#Relationship Goals

John 17 3.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  John 17:3

And this is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

 

Do you know the Lord? Knowing who He is, is not enough.  Our goal in life should be to know Christ by having a deep and personal relationship with Him.  We need to make this our priority if we want to spend eternity in the presence of the Lord.

Live for Jesus

Romans 6 23.jpg

 

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. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:29-31).

Christ Died for Us

John 3 16

 

Verse of the Day:  John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

God loved each one of us so much He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ. God gave us His Son, and the Son gave His life for us. This was all part of the plan of salvation so we could receive forgiveness for our sins and the gift of eternal life. Because of God’s grace and mercy, the gift of salvation is available to all through Christ.

O Holy Night

1 12-24 1 John 3 17

 

Verse of the Day:  John 3:17

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 

The star was shining brightly in the city of David on the night the Savior was born. God sent His only Son to offer the grace of the gospel, eternal life and salvation, that the world through him might be saved.  The birth of Christ, the Messiah, was proclaimed by angels to the shepherds who went to Bethlehem and found Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus lying in the manger. On Christmas Eve let’s stop for a moment and reflect on the greatest gift ever given, Jesus Christ our Savior.

The Gift of Eternal Life

 

1 12-11 1 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 through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Spiritual death and separation from God is the price we pay for sin.  But because of God’s love for humanity He sent His only Son to pay the price that set us free. Eternal life is given by the grace of God through faith in Jesus, not by our own efforts or works so that no one will ever be able to boast that he earned or deserved eternal life, it is a free gift of God.

Jesus is the Greatest Gift

Verse of the Day:  John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

God loved each one of us so much He gave the greatest gift ever, His only Son, Jesus Christ. God gave us His Son, and the Son gave His life for us. This was all part of the plan of salvation so we could receive forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life. Because of God’s grace and mercy, the gift of salvation is available to all through Christ.

The Hope of Eternal Life  

1 11-7 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Revelation 21:4

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

 

There is no denying that evil exists in this world.  Some may ask why God allows horrible events to happen.  The truth is we may never have the answer to this question.  What we do know is that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to offer salvation to all. Even though we may suffer in this world, as Christians, we have the hope of eternal life with God.
