Loving Father I thank You that I am Your child and I want to press on, in my Christian life, to become more and more like the Lord Jesus – but I know that it will require me to put my hand to the plow and press on with patient endurance – which only comes from You alone. I pray that I may not lose heart or grow weary in doing the good works that You have prepared for me to do, and pray that in due time, I may reap a fruitful reward, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Let us always trust in the Lord with all our heart and do not lean on our own understanding, knowing that without faith it is impossible to please Him. But let us never forget that it is God Who said, I AM everything you need – and I AM a Rewarder of those that diligently seek. Let us always believe it with all our heart – for this is well-pleasing to the Lord.
Father I realize how quickly and easily I can move from trusting You to doubting Your Word, when things do not go the way that I expect. I pray that like Abraham and the men and women of faith in Hebrews, my trust in You will not falter and continue to grow. Help me to earnestly seek You day by day, for I know that only as Christ lives in and through me, by faith, can I be pleasing in Your sight – in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Lord, Give me the strength to not only confess that before anyone who asks, but to live in such a way that they ask me about my hope and my confidence and my salvation. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. Amen
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.
