Hope of Eternal Life with God

Revelation 21 4

 

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.

Change Begins with Ourselves

2 Chronicles 7 14.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: 2 Chronicles 7:14

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.

 

The lack of morality and having no relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today.  How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God and turn from our wicked ways.  If we do these things God will hear us, forgive us and heal our land. To change the world, we must first change ourselves.

Brag About the Lord

Jeremiah 9 23-24.jpg

 

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 the Lord.

The Golden Rule

Matthew 7 12.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 7:12

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

 

People think the “Golden Rule” was made up by man, but it’s actually Biblical. It’s so basic and fundamental that we teach it to our children yet, we as adults sometimes forget the principle.  Treat others with fairness and mercy just as you would like to be treated.

God’s Grace

Verse of the Day:   2 Corinthians 12:9

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
God’s grace, favor, loving-kindness and mercy helps you to make it through anything.  His strength and power shows itself the most when you need Him the most.  When you are weak, depend on God more because the more you depend on God, the more strength He will give you to make it through anything.  The world we live in has changed drastically but God never will.  He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Praise

Psalm 33 4

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 33:4

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

 

Every word, every promise, everything He does is right and true.  We can have confidence and believe it all because He is faithful. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth.  He is deserving of all praise for His truth, faithfulness and mercy.

Apply God’s Word

James 1 22

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:22

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

 

If you are listening to the word of God but not applying it to your life and expecting your life to change you’re fooling yourself.  That would be like reading about a diet then eating junk food and expecting to lose weight.  You have to apply it to your life, you have to change your habits and it has to be a way of life not just a Sunday event.
