Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 121

Live Peaceably With All Men

Romans 12:18

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Some things in life you just can’t change. You may want to, but you don’t have that ability. No matter how many clouds, the sun still rises in the morning. You can’t change that. You can’t change the number of elements in water; it’s always two hydrogen to one oxygen. You can’t change your past, or your parents, or your birthdate. You can’t change who your siblings are, even though you may want to.

Imagine that: you can allow hatred and hard feelings to make you want to exclude from your life those who should be closest to you. Don’t do it, friend. In Romans 12:18, Paul writes, “If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.” That includes family, my friend.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 20

Body of Christ

Romans 12:5

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Do you realize that if you are in Christ, you are a part of his body? You aren’t simply a member of some club, team, or corporation. You are actually a part of the body of Jesus Christ. Your life is all about what Jesus is about on this Earth living out his desires and accomplishing his purposes. It’s not about an organization; rather, it’s about an organism.

The Apostle Paul expressed it like this: “So we, being many, are one body in Christ; and every one, members of one another.” (Romans 12:5). Even with all its’ frailties and failings, I hope you are enjoying the blessing of being a part of the body of Christ, my friend.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 18

Using The Word to Transform The World

Romans 12:2

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

“Be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2). It amazes me how the church wants to be like the world. Maybe it’s because we aren’t allowing the Word to transform our mind. It is imperative to spend time in God’s word personally, daily. That way, we will gain God’s perspective on life. Perhaps then, we can transform the world like the early disciples did. My friend – allow the Word of God to transform your mind as you spend time in it. And then, go and transform your part of the world.
