The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in mercy.
Faith in Action: We serve a mighty God who can do anything. Even though we don’t deserve His compassion and goodness, He is merciful and loves us more than we could ever imagine. Praise Him and proclaim His goodness!
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
Faith in Action: Regardless of what you may be facing, God can turn it around. He has been there for you before and He is here for you right now. Trust in the Lord Jehovah not only to give you strength but to be your strength.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Faith in Action: God wants you to run the race He planned and designed specifically for you. Don’t let temptations and obstacles get in your way. Stay focused on the Lord and never give up.
But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.
Faith in Action: God doesn’t want people who are just going through the motions or performing rituals and ceremonies just because that’s what they are supposed to do. He is looking for people who will worship Him with all of their heart and soul because they love Him.
