Verse of the Day: Acts 4:13
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
You don’t have to be an eloquent speaker to have the courage to tell people about Jesus. All you need is the willingness to share your own story. Just tell others what God’s love, goodness, grace and mercy has done in your life.
Verse of the Day: Hebrews 12:3
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Everything Jesus went through for us is an example so that we too can continue what we have been called to do. What we go through now is nothing compared to the glory God will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18) Your hardest times will often lead to the greatest moments in your life. Be strong in your faith and don’t lose heart. It will all be worth it in the end.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 45:22
Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.
Turn to God and be saved. You won’t find salvation in idols, in man, not even in yourself. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19) God loves you so much He made a way for you to be reconciled with Him when He sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins. Turn to God for salvation before it’s too late.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 14:1
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Today is April Fools’ day, a day in which people play practical jokes and spread hoaxes. It’s all about fun and games. However, the Bible says only a fool would deny the existence of God. Where you will spend eternity is no joking matter. Matthew 25:46 says: And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. Don’t be fooled into thinking there is no God, seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
Verse of the Day: 1 John 4:16
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
If your first thought of the day is “God loves me” it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day. No matter what happens tell yourself, “It’s going to be okay, God loves me”. You can rely on God’s love for you and His strength will get you through the most difficult days if only you would trust in His love for you.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:9
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others. We serve a compassionate God and when we give ourselves to Him, He creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more. Be generous to those in need and do everything in love. Remember, we can never out give God.
Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 16:14
Do everything in love.
Because of God’s love for you and your love for Him everything you do should be done with love. From the simplest of things to the greatest, do it all with the love of God in your heart. Let God’s love shine through you so that others may see His love for all humanity.
