TRUE WORSHIP . . . . . Revelation 19:1-10 Praise is the heartfelt response to God by those who love him. The more you get to know God and realize what he has done, the more you will respond with praise. Praise is at the heart of true worship. Let your praise of God flow out of your realization of who he is and how much he loves you.

SEXUAL SIN . . . . . Revelation 2:20 Why is sexual immorality serious? Sex outside marriage always hurts someone. It hurts God because it shows that we prefer to follow our own desires instead of God’s Word. It hurts others because it violates the commitment so necessary to a marriage relationship. It hurts us because it often brings disease to our body and harms our personality. Sexual sin has tremendous power to destroy families, communities, and even nations because it destroys the relationships upon which these institutions are built. God wants to protect us from hurting ourselves and others, so we should have no part in sexual immorality, even if our society says it’s all right.

ASK E. JEAN
? How can I find my passion? I'm so stressed about finding the right road, the only thing I'm sure is that I'm not where I should be.
! Here's the way: Run down as many paths--straight, winding, high, wide, narrow--as you can. Get going, my girl! Run! Fly! Try them all! Take them all! One day, you'll look down and see that your path is following you.

A TEST . . . . . 1 John 4:20-21 It is easy to say we love God when it doesn’t cost us anything more than weekly attendance at a religious service. But the real test of our love for God is how we treat the people right in front of us—our family members and fellow believers. We cannot truly love God while neglecting to love those who are created in his image.

CUT DOWN . . . . . 1 Peter 3:9 in our sinful world, it is acceptable to tear people down verbally or to get back at them if we feel hurt. Remembering Jesus’ teaching to turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:39), Peter encourages his readers to pay back wrongs by praying for the offenders. In God’s kingdom, revenge is unacceptable behavior. So is insulting a person, no matter how indirectly it is done. Rise above getting back at those who hurt you. Instead, pray for them.

SAY WHAT . . . . . James 3:2-3 What you say and what you don’t say are both important. Proper speech is not only saying the right words at the right time, but also controlling your desire to say what you shouldn’t. Examples of wrongly using the tongue include gossiping, putting others down, bragging, manipulating, false teaching, exaggerating, complaining, flattering, and lying. Before you speak, ask, “is it true, is it necessary, and is it kind?”

BE THERE . . . . . Hebrews 10:25 To neglect Christian meetings is to give up the encouragement and help of other Christians. We gather together to share our faith and strengthen each other in the Lord. As we get closer to the time of Christ’s return, we may face many spiritual struggles, tribulations, and even persecution. Anti-Christian forces will grow in strength. Difficulties should never be excuses for missing church services. Rather, as difficulties arise, we should make an even greater effort to be faithful in attendance.

FORGIVEN . . . . . Philemon 10, 16 Paul asked Philemon not only to forgive his runaway slave who had become a Christian, but to accept him as a brother. As Christians, we should forgive as we have been forgiven (Matthew 6:12; Ephesians 4:31-32). True forgiveness means that we treat the person we’ve forgiven as we would want to be treated. Is there someone you say you have forgiven, but who still needs your kindness?
