Thought for the Day - Thursday

Each morning this week, Graham Nicholls, our Director, is offering the Thought for the Day on Premier Christian Radio and Premier Praise. You can hear the Thought for the Day around 7.20am on Premier Christian Radio and 7.40am on Premier Praise.

Here is the text of what Graham shared this morning:

Ephesians is a letter to Christians who have been chosen, loved, adopted and given new life by God the Father, by connecting us with Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

People who have been brought into God’s family live together in unity.

In chapter 4, verse 31, Paul says: “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice."

It sounds pretty bad, almost like the average city centre on a Friday night. Surely the church is not like that? Well, maybe there’s not actual street fights but we if we allow bitterness to fester in our hearts we will eventually lash out at people with our words and actions, We can do others down with our words. We can gossip about them, telling their secrets, broadcasting their bad news behind their backs with our hard hearts driving us on.

Rather, we need to get rid of those destructive attributes and be kind, compassionate and forgiving, just as through the word of Christ, God forgives us.
