Hark! The Herald Angel Sings

luke 2 13-14

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 2:13-14

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!

 

God’s good will in sending the Messiah brought peace into the world.  The plan of redemption brings glory and praise to God in that He gave His only Son.  Jesus, the Prince of Peace came to reconcile the world to God by His atonement for our sins.  The gift of the Savior is an expression of God’s good will, love and mercy towards all men who will receive it. This Christmas and all year around let the peace of Christ fill your heart with good will toward all men.

Sing to God

Psalm 68 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Psalm 68:4

Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.

 

Sing to your heavenly Father with all your heart.  Give Him all the praise and glory He deserves.  Singing to God as part of your daily worship not only magnifies the Lord it also brings you joy.

Pray for Others

Ephesians 3 16-18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:        Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

 

Like Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus, we need to pray for our friends and family, our enemies, and the world.  We need to pray that they would invite Jesus into their lives so they may experience His infinite love first hand and have a personal relationship with Him.  We also need to pray that they would come to truly know Him, His grace, glory and how much He really loves them.

The Lifter of My Head

 

1 11-24 1 Psalm 3 3.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends.  For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, his goodness, and our blessings He will get us through it.

Hang In There

1 10-10 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Romans 8:18

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

 

It’s not always easy being a Christian in this crazy world and believe me we have it easy compared to what others go through. But even when it seems hard to keep our faith we need to hang in there. Our sufferings are just a moment in time and our glory will be eternal, it will all be worth it when we get to heaven.
