Devotional for Dieters, with Dan Dick

Friday, July 03, 2015

Matthew 10:22
'And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.'




Christ has a powerful lesson for those who choose to diet. Dieting makes us different, and it is never easy to be different. Being Christians made the disciples different, and they had to suffer many things for their difference. People who are different are often excluded by others. Sometimes they are even abused and persecuted for their differences. There was only one reason the disciples were able to persevere in their faith, and that was the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. That same Spirit can give us the power to be different and the strength to persevere, even through a tough diet.

Today's thought: Christ helps those who choose to be different!

    As the world turns away from Christianity our differences will be more and more pronounced. This will become a refining fire and will strengthen our walk or show us where were really walking! Be strong in the Lord, rest in his word, fight the good fight!
