What a friend we have in Jesus…
We would like to share one of our favorite verses with you today.
Jeremiah 29 11-14 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,”
Remember if you are having struggles in your life, Jesus CAN change your situation. Seek Him and you will find Him. He has a plan for your life today!
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”
Who are you when no one is looking? How do you behave when no one around you knows your name or will likely ever see you again? When you travel, do you act differently than when you’re at home? When you’re on vacation, is there a different attitude toward other people than when you’re going through a normal day?
We’re often encouraged by other people and by our society at large to present one face in public and another behind closed doors. However, God desires us to live with purity, integrity, and honesty—the same whether we’re at home, at work, at church, or on vacation. It’s not only our own reputation that’s at stake; it’s the witness we bear to who Christ is in our lives. When others see us changing our behavior according to where we are, they assume that our faith is only a role, a temporary part of our crowded lives.
Today, be a worthy ambassador of Jesus, sharing your authentic faith with everyone around you, no matter the context.

Pray: “God, I confess that sometimes I act differently depending on where I am and who’s around. Help me to represent your Son with truth, grace, and integrity.”
