He Sees and Hears You

Psalm 34 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:15

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry

 

As believers in Jesus we have been made righteous through Christ on Calvary and not by our own doing.  We have, therefore, been adopted into the family of God the Father. We can rest assured that He watches over and protects us and when we cry out to Him we know He hears us.

No Other Way

John 14 6

 

Verse of the Day: John 14:6

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 us 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.

Mercy

Titus 3 5 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Titus 3:5

He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.

 

We’re not saved by anything righteous we’ve done, but by what Jesus did when He died on the cross.   God mercifully sent His only Son to pay for our sins so that we could be made right with Him.

Peace for Your Stress

Philippians 4 7

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Everyone deals with stress now and then and some people deal with it on a regular basis.  Meditating on God’s Word and praying help us to deal with external stressors.  We also have to do our part in taking care of our bodies.  We need to practice a healthy lifestyle, eat right, and exercise.  Give your worries over to God, put your trust and confidence in Him and let the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, bring his peace into your life.

Love is Obedience

1 12-27 1 John 14 23.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  John 14:23

Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”

 

If you really love Jesus, you will obey His teaching.  Saying you love Him is easy, anyone can say they love Jesus, proving you do is another matter. When you understand and appreciate what Jesus did for you at the cross it changes you, you’re no longer the same.  True love and gratitude responds in obedience and dedication and with passion.

We Three Kings

1 12-22 1 Matthew 2 11.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 2:11

And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.

 

The magi had followed the star to Jerusalem where they asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?”  Upon finding Jesus they fell down and worshiped Him bestowing honor to Him, acknowledging Him as King. After they worshiped Him they presented their gifts.  The three gifts had spiritual meaning, first gold, a gift for royalty, which represents His Kingship. Second, frankincense, a symbol of his priestly role and mediator between God and man. And finally, myrrh which is a burial ointment because Jesus would die for our salvation.

Away in a Manger

 

1 12-19 1 Luke 2 7

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 2:7

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

 

On the very first “Christmas” Jesus was laid in a manger because there was no room at the inn.  What about this Christmas, is there room for Jesus in your heart?  Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart will you let Him in, or like the inn keeper, will you tell Him you have no room?
