Gifts from Above

1 12-9 1 James 1 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

 

God is good and every gift from him is good and perfect. Think about all good in your life, your job, your home, your family, and know it’s all a gift from God.  Think about the spiritual gifts you’ve been given, they too are a gift from God. Now think about the greatest gift of all, the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, they all come from our heavenly Father.  As we go through this holiday season let’s not forget what it’s really about and remember to be grateful for all the gifts from above.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 9:  Thankful for Everything

1 11-22 1 Ephesians 5 20.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 5:20

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.

The Hope of Eternal Life  

1 11-7 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Revelation 21:4

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

 

There is no denying that evil exists in this world.  Some may ask why God allows horrible events to happen.  The truth is we may never have the answer to this question.  What we do know is that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to offer salvation to all. Even though we may suffer in this world, as Christians, we have the hope of eternal life with God.

Now Is the Right Time    

1 11-5 1

 

Verse of the Day:   2 Corinthians 6:2

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.  I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

 

God had been tugging at my heart for many years but I was stubborn and wanted to do things my way. Eventually, I gave in and surrendered my life to God. It was the best decision I ever made. NOW is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed his call, today is the time to be saved.  Don’t put it off until it’s too late.

Brag About Jesus

1 11-4 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Jeremiah 9:23-24

This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.

 

Your true wisdom and value is not found in your own understanding, power, or riches.  It is found in knowing God and in salvation.  I cannot boast about anything I have but I can boast about knowing the Lord. I can boast about His kindness, justice, and righteousness. Everything I have and everything I am is because of Him and because of His unfailing love and mercy.  If you’re going to brag about something, brag about Jesus.

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.

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 12:2

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and will not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.

 

With all the uncertainty in the world around us we can put our trust in God our Savior. We can face anything and not be afraid because God is our strength and our salvation.  God loves you and he is for you.  He has always been there for you in the past and he will always be there for you in the future.
