More than Conquerors

Romans 8 37 2

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Romans 8:35 poses the question: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? The answer my found in Romans 8:37-39. We are to have confidence in knowing that no tribulation, suffering, persecution, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.  His love is not earned so it cannot be lost, it is undeserved and limitless. We are not just conquerors over sin and despair, we are more than conquerors in all things through Jesus Christ because even when we go through these things our faith is made stronger. We have the victory through the blood of the Lamb.

Jesus Christ is Lord!

Matthew 10 32

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 10:32

Therefore, everyone who acknowledges me before people, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven.

Atheism is on the rise around the world, the new generations aren’t going to church like they used to. To those who don’t know the Lord, Christianity has become uncool and old-fashioned. But the truth is, the world needs Jesus more than ever. It’s time for us to have the courage and confidence to privately and publicly stand up for what we believe in, Jesus Christ! Let the world know it’s not enough to believe in Jesus with our heart, we must also confess with our mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord. He is the way, the truth and the life!

Mercy for Today

Psalm 103 10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 103:10

He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.

Mercy is when God gives us love, compassion and forgiveness instead of giving us the punishment we deserve for our sins. God’s mercy for His people is demonstrated throughout the Bible but God’s mercy is entirely displayed through Jesus who paid the price for our sins so that we might be reconciled to God. We deserved the punishment of death for our sins but God, who loves us more than we could ever imagine, sent His only Son to save us. God’s mercy doesn’t end at the cross, it’s available to us whenever we are in need. Come confidently to the throne, make your requests known to the Lord and receive mercy for today.

Teaching Children About God

Proverbs 22 6

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

One of the most important things we can ever do is to teach children how much God loves them. Knowing they are loved by God, the Creator, Himself will give them confidence to shine. It’s our responsibility to teach our children the ways of the Lord, to teach them what it means to be a child of God and to pray for and with them. It’s up to us to give them a strong foundation on which they can rely. Let’s be examples for the children in our lives and teach them what it is to know and love God and what it is to be loved by Him. If we don’t teach them to follow Christ the world will teach them not to.
