Verse of the Week #19 (Psalm 106:3)

Hey guys I'm back with another verse of the week. This time I picked a verse from the Psalms.

"Blessed are those who keep justice,
And he who does righteousness at all times!" -Psalm 106:3 (NKJV)

If you get discouraged in your walk...remember that you are blessed for living in a Godly way.

Verse of the Week #18 (Matthew 5:44)

I picked this verse because my girlfriend inspired me to. This verse is so convicting and really leads me to be a better Christian...

"But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you" -Matthew 5:44 (NKJV)

Live by this.

Update + Video of the Week #13 (Freerunning)

Well everyone, if you were wondering why I haven't made any posts recently it's because I just got back from the beach. I went there just to stare at the sun with sand in my pants and spend some time with the people I love. I am happy to tell you that I am back and have spent the day watching videos on youtube and packing...the slight downside to the packing is that I am leaving tomorrow morning for the windy city (Chicago...) Real early.

So I am sorry to tell you that I will not be making more blog posts till around sunday-monday. I hope I don't disappoint you guys too much.

But I will tell you this, I have a surprise change coming rather soon to my blog as well as a new youtube channel coming out. So you guys have some good things coming your way!

So as my parting gift for this week I'll leave you with my deliberately hand picked video of the week. Enjoy.

Over the past couple months I have grown interested in parkour and freerunning, this video is a great example of how sick they can be. I'll keep you updated in the future on what's going on!

Verse of the Week #17 (1 Thessalonians 4:1)

Hey everyone, today's verse of the week comes from Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians. This passage speaks to the christians in Thessolonica regarding their spiritual walk. 

"Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God." -I Thessalonians 4:1 (NKJV)

This verse stuck out to me mainly because of the phraseology used: " please God." These specific words emphasized in my mind the fact that we out to have the heart's desire to love God and please him, rather than follow a set of the rules primarily for the rewards and lack of punishment. Our heart's desire ought to be to please God in our deeds, rather than just conforming to a set of rules out self service/preservation. This verse should cause all of us to really desire to please God.
