THINGS WE WILL NEVER REGRET

"Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain."  
1 Corinthians 15:58



There are many things a child of God never has to regret, feel sorry for or apologize for.  Consider them.

  1. A Christian must never regret or apologize for giving generously to others, for he who helps others will be abundantly blessed. It is a blessing indeed to bless others! (Proverbs 11:25-31; 2 Corinthians 9:9; Acts 20:35). 
  2. Trusting God with all of the heart and soul is one of those things a child of God must never regret, feel sorry or apologize for. There is nothing to fear, not even death itself, when we put our trust in the Lord, for He is our stronghold, the one who sustains us during our troublesome and perilous times. He is our Light, our salvation, and deliverance (Psalm 27). 
  3. Praying to God at all times. God has promised to help us in our frailties and failures when we humbly ask for His help through prayer. Yet too many ignore it. Christians have access to God's throne through His Son, so we must pray without ceasing (James 5:13-18; 1 Thess. 5:18). 
  4. Having an obedient faith that does the will of God in everything, even when others don’t approve, is another thing a Christian must never regret or apologize for. To love God implies that we obey Him completely, for our obedience to God is our expression of love and honor for Him (John 14:15, 21-24; 1 John 5:2). 
  5. Believing, defending, and living the Gospel of Christ. A Christian must never apologize or regret his faith and convictions. He must not conform to this world but be transformed by renewing his mind (Rom. 12:1-2). We Christians must never be ashamed of living the Gospel, for it is the center of our lives and our faith in Christ (Romans 1:16-17; 12:1-2; 2 Tim. 1:8). Therefore, Christians must keep proclaiming and living the Gospel Message faithfully and boldly, for they are God’s riches and power unto salvation for everyone who believes. 
  6. A Christian must never regret or apologize for loving God's Truth that guides him into God’s paths or ways of righteousness. To love the Truth is to continue in the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ and to live by His teachings or doctrines as the only guide in our lives. It is the plumbline that builds the perfect house. So we must never regret being faithful to God's Truth and walking in His Truth (2 John 8; 2 John 10-11). 
  7. Lastly, we must never regret or apologize for being kind and gentle, speaking the Truth in love to others because we love their souls (Ephesians 4:15, 16, 32). Kindness and gentleness are the marks of our faith, for without them, there is no faith. Christ has commanded His children to be kind and tenderhearted to one another and do good to each other. In the newness of life, the new man in Christ shows kindness, goodness, gentleness, and compassion.

Therefore, let us never be ashamed, feel sorry, regret, and apologize for giving abundantly to others.  Let us never be ashamed for trusting in God with all of our heart and soul.  Let us never be ashamed for praying at all times without ceasing.  Let us never be ashamed for obeying God in everything, having an obedient faith.  Let us never be ashamed for teaching, preaching, and defending the Gospel Message.  And finally, let us never be ashamed for being kind and gentle, showing goodness and compassion to others.

May the Lord help us be what He wants us to be and bear good fruit to His glory.
