Three Steps to a Simple, Joyful Christian Life

I jotted down these three steps after reading Dr. Charles Stanley's September 8, 2014 Peace With Ourselves daily devotion from In Touch magazine. Here's my favorite quote from the devotion: God's"delight or displeasure with your conduct in no way alters either His love for you or your identity as His. The Lord always sees you as His own and as a person of infinite worth...never forget that you are not what you do. You are what you are: a child of God." 

Other than the fact that in September I was focusing on simple living, I'm not sure how I got these three steps from that particular devotion but hope they  inspire some of you.

  1. Love God (Matthew 22: 36-40)

  2. Trust God (Proverbs 3:5-6)

  3. Obey God (1 Samuel 15:22)

Of course, if we truly love God, steps two and three will flow naturally so all we really need is step one.  Love really is the most important thing in this life!

May God bless you and mayHis great love, joy and peace fill your heart so fully that you share it with all those He places in your path!
