Love and Good Deeds

Hebrews 10 24.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Let your love for God and your gratitude for His mercy and goodness inspire you to share His love with others.  Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father may be glorified.  We need to do something, help somebody, invite someone because if we don’t then who will?

Gifts from Above

James 1 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

 

God is good and every gift from Him is good and perfect. Think about all the good in your life, your job, your home, your family, it’s all a gift from God.  Think about the spiritual gifts you’ve been given; they too are a gift from God. Now think about the greatest gift of all, the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, it all comes from our heavenly Father.  As we go through this holiday season let’s not forget what it’s really about and remember to be grateful for all the gifts from our Father above.

Good Gifts from Your Heavenly Father

Matthew 7 11

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 7:11

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. (NLT)

 

Doesn’t it make you feel wonderful to know you have given your children what they’ve asked for on their Christmas list? Now, think about how much more your heavenly Father also wants to give you good gifts. God loves you and it makes Him happy to bless you with the desires of your heart. God already knows what you need before you ask, if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer according to His will.

You Are Royalty

1 Peter 2 9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

 

You have been chosen by God to be royalty.  You may not have been born on this earth as royalty but because you belong to our heavenly Father, you are the daughter of the King!  You are God’s special possession and of great worth. Praise God for choosing to have a special relationship with you.

Stand Up for Jesus!     

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.

 

Everyone is standing up for what they believe in.  They’re rallying and marching for political parties, rights, you name it there’s a march for it.  It’s time we have the courage and confidence to stand up for what we believe in, Jesus Christ!  He is the way, the truth and the life!
