Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 6:2
For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
Jesus came to save the world at the right time, a time that was preordained by God. When Jesus was in the garden at Gethsemane and cried out to God the Father and when He was on the cross crying out, God heard Him and answered His prayers. God’s will was done and on the third day Jesus was delivered from death and rose from the grave. God sent His only Son to pay the price for ours sins and to make a way for us to be saved. From that day to the second coming of Christ is the time for salvation. That means we are currently living in the day of salvation. NOW is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed His call, today is the right time to be saved. Jesus is coming soon. Don’t put off your salvation until it’s too late.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 12:2
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
With all the uncertainty in the world around us we can remain unafraid because our trust is in God our Savior. We can face anything because God is our strength and our salvation. I don’t know who needs to hear this today but I’m here to remind you that God loves you and it doesn’t matter who is against you because God is for you. No matter what you’re facing God can turn it around. He has been there for you in the past, He is there for you now and He will always be there for you in the future. Trust in the Lord Jehovah not only to give you strength but to be your strength, your song, and your salvation.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
