I am thankful for the Lord Jesus Christ and his saving grace. He is the true King.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
There is always an opportunity to tell your child that you love her or him.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
The Lord Christ has quenched my thirst today. Many people I know are so angry about the election. I’m focusing on Jesus, my wife, and my daughter.
“Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person,
do not associate with one easily angered”
Considering the upcoming election, these words of God remind us that the company we keep matters. Stay calm.
“15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.”
Jesus is a great savior and I am a great sinner. The Gospel needs to change our whole personality–the way we live, think, breath, understand, and interact with one another. Blessings to Christ the Savior!
“ Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
Living through Christ brings great benefits.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
So many patterns of this world that I can conform to, but I need to look higher and for something better.
