All around us people are standing up for what they believe in. They’re rallying and marching for political parties, rights, you name it and there’s a march for it.

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.

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.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 51:2 (NLT)
Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin.
There isn’t anything you can do to earn God’s forgiveness. You are forgiven because of who God is not who you are. God sent His only Son to pay the price for your sins. You need to confess that you are a sinner who needs a Savior and believe that Jesus died to save you. You can let go of the guilt you’ve been carrying because God has forgiven you and now it’s time to forgive yourself.
Verse of the Day: John 17:3
And this is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
Do you know the Lord? Knowing who He is, is not enough. Our goal in life should be to know Christ by having a deep and personal relationship with Him. We need to make this our priority if we want to spend eternity in the presence of the Lord.
