God’s Promises

1 -17 18 Hebrews 6 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:18

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.

 

The Bible tells us that God cannot lie. His promises and oaths are unchangeable. We can believe and be confident that if God has made a promise we can count on it and not only can we count on it, we can live our lives by it.

Strength Renewed

1 12-29 1 Isaiah 40 31

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 40:31

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

 

As 2017 comes to a close we can thank God for seeing us through another year.  Though we may have had struggles we made it through them with the help of the Lord.  The new year, 2018 will soon be here and it is a time for new beginnings.  Trust in the Lord to renew your strength and refresh your spirit, and remember you are more than conquerors through God who loves you.

The Indescribable Gift

1 12-12 1 2 Corinthians 9 15

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 9:15

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

 

What God gives us through Christ is more valuable than any other present we could ever receive on Christmas day.  Through God’s gift of His only Son, Jesus Christ our Savior we have been given the gifts of forgiveness, peace, hope, love, righteousness, redemption, joy, victory, and so much more.  Thank Him today for His indescribable gift!

More Blessed to Give

1 12-7 1 Acts 20 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:35

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

 

God has given us more than we could ever deserve and we should follow his example of giving. When we give to the weak we are spreading God’s love and hope into the hearts of those who receive the gift. When you give in a right spirit it truly is an act of worship and pleases the Lord. Let’s not forget that God gives to us so that we may be generous to others.  This Christmas lets focus on giving rather than receiving.

Kindness and Charity

1 12-5 1 Matthew 25 40.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 25:40

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

 

Practice acts of kindness and charity not because of who they are but because of who you are, a child of God.  Share God’s goodness with those in need.  Do what you can as often as you can for as many as you can.

Your Testimony

1 11-28 1 1 Peter 3 15

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 3:15

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.

 

Knowing scriptures will come in time, but you don’t have to have every scripture in the Bible memorized before you can tell someone about Jesus.  Your personal testimony is the most powerful thing you can share with someone.  If someone asks you why you believe in Jesus, tell them your story, tell them what He has done for you and how your life has changed.

Give Hope

1 11-26 1 Psalm 9 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:18

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

 

As we immerse ourselves in the Christmas season let’s not forget those in need.  There are so many ways we can help the poor.  Ask God to lead you in finding a way to help those in need this holiday season and throughout the year. Let God work through you as you donate your time, money, food, or services. A little goes a long way and gives so much hope to many.
