and protected.
The bible is full of promises that God wants you to live by and experience in your everyday life. Some people are skeptical that God would want your life to be healthy and whole just because He loves you. But that's the point, God loves you.
After being a christian for a little while you begin to realise that the puppet strings are not God trying to control you but the society around us trying to control you.
God wants to lead you into a whole life where you do things that please Him - this is holy living. If anything, God is trying to cut the strings that society has tied you up with so that you can have no strings attached.
What parts of my life or lifestyle do I need God to help free me from?
God, thank you for all your promises that lead me in a new living way. Please cut away the strings that are attached to my life from my past and my wrong choices. Help me live a life that pleases You. Amen.
