1 John 4:1 – Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

Don't Believe Everything You Hear

Christians must take many things on faith, but it’s important not to believe everything we hear. A little skepticism can protect us from false prophets.

God gives us so many blessings, it’s easy to go a little too far. While enjoying these blessings is not a sin, the Bible teaches us we need self control.

1 Corinthians 10:13 - Temptation

Every day, Satan tempts us with the sins of the world, making them seem irresistible. When this happens to you, pray for strength to fight his temptations.

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

Amos: The vet made my master put me on a diet.
Nim: How's that going?
Amos: I realized that being on a diet is a lot like our journey as Christians. Every morning, we have to wake up and make a decision to be faithful or not.
Nim: Yeah, but at least with a diet, you don't have the devil whispering in your ear to be bad.
Amos: I don't know. I've always thought the devil might come dressed as a cupcake.

Just like in dieting, we must remain resolute in our Christian walk.

1 John 4:18 – Fear & Godless Thunder

Fear - Godless Thunder

1 John 4:18 is one of the 365 times that we’re told in the Bible we should have no fear. God can help you get over any fear you have, just ask Him for help.
