Last night while I was at the Third Day concert at the Chattanooga Riverbend Festival, the conversation of some of the folks I was with turned to how advanced port-a-potties are these days. That’s right! The comments where even a little uplifting as they discussed how much better those smelly contraption are then the places they may get to utilize on some of the summer mission trips they will be leading over the next few weeks. So for some reason that was stuck in my mind this morning, and I was sitting here thinking how much I love the Johns.
No, not the port-o-let version, the Johns – John, 1 2 and 3 John. I actually remembered last nights conversation while I was reading a little bit of 1 John this morning looking for some motivation and realizing that I don’t have the same energy that I used to have. Getting starting this morning after a “school night” concert is proving to be a little more to overcome than I anticipated. But anyway, back to the John, well, back to 1 John.
5Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:5
I found this to be motivational today. Realizing that the victory that overcomes the world is simply our faith! When its boiled down to that it becomes so simple, and yet so motivating.
So, I apologize for the bathroom humor today, I think I am still stuck on Man Day! However, I hope you can look past that, and find motivation to tackle the day from the awareness of the victory that lies before you! Also take a look at the whole of 1 John 4 and 5 and see where the leads you today!
57But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:57
