Father, such love You've shown us! Thank You for giving us the One who is able to save us from our sinful ways.
May we consider the great sacrifice You've made for our sins; Christ's life among us as a man, His dedication to Your cause to save us, and His sacrificial death.
His being raised from the dead is his how Your Life is made available for us. Thank You for enabling Jesus to offer this great gift! We only knew darkness and hopelessness before He came.
We can now know that Jesus has made a way for us to have our sins washed away and to be holy in the Father's sight.
May we not be ashamed of what He has done, and may we be bold in sharing it with others in whatever way You direct each of us.
I pray in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Today’s Bible verse:Matt. 12:18KJV "Behold, my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles."
Today’s quote:David Roper - "Perhaps you feel as though your life has become a dump—a mess beyond hope. If so, you need to know that there is someone who lives you and waits to redeem and reclaim you. Give Jesus your heart and ask Him to make you pure and clean. He may tumble you a bit, and it may take time to smooth away the rough edges. But He will never give up on you. He will make you into one of His jewels! (ODB 12/2/15)
Some thoughts today: The main issue is sin in our lives. The solution is Jesus. Ask Him to come and help clean up your life.
~ There's no other one to rescue us from our sin, and no other way back to God, except through the Atonement made by Christ at the cross some 2,000 years ago. (see Acts 4:12)
~ When you're enjoying the beauty of creation, keep in mind that the Creator made it all for you to enjoy. Give Him praise. He well deserves it!

A popular post:A Special Kind of Seeing Richard Bastille shares with us, "Men speak of seeing through an issue, and mean by the term that they perceive the holes in logic, or truth in the array of facts that are presented, or even that they perceive the selfish motivations that have prompted a speaker.
The fabric of the thing that faces them is shabby, or torn, or badly put together, and men see through it by perceiving its inadequacies..."
