Faith

Hebrews 11 1 2

 Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 11:1

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

Faith is believing in and completely trusting in the one true God, His Word and His promises. It is the foundation and firm belief in the power, faithfulness and love of God. It is the core belief of what we hope for even though we cannot see it now we know it is to come. Faith lives in the heart and mind of every believer and even though they cannot see God with their physical eyes they still believe and see Him with their spiritual eyes. Faith is what helps us get through life knowing that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and that by the power of the resurrection, someday we are assured and expect to be in heaven with God for all eternity.

The Burial of Jesus and The Guard at the Tomb

Matthew 27 57-66

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 27:57-66

The Burial of Jesus

57 As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. 58 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. 59 Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. 61 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there opposite the tomb.

The Guard at the Tomb

62 The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. 63 “Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ 64 So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.” 65 “Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.

Knowing Christ

Philippians 3 10.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 3:10

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death

 

There is a difference in knowing about someone and knowing someone and there is a difference between knowing what someone does and knowing who someone is. You may have known about Jesus all your life but until you seek Him with all of your heart you won’t really know Him as your personal Savior. You won’t have a personal relationship with Him until you start spending time with Him.  The more time you spend with Him the more you will become like Him.  You have a friend in Jesus, start getting to really know Him.
