I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people-
Intercession is prayer said on behalf of and for other people. God wants all people to be saved so we should be praying for everyone we know and even those we don’t know. We can pray for their needs, their health and most importantly for their salvation. When we pray for others God’s love works through us. Who will you pray for today?
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
Salvation is a gift from God. We cannot buy it, earn it, work for it or get it based on our own abilities. Through the plan of God to save us, Jesus paid for this gift when He died on the cross for our sins. Everything you have, everything you are, and everything you do is all because of God’s grace on you.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
Wake up with praise on your lips, focused on God. Start your day right and receive the blessings the Lord has in store for you today. Each day is loaded with blessings of joy, peace, mercy, grace and salvation!
Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.
There is no other way to be saved. You won’t find salvation in idols, in man, not even in yourself. Only God can save you. Seek the Lord while he may be found, call on him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
The resurrection of Christ gives us the hope that if we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, at the second coming of Jesus Christ those who are sleeping in Christ will be resurrected and those who are alive will rise to meet him in the clouds! (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
From the end of the earth will I cry to thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
When you feel far from God, when you feel alone, when your heart feels sad and overwhelmed, turn to God. He is always there for you and everything will be alright because He is in control. Let your heart desire to be led by God. Ask Him to strengthen your faith as you turn to Him, for He alone is your rock and your salvation.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
The star was shining brightly in the city of David on the night the Savior was born. God sent His only Son to offer the grace of the gospel, eternal life and salvation, that the world through him might be saved. The birth of Christ, the Messiah, was proclaimed by angels to the shepherds who went to Bethlehem and found Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus lying in the manger. On Christmas Eve let’s stop for a moment and reflect on the greatest gift ever given, Jesus Christ our Savior.
