Why are people wrong? Mk 12:24 Jesus said to them, Is this not the reason you are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God?
Count the way to wisdom, for wisdom is pleasure, and obedience is peace.God is infinite, salvation is simple, and knowledge is easy.

53 Seven Exhortations From Paul

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number fifty-three of this series, Seven Exhortations from Paul.

Have you ever asked yourself how your life could be better? I have heard many say that the Bible is a big book, and it is hard to know everything that a person must do. First, the answer is that we have a big God therefore, a big book. Secondly, it may be a big book, but a Christian walk can be understood without having first read the whole Bible. There are many exhortations encouraging Christians, but these seven would sure make for a blessed life in Christ.

Seven Exhortations from Paul:

  1. Walk in a manner worthy of Christ.
  2. Let no one deceive you with empty words.
  3. Do not let sin reign over you.
  4. Welcome your brothers and sisters in Christ.
  5. Stand firm in your faith.
  6. Encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ.
  7. Respect, esteem highly and love your church leaders, and be at peace with one another.

Start with these seven and remember, Paul is not giving you a burdensome list, Paul is telling you the things that make for a better life not a burdensome life. Paul knew how his life was changed by imitating Christ, and Paul spoke many times of his joy. Paul wanted this same joy and newness in life for each Christian.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Eph 4:1 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called…

Eph 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Ro 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.

Ro 15:7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

Ga 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

1 Th 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

1 Th 5:12 We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 1 Th 5:13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.
