God Loves Me

TODAY’S VERSE
This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
I John 4:10

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is one thing to “say” you love someone. It is another to really love them. The real language of love is not found in some poetic phrases. The language of love is in our actions. Love needs to be a verb. So when I say, “God loves you!” I am referring to much more than some simple sentiment. I am referring to the fact that you are important to God. You are special to Him. Paul shares that “God demonstrates His love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” When we are at our worst, when we are farthest from Him, His love for us is still there. God sent Jesus to be the sacrifice for our sinfulness, so we could have a legitimate relationship with Him. So we could experience His love and begin to express our love back to Him. Have you received His love? Have you made it personal? If not, acknowledge the fact that He loves you today. Thank Him for providing a way for you to come before His Holiness, cleansed, forgiven, and as His child. Jesus said it best, “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, God gave the right to become children of God.” Christmas is a special time when we reflect on the fact that Christ came to earth to sacrifice Himself for us. If you believe that He died on the cross for you, then receive His death as a substitute for you by acknowledging it as a fact and thanking Him for it today.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I have heard the words, “God loves me” before. Today I want to make it personal. I want You to know how thankful I am that You sent Jesus to be my substitute, so I could come before You, holy and blameless. So that I could be “born again” as Your child. Today, I receive these words into my heart, “God loves me!” Help me to really understand it and all the joy that it brings. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

The Christ who came to earth in the form of a baby became a man who became our Savior. May you truly know the love of God this Christmas day.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

TODAY’S VERSE
“I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!
(NLT) Luke 2:10-11

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Christmas is a joyous occasion. Around the world today people are sharing love with each other, share gifts, food and fellowship. It is a treasured Holiday. But in all the excitement of the Holiday, let’s not forget that Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The wonderful truth is that God came in the person of Jesus Christ so we could have a relationship with Him. Christ came to become the Savior of the world. Jesus Himself said, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” Today, take a moment and thank God for this special day. Let us say with the angels on that Holy day, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, Thank You for this special day that we set aside to celebrate with friends and family. But most of all dear God, thank You for the birth of Your precious Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
AMEN
