“There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42 (NLT) The heart of this ministry is to inspire a love for God’s Word and encourage the discipline of daily Bible reading and SOAP journaling. These are a few of our SOAP notes from today’s reading. We encourage you to read and journal on your own first, then join us in conversation about what God revealed to YOU today.

Choose Integrity | Kim Chipman
S~ Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? Romans 6:16 (ESV)
O~ Free will is real. We have choices. Once we believe in Jesus we can’t lose our salvation, BUT as discussed in v 20-23 there is fruit from what we choose. Fruit of sanctification and life or fruit of shame and death. The choice is mine.
A~ Each day brings so many choices. What will I think about? What will my focus be? Today I can choose life or death. There are things that I know aren’t the BEST choices.
BEST is my word for this year. Focus on choosing what is BEST. Best thoughts, best use of my time, best words, best. Not just good because I’ve seen in my life how good becomes the enemy of best. It’s easy to settle.
“You are slaves of the one whom you obey”
Who am I choosing to obey? YOU, or my fleshly desires? Am I choosing Your BEST or what is fast, fun, or easy? Comfort? Pleasure? or BEST? Reminds me of a Brene Brown quote:
P~ Lord, help me to choose well today. Help me to choose thoughts that honor You and build up others. Help me to choose to be a slave to obedience which leads to righteousness. Help me to choose integrity. I love You!
