Jesus is the Greatest Gift

John 3 16.jpg

Verse of the Day:  John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God loved each one of us so much He gave the greatest gift ever, His only Son, Jesus Christ. God gave us His Son and the Son gave His life for us. This was all part of the plan of salvation so we could receive forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life. Because of God’s grace and mercy, the gift of salvation is available to all through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Walk in Love

Ephesians 5 2

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 5:2

And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

Live a life of love by following the example of Jesus Christ. He loved us so much He gave all He had so we could be saved. Be imitators of Christ and let everything you do come from a place of love. To walk in love is not just to talk about it but to actually apply it to your daily life. We can never love as much as God loves us but we can try our best to be patient, kind and selfless. We can give our time and be of service to others for the glory of God. As we walk through our days in love, may our continued praises and thanksgiving be an offering and a sweet aroma to the Lord.

God’s Love Endures Forever

Psalm 100 5

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:5

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

God loves us and His love is forever not because of anything we have done or anything we will ever do, but because He is good. His lovingkindness for His people will continue forever. His timing is good, His mercy and grace are good, everything He does is good. His truth continues for all generations and He is faithful in keeping His promises. We can always count on Him because He never changes, even when we are faithless, He remains faithful. People may fail you but God never will.

Grace, Compassion and Mercy

Psalm 145 8

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 145:8

The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in mercy.

Where would we be if not for God’s grace, compassion, patience and mercy?  We serve a mighty God who can do anything and although we don’t deserve any of His compassion and goodness, He still loves us. He loves us so much and is so merciful that He sent His only Son to come into the world to redeem sinners by dying on the cross and paying the ultimate price for our sin. Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness; let us praise His name together! (Psalm 34:3)

Share the Love    

1 John 4 11

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:11

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

 

God’s love flows to us and it also needs to flow through us.  When we receive God’s love it will change our heart so much that we feel the need to share it with other people.  We can share God’s love by practicing forgiveness, compassion and by praying for one another. God’s love is meant to be shared so let your light shine everywhere you go.

More than Conquerors

Romans 8 37

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:37

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

 

We may 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, we are more than conquerors, not just in some things but in all things through Jesus Christ!

My Rock

psalm 18 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 18:2

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; in whom I will trust.

 

When we have a personal relationship with God we learn to trust Him in all situations.  We know that no matter what is going on around us we can count on Him to be there for us because we know He loves us and always has our best interest at heart. People may fail you but God never will.
