A Promise of Mercy (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 191)

A Promise of Mercy

Matthew 5:7 (NLT)
God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Parents and teachers often teach young children the Golden Rule: to treat others as you would like to be treated. Good people want to extend kindness, grace, and mercy to others because it is a two-way street. Reaping what we sow is a universal law that always proves to be true.  Read more…

The Battle of Waiting (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 61)

The Battle of Waiting

Romans 5:3 (NLT)
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.

One of the greatest battles we will ever fight is learning to develop patience. We don’t like to wait. We want everything now. We strive to make everything go our way. This is the way most of us live our lives — fighting to get situations to turn out in our favor and to get people to do what we want them to do. It’s an intense struggle, and one that most of us rarely win. Read more…

Faith in the Storm (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 44)

Faith in the Storm

Joshua 17:18 (NLT)
The forests of the hill country will be yours as well. Clear as much of the land as you wish, and take possession of its farthest corners. And you will drive out the Canaanites from the valleys, too, even though they are strong and have iron chariots.

There is always room for progress. The top of the mountain is filled with very few people who have struggled to make it there. However, the journey to the top of the mountain is littered with people who are still trying, and some who have given up. Seeing life as it could be is almost impossible when in the middle of some difficult moment. But that is why we are encouraged to have faith. Read more…

Justified by Faith (40 Days of Easter Truth #31)

eastertruth31

Easter Focus Passage: Romans 3:21–28

21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.

22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—

26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith.

28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

Easter Truth – DAY THIRTY-ONE:

When we believe in Jesus Christ for salvation, we acknowledge three things: (1) that we are sinners in need of a Saviour; (2) that we are redeemed through the blood of Christ; and (3) that we are justified by God’s grace and not by our works. Justification is the act of being made righteous in the sight of God. God removes our sin and guilt through the atoning blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ and declares us to be righteous. Therefore, we are no longer debtors to sin but are alive unto God through Jesus Christ. Read more…

Is There Enough Evidence to Convict You for Being a Christian? (40 Days of Easter Truth #19)

eastertruth19

Easter Focus Passage: 1 Peter 4:12-16

12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.

13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.

15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler.

16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. Read more…
