james 1 12

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:12

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

 

There will be trials, there will be tough times, but God is with you and if you don’t give up you will be blessed.  Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end.

Future Hope

proverbs 23 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 23:18

There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

 

As followers of Christ we have the hope for a future not only here on earth but in heaven and for all eternity. Our hope is not anchored in things that are temporary but in God who is the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come. (Revelation 1:8) Our hope is in the Lord because He is our help and our shield and we can rely on His promises and plans for today, for tomorrow and for the future.

Keep God First

Colossians 3 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:2

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

 

This is the time of year when we start thinking about New Year’s resolutions.  We decide to make changes and declare goals that will improve our lives.  The Bible tells us we should set our minds on things above and that our thoughts and goals should be focused on Christ and our future home, heaven.  As we contemplate our New Year’s resolutions let’s be mindful to include goals that allow us to put God first in our lives.

Hang In There

Romans 8 18.jpg

 

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 good Christian in this crazy world. 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.

Helping God’s People

Hebrews 6 10

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:10

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

 

The Lord blesses you so that you can be a blessing to others.  Whether you give monetarily, provide goods and services or donate your time He sees all that you do and never forgets the work you do or the love you show by helping His people and when you get to heaven you will receive your eternal reward.

No Other Way

John 14 6

 

Verse of the Day: John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 

Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for us to be saved from death and be with Him in heaven for all eternity.  There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son.  Not by works, merit or personal sacrifices.  Jesus is the only way, He is our Savior, and there is no other way.
