To Seek and to Save

Luke 19 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

Because of the actions of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden sin entered the world and separated us from God. But God loved us so much He made a way for us to be saved. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to this world to seek and to save the lost, to offer us the free gift of salvation. He rescued us from a life of sin, from the guilt of sin and from the power of sin when He paid the ultimate price and gave His life for our sin on Calvary so our relationship with God could be restored. So then, what shall we do to receive this gift? Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:28) As followers of Christ, we need to share this Good News with the world while there is still time.

A Friend in Jesus

I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

How awesome to have a friend in Jesus.  He knows you, He cares about you and He loves you more than you will ever know.  He always has your best interest at heart and He’ll never turn his back on you. He’ll never leave you, He’s always there for you and you can always count on Him.  He wants to spend time with you so you will never feel alone.  You can tell Him anything and you can believe that He will never betray your trust.  There is no friend like Jesus, He’s the best friend you’ll ever have.

Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks!

Verse of the Day:  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.

 

We don’t always need to change our circumstances sometimes we just need to change the way we see them.   No matter what you are going through keep rejoicing in the Lord, keep praying and keep giving thanks to God.  Don’t give up on God because He’ll never give up on you.

Celebrate Freedom!

2 Corinthians 3 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

 

As a nation, we are grateful for the freedom we have in this country and for many it’s a tradition to celebrate that freedom.  As believers in Jesus Christ, we have been set free from sin and when God is present in our lives we are free to believe, trust and love the Lord with all our heart so we can enjoy this life He has given us. Celebrate the true freedom that comes from knowing and having a relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ!

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:11

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

 

As born again believers, you have the same spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead living inside of you. The grave could not hold Jesus, He was resurrected to be seated at the right hand of God.  You have the same victory in Jesus!
