Live for Jesus

Romans 6 23

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

We were born into a world of sin but because Jesus gave His life to pay for our sins we have been offered the gift of salvation and eternal life.  Thank God for loving us so much that He gave his Only Son so that we could be saved and now because He died for us we should live our lives for Him. How do we live for Jesus?  Jesus said, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. (Mark 12:30).

A Soul on Fire

2 Timothy 1 6

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 1:6

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

 

A soul on fire for Jesus is a heart that has moved from knowing who God is to having a personal relationship with God.  It’s a soul that’s passionate about sharing the Word of God and the love of God with hurting people.  Be sure to keep your flame fanned by using the gifts God has given you to help bring salvation and hope to the lost.

No Other Way

John 14 6

 

Verse of the Day:  John 14:6

Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 

Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for us to be saved from death and be with Him in heaven for all eternity.  There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son.  Not by works, merit or personal sacrifices.  Jesus is the only way, He is our Savior, and there is no other way.

Mercy

Titus 3 5 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Titus 3:5

He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.

 

The dictionary describes mercy as compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm. We are all born sinners with sinful, selfish natures because sin entered the world through Adam and Eve. We deserve the condemnation that came as a result of sin, which is death. But, because of God’s mercy, He sent His only Son to pay the price of sin so that we could be made right. His merciful gift of salvation brought forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Grace

Ephesians 2 8

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 2:8

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith; and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

 

Salvation is a gift graciously given from God because of His great love for us.  You cannot buy it, earn it, work for it or get it based on your own abilities. It is an undeserved gift you can only receive through faith. Through God’s plan to save us, Jesus paid for this gift when He died on the cross for our sins.  Everything you have, everything you are, and everything you do is all because of God’s saving grace.

Loaded with Blessings

Psalm 68 19

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 68:19

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

 

Wake up with praise on our lips, focused on God.  Start your day right and receive the blessings the Lord has in store for you today.  Each new day is loaded with blessings of joy, peace, mercy, grace and salvation!  Glorify your Lord and Savior!

Turn to God for Salvation      

Isaiah 45 22 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 45:22

Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

 

Turn to God and be saved.  You won’t find salvation in idols, in man, not even in yourself.  Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19) God loves you so much He made a way for you to be reconciled with Him when He sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins. Turn to God for salvation before it’s too late.
