Verse of the Day: Romans 6:13
Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.
If you have been born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. Because you have been set free you can now offer yourself to God, both body and soul, as an instrument of faith, joy, hope, peace and love to be used for His purpose.

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!

It is confirmed daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in your life. God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable everlasting and nothing can separate us from His love for us.

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Faith is what helps us get through life knowing that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and by the power of the resurrection someday we will be in heaven with God for all eternity.

During the deepest trials our faith in God’s love and mercy continues to bring us comfort. Our hope and confidence in God lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever. Even if we are faithless, God remains faithful.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 145:9
The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. There is not a single person God is not ready and willing to bless; not a single person who God does not want to see happy and not a single sinner God would not show mercy to. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.
