Most of us do not value things that come to us freely and yet the greatest things in life are free – the love of God and love of the heart.

Because we are focused on asking God for this, for that, for the other, we are quick to forget that actually God has given us HIMSELF, freely.

God Almighty formed you, He sent His Son to die for you to save you from sin and gave you His Spirit to dwell in your heart. Through Jesus Christ, His Son, you can have a special relationship with God, heart to heart. Whatever position or condition you find yourself today, you can know God personally.

This is the promise God gave in Jeremiah 31:33-34

“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
    after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds
    and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.
no longer will they teach their neighbor,
    or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
    from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the Lord.

You should ask yourself, if God gave you His most precious possession, why would He withhold from you, anything of less value?

The God who created you now dwells within you. This is the greatest miracle.

Lord Jesus, thank You for making it possible for me to be saved! Thank You for this greatest gift. Help me to appreciate this greatest miracle, in Your holy name.

THE SACRIFICE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

“There is no time to do what is right. We must set our heart to obey the Word of God, all the time. God’s kind of lifestyle calls us to do what is right in the sight of God at all times, even though it is contrary to what we naturally want to do. Choosing to do what is right is a great test to the flesh.

What is the sacrifice of righteousness? Choosing to do God’s will rather than our own. When our flesh says hate, God says love. It takes sacrificial love to love your enemy and to pray for them. These are the weapons of righteousness. This is the sacrifice that Jesus looks at and rewards. Even though that might not be a grand, or outward sacrifice, it is what Jesus values.”

LIFE ANEW

“When we talk of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are talking of the rare opportunity He has given to all believers to experience a new beginning – a situation in which every dead area of our lives receives life anew.

We are dead to our past and alive to our future. Sin’s power over us is broken and we now put on Christ’s new life: we live in Him, move in Him and have our being in Him. Herein lies the significance of resurrection.”

THE LORD HAS CHASED YOUR ENEMY

“How many of us like the people within the dying city, struck by famine, give in to fear, desperation and refuse to venture outside when God has chased our enemy away? Fear can cripple and torment us, and rob us of life’s opportunities. How many minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and even years have been wasted due to fear.”
