I just finished the journey through the book of James which for me was a good instruction manual for how to apply our faith. Learned in the book of James are great truths we can apply at work or home. The principles learned and applied refine our character.
Lessons found in the book of James provide a path when we listen and follow; lessons like remaining persistent, focusing on the possibilities God gives, and living by the “Golden Rule”. Applying these lessons can change the world. Also, I learned that for any plan or purpose, we should attach the qualification of God’s will.
Spiritual growth requires patience. It is a daily process of growing to be more and more like Christ. Faith along with prayer is needed. Like an antenna to our soul, faith energizes, inspires, and transmits God’s power which lightens our load.
Now as I turn my attention to the study of the book of 1 Chronicles. I will use the questions below to help focus on each passage. Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of these questions. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
1 Chronicles 1-2
Is it important to you to know how God has dealt with your ancestors? Why? What is the connection between God’s concern for a person’s own relationship to him and his concern for family history?

To What extent do you feel a part of history today? Why? How can you remain holy to God in your culture? What is special about the Levites (See Num. 3:5-4:49)
It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us, is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ.
