Serving

1 12-4 1 Mark 10 45

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 

Even though Jesus was born King, by His own example He teaches us humility.  The Bible says that Jesus did not come to be served but to serve.  As ambassadors of Christ our lives should exemplify His traits and should reflect Christ in us. Let’s follow His example of humility by serving the less fortunate this holiday season and throughout the year.

Our Daily Bread

1 11-12 1 Matthew 4 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 4:4

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

 

Just like bread (food) supports life to your body, the Word of God supports life to your soul. Your body can’t go too long without nourishment and without food for prolonged periods your body becomes weak. It’s the same for your soul, without regular nourishment your soul too will become weak. You don’t just eat on Sunday, why would you only feed your soul one day out of the week? Nourish your soul by reading the Word of God daily.

Peace

1 10-24 1

 

Verse of the Day:   John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

 

Things are going to happen in life that make you sad, scared, or are just hard to get through.  When your heart is hurting, troubled, or afraid turn to Jesus, he’ll give you peace beyond compare.

Gentle and Humble

1 10-17 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

 

If your life feels out of control, in turmoil, or you feel angry Jesus is the answer.  Jesus was a great example of how to be gentle and humble.  Follow His example and you will find rest for your soul. Gentle = kind, mild in temperament; Humble = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance.

Know Your Worth

1 9-26 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:10

A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies.

 

Your worth is found on the inside not on the outside.  Your character is worth more than fleeting beauty.  Nobel characteristics like honesty, generosity, and courage are more important than your dress size, bank account, or looks.  Your worth is found in God and your relationship with him, not in the opinions of others.  Jesus paid the ultimate price for you because you are worth far more than rubies.

To Seek and To Save

1 9-21 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

 

God loved us so much he made a way for us to be saved.  Jesus came to this world to seek and save the lost, to offer us salvation.  He came to rescue us from a life of sin.  As Christians, we need to share this good news with the world while there is still time.

Set Free

Verse of the Day:  John 8:32

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

 

Christ has the power to make you free and those that are set free by the Son are truly free.  If you accept his teaching as truth and also obey his teaching you are true disciples.  You will know the truth because your eyes will open to a greater understanding of the truth which will set you free from the bondage of sin.
