Bible Challenge (Hebrews 13:5)

"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." - Hebrews 13:5

No matter where I am in life, there will always be someone who "has it better", be it position in life, possessions, or people. Will I determine to focus on Christ, and rest content and willing to be "filled with all the fulness of God"? (Ephesians 3:19)

- Job 17:9

How clean are my hands?

Bible Challenge (Job 13:15a)

"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him:" - Job 13:15a

"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." - Psalm 119:11

Bible Challenge (1 John 2:6)

"He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked." - 1 John 2:6

I profess to abide in Christ, and I may be walking like a Christian walks, but am I walking how CHRIST walked? It isn't enough to be as others are, but to pursue Christ as He is.

Bible Challenge (Job 1:20-22)

"Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the found, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly." - Job 1:20-22

I am ready and willing to bless the Lord when He blesses me with good things, but am I just as willing to bless Him when He takes things away?

Bible Challenge (2 Corinthians 5:21)

"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." 
- 2 Corinthians 5:21

He covered Himself with our sins so He might cover me with His righteousness. What a humbling thought! How unworthy I am! May I not taint His righteousness with my own!
