The Light of the World

1 john 8 12

 

Verse of the Day:  John 8:12

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

 

Everyone is going crazy over this solar eclipse but what they really should be focusing on is the real light of the world, Jesus!  If you follow Jesus, you’ll never have to walk in darkness.  Tomorrow the eclipse will be over but the light of life is for eternity!

Intercede

1 luke

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 5:20

And when he saw their faith, he said “Man your sins are forgiven you.”

 

If you read the story of the man who was paralyzed and whose friends lifted him to the roof and lowered him down so Jesus could heal him, you’ll see that the man wasn’t healed because of his own faith, but because of the faith of his friends.

You may know someone who is going through something so difficult it is beginning to weaken their faith in God.  You might not know what you can do to help.  That’s where your faith comes in to play.  You need to be the bridge to God by praying and interceding for your family and friends.

 

Wait, Hope, Believe

1 psalms 27 14.jpeg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

 

We are not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature.  We get impatient, frustrated, and start to doubt God’s will in our lives.  But we need to be confident in God’s goodness.  We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in his mercy, and believe in his promises!

 

Be an Overcomer

1 romans 12 21

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:21

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

 

It’s easy to see that the devil is busy stirring up evil all over the world.  That’s why we as Christians need to keep vigilant and put on the whole armor of God.  Don’t repay evil for evil, instead love your enemies and pray for them.  Keep doing good deeds and don’t let evil weaken you.  Be strong and courageous in your faith, be an overcomer.

Christ Completes Me

1 ephesians 3 19

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 3:19

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.  Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

 

We were created with a longing for Christ.  We unsuccessfully try to fill this emptiness with people, things, and projects.  But the truth is, only Jesus can satisfy your soul. only Jesus can make you whole.  It’s not enough just to know who he is, you need to personally experience the love of Christ in your life.

Choose Your Words Carefully

1 proverbs  15 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 15:1

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

 

We have a choice in how we handle any situation and we have a choice in what comes out of our mouth.  We can choose gentle words that turn away anger or harsh words that stir up anger.  It may not always be easy but with the help of the Lord we can make the right choice.

God’s Love is Limitless

1 psalm 36 5.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 36:5

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

 

God’s love, is so high, deep, and wide that we cannot even begin to comprehend it.  No matter what you do he will not love you any more and he will not love you any less because his love is not based on you, it’s based on him and God IS love.
