2012 January 28 - Morning Manna

Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. (Hebrews 13:1-8)
Today's Morsel: Consistency is being able to maintain a particular standard without wavering. James said "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways" (James 1:2-8). We are called to be consistent in our walk with the Lord. When others see that consistency, they will know that we are men and women of truth. When we are consistent in our faith, our conversation, our charity, our patience, our temperance, and our purity, it will be revealed to others. Jesus said, "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth" (Luke 18:8)? Are you going to be consistent in your faith when He comes? Now is not the time for wavering, because our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. Stay consistent and everything else will be easy to accomplish. Even making it to heaven.
Sing: I'm going through, yes, I'm going through, I'll pay the price, no matter what others do; I'll take the way with the Lord's despised few; I started out with Jesus, and I'm going through.
