always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am truly thankful for everything God has done for me and the plans He has for my future. I am thankful for everything He has blessed me with, it’s more than I deserve. I’m thankful for my salvation and for the relationship I have with my Savior. Above all else, I’m thankful for God’s love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness. I give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart.
For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.
Rituals and sacrifices have their place in organized religion but it is useless without true worship. God wants you to have faith in Christ, with repentance for sin. More than anything he wants you to know him on a personal level and wants you to sincerely love him with all your heart.
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.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry
As believers in Jesus Christ we have been made righteous through him and not by our own doing. We have been adopted into the family of God the Father. Because of his grace and love for us he watches over us and protects us, and when we cry out to him, he hears us.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for you to be saved from death and be with him in heaven for all eternity. There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son. Not by works, merit, or personal sacrifices. Jesus is the only way, he is our Savior, and there is no other way.
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Every believer at one time or another has doubts about their purpose. As long as you still have some faith God will work with what you have. It’s not about your power or your strength, it’s about having faith in the power of Christ. When you feel doubt and fear creeping in ask God to help you overcome your unbelief and increase your faith.
When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”
