Verse of the Day: Luke 5:20
And when he saw their faith, he said, “Man your sins are forgiven you.”
In Luke chapter 5 some men carried a paralyzed man to see Jesus for healing. When they couldn’t reach Him, because of the crowds, they didn’t give up and they went through the roof. When Jesus saw their faith He forgave the man’s sins and his body was healed. Had it not been for the faith of the friends the man may never have been healed. You may know someone who is going through something so difficult it’s beginning to weaken their faith. That’s where your own faith comes in to play. You can be the bridge to God by praying and interceding for your friends and family. You can stand in the gap by letting your faith carry them when they are weak.
Verse of the Day: 1 John 1:9
If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps you from getting closer to God. The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) Even on your best days there may be sin in your life. When you pray, humbly come before the Lord and honestly confess your sins relying on His mercy and forgiveness through the righteousness of Christ. God is merciful and ready to forgive so don’t let unconfessed sin come between you and the Lord.
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.
Verse of the Day: 2 Chronicles 7:14
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.
The lack of morality and having no relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today. How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God and turn from our wicked ways. If we do these things God will hear us, forgive us and heal our land. To change the world, we must first change ourselves.
Verse of the Day: Luke 5:20
And when He saw their faith, he said, “Man your sins are forgiven you.”
You may know someone who is going through something so difficult it’s beginning to weaken their faith in God. That’s where your own faith comes in to play. Did you know that you can be the bridge to God by praying and interceding for your friends and family? You can stand in the gap for your friends and family by letting your faith carry them when they are weak.
Verse of the Day: Titus 3:5
He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renew by the Holy Spirit.
We’re not saved by anything we’ve done, but by what Jesus did when he died on the cross. God mercifully sent his only Son to pay for our sins so that we could be made right with God. He did this because he loves us and now we can face tomorrow.
