The Peace of Christ Rules!

TNIV Scripture for Friday, August 1, 2008 [Colossians 3:15-17]

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Living the Christian life is impossible for you, but you and Christ together can be a dynamic duo. Ask Him to take your wrong thinking and to fill you with His wisdom, peace, ability and joy instead! He loves to answer that prayer!!
