Matthew: It goes back spiritual evaluation—We need to examine ourselves! “You will know them by their fruit.” What do our actions say? Are we allowing the Spirit to lead? What do our fruit say about our walk with Jesus Christ? Are we following the Lord’s commandments? What do we need to repent of? Bring it before Him NOW. Do not wait!

Acts: Many Gentiles came to know Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit was poured out onto them, and the Good News of Jesus was shared! This man, Cornelius, gathered his close friends and family to hear the Gospel of Christ. They were all waiting—to hear the Gospel. Do we have anyone waiting? Who do we need to witness to? Pray for?

Genesis: Joseph—is successful, because he stayed committed to following God. Joseph followed God no matter what the cost! While he stayed focused on being obedient to God and giving his best, others sought to destroy him and to lead him off the path of being obedient to God. He was tempted. Not only was he tempted, but a story was made up about him—which could have ruined his reputation. He was a man who followed God, but his boss’ wife called him a rapist when he was not one. He pursued integrity and godly living–and purity! He was lied about, thrown in prison, and forgotten. Hard place to be, but God would use it for His great glory! Joseph would be rewarded for his obedience!
