But the word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. 1 Peter 1:25
From Genesis to Revelations, we are presented with God’s gracious, redemptive program for fallen man, as told to us in the Bible – Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture.. that He was buried and rose again according to the Word of Truth.. so that whosoever believes on Him would not perish and pass away, but would receive the forgiveness of sins, and life everlasting. The Word of Life also contains all we need to live a life that glorifies His name – for we have been given all we need for life and godliness.
I have been changed and I’ve seen others changed after studying His Word. The Word of the Lord is pure, perfect and cannot be broken. God’s Word stands fast forever and ever. God’s Word is life giving and life changing. It has the power to impart faith, increase courage and develop character. When we face Goliath with reliance on the Word of God, we are no longer trusting in our own resources but we are trusting in the supernatural resources of God.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been called and chosen, and that I have been born again into Your family. Thank You that I have an inheritance in Christ that cannot fade away. Open the eyes of those that are blinded to the truth of Your Word, so that many may come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. Use me, I pray, as a witness to Your Word of truth and bring many more sons to glory, in the days that lie ahead – this I pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Jesus is not only the way; He is the only way to the Father. Man is totally ruined in sin, and his only hope in a right relationship with God is through the atonement of Jesus Christ. The solution to our problem is a personal relationship with Christ.
We know the way to the Father’s house: Jesus. Know Jesus. Follow Jesus. Obey Jesus. Love Jesus. Jesus is the way because if you know Jesus, then you know the Father. Jesus reveals the truth of God and the life that is found in God. Then live as the way, showing other people Jesus also.
Precious Jesus, how can I ever express my gratitude? Thank You for Your great love for me that led You to Calvary to die in my place. I offer my heart and my life to You as a living sacrifice – it is my reasonable service. Use me to fulfill Your purposes. In the name of Jesus…amen.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel. He was full of zeal for those who didn’t know about Jesus.
We are called to have a certain amount of boldness in our lives. We need to have a fire burning for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our passion should be to see our lost loved ones come to know Jesus Christ as their personal savior. We should look out over our city and weep because so many don’t know the saving truth. The Gospel transforms our lives. God sent his only son to die in our place so that the penalty for our sin could be paid. When this debt is removed it is replaced with true righteousness that brings about a union with God. We can now go to Him freely and worship him. Don’t be ashamed of your faith. Ask for a boldness for the gospel of Jesus Christ that will compel you to share it with others.
Heavenly Father, Help me to be bold when proclaiming the Gospel today. Give me eyes to see those who are waiting to be told. Fill me up with your Spirit so that I will not be ashamed but will gladly proclaim the story of Jesus. Fill my life with the hope of Jesus’ glorious and victorious return so that I might share it with passion and others will know of your grace. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen
Repentance is not a place we visit. It’s a place we live! James McDonald
I’ve had to be broken, stretched, challenged, and changed—and I don’t want to get over it. I want to stay right in that place, and I invite you to join me there.
Why? Because repentance is a life-giving thing. It’s the cry in the mouth of almost every one of God’s messengers in the Bible. They were all calling on God’s people to repent. And not just once in a while. “Repent!” was often the whole message. When John the Baptist showed up, what was his message?“Repent” (Matthew 3:2a). “Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
Lord, thank You for speaking to me by Your Word. I am pierced by the thought that anything in me would resist those moments when You grant me repentance and open my eyes to the truth. I want to experience life deep in Your presence. I want to be ever open to Your correction, longing for the awareness of my unworthiness that draws me to You. Create in me a clean heart, O Lord; whatever it takes. I ask You this in Jesus’ name, amen.
