Turn to God for Salvation

Isaiah 45 22

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 45:22

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 Has RISEN!  

Matthew 28 6

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 28:6

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)

The Rock

Psalm 61 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 61:2

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.

O Holy Night

1 12-24 1 John 3 17

 

Verse of the Day:  John 3:17

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.

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.

Joy to the World, the Lord is Come!

1 12-16 1 Luke 2 10-11.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 2:10-11

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

 

Over 2000 years ago an angel appeared to the shepherds bringing good news. God had a divine plan for our salvation and Jesus was born to lay down His life for all people. The promised Messiah, the Savior had been born.  The good news of the Savior’s birth is the reason for great joy and celebration!
