TODAY’S VERSE
Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.
I Timothy 4:12 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I remember as a young person how today’s passage shaped my life. It was exciting to be challenged to live like a believer should, even though I was young. God cared about my behavior. He did not discount me because I was young. He gave me everything I needed to live the life He wanted me to. Well, today, four decades later, God still cares about my behavior. I am not off the hook because I am older. I still need to live the way God wants me to. And how exciting to know that God still empowers me by and through His Holy Spirit. Today, no matter what your age, let God help you be an example of what a believer should be in the way you talk, live, have faith, love and keep yourself pure.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for giving me everything I need to live for You. I pray that Your Holy Spirit will guide me and empower me to live, love, and have faith in a way that pleases You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus.
Colossians 3:17 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We have choices. I wish it was as easy as becoming a Christian and from then on everything we do would be pleasing in His eyes. But it doesn’t happen that way. No more than getting married guarantees that everything we do represents what a good spouse should be like. Much of what we do is far from God’s desire. Yes, we make a choice to become a Christian and it sets our course. But then we must live it out everyday. But how? How do we live the way He wants us to? By maintaining a vibrant relationship with Him; being purposeful in the way we live; and being conscious of the love He has for us. This helps us make the daily choices we need to be His disciple. Today, may God give us the wisdom, courage and strength to live for Him so we can say with Paul, “Whatever I do or say, I do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me filter what I say and do so that my life will be pleasing to You. Guide me by Your word. Empower me through Your Holy Spirit I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. – You will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.
Luke 6:27-28, 35-36 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are causes, and then there are causes! Jesus, in one simple discourse, defines what it means to be Christian. Christ lived and died by this creed. There has never been a greater cause than to follow Jesus in His love for mankind. And yet Jesus explains that it wasn’t His idea. He says if we love our enemies, if we love the unlovely, if we love those that curse us, hurt us and hate us, then we will be living like God the Father does. We are so shallow in our definition of love. We call it fellowship. We create country club churches where we love one another but the rest of humanity only sees a small portion of our compassion. But Jesus railed against that selfish kind of love. He said, “If you love only those who love you, why should you get credit for that? Even sinners love those who love them!” If we want to be His follower, if we want to be truly acting like our Father in Heaven then we must love others, even those who are our enemies! We must be compassionate toward all people, the way He is compassionate. Today, let God love the way He desires to love. Let Him love, even the undeserving, with your hands, your feet and your heart.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, Your ways are not my ways. I need Your Holy Spirit to fill me and pour into me the great love that You have. Help me love the way You do. Help me be compassionate to others the way You have been toward me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus never intended us to be church dwellers. He wanted us to be field workers. He didn’t go around setting up new synagogues in His name so we could worship. Instead, He called us to participate in His mission to reach a lost world with the good news of the gospel. Now assembling together to worship, learn and encourage one another is definitely important. Right after today’s passage the author writes, “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another.” However, if you really want to know what is near to the heart of Jesus, read Matthew chapter nine. Matthew wrote, “Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness.” The author of Hebrews compels us to do the same today. He wrote, “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” Today, let’s be active in our Savior’s mission.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, Your compassion is boundless and Your mission is clear. Help me to live like You. Help me love and serve others like You did. Guide me, Lord, and empower me with Your Holy Spirit I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
I John 1:8-9 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes it is so hard to deal with our inconsistencies. You know those times we stumble, do the things we shouldn’t and then kick ourselves. Thank God there is a better way to handle our “sins”. The secret is to stop when we have a moment of sanity. When the Holy Spirit convicts us, we need to confess to God and acknowledge our wrongdoing. “Father, I was wrong, forgive me!” Next, we need to repent, that is to make up our mind that with God’s grace we will stop. Finally, we need to renew our commitment and make steps toward correcting our behavior. Jude says that we can have confidence in having God’s help. He writes, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.” God is able to help us live in victory and freedom. The outcome is that we can walk in forgiveness and freedom. Yes, we have sinned, but God has forgiven and cleansed us from all wrongdoing. Today, let us live in true forgiveness and freedom.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for those sins that so easily trip me up. I confess my wrongdoing. Help me, Lord. Keep me from falling. Cleanse my heart as I renew my commitment to You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.
Psalms 39:7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Hope is only as good as the person you hope in. Blind hope is not hope; it is credulity, the state of willingness to believe in one or many people or things in the absence of reasonable proof or knowledge. We don’t just hope for hope’s sake. Our hope is not in a religion. It is not a creed or tradition. No, we believe in the one and true God, the God who is there. A moral and loving God. The God of eternity who has a much broader perspective on life than we could ever imagine. We come to our loving God and put our faith in Him; so when we need hope, we simply have to draw from our Spiritual experience and put our trust in Him. Today, join the Psalmist in his answer to the question, “Where do I put my hope?” Answer God by saying, “My hope is in you!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me when I doubt You. My worry is testament to my lack of faith or trust I should have in You. Today, dear Lord, I come again and renew my hope in You. I reaffirm my faith and put my trust in Your love and almighty power. My hope is in You, my Lord and my God.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Every day is a new day. It is a do over. That means that today you can choose to move toward peace. You do this by trusting God. Trusting that no matter how you feel, no matter what your circumstances that God can still give you peace. He promises. Now peace may not take away the problems you are facing. Peace may not change any consequences you have or change the events of the past. But the peace that God offers passes our understanding. It keeps our hearts and mind. It supersedes our circumstances. It brings hope where there seems to be no hope. Today, come to God, fix your thoughts on Him, trust Him and He will fill your heart with peace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, you know my heart. You know my circumstances. You know my needs. I come to You today and am fixing my thoughts on You. I ask for Your peace to fill my heart and mind. In Jesus’ name I pray.
AMEN
