LOVING JESUS 
Luke 7:44-50

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that today, you will receive Christ’s unconditional love and forgiveness. May you experience His forgiveness and be drawn closer to Him. Understand that he who confesses his sins and receives forgiveness for many transgressions loves Him much. But one who justifies himself, confessing only in part, feels little forgiveness and therefore loves little. I pray, then, that you will realize how much you have been forgiven, so that you may experience the immense love that Christ has for you. Be covered with Christ’s forgiveness and love today.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Turn and Comfort

Their insults have broken my heart, and I am in despair. If only one person would show some pity; if only one would turn and comfort me.
~ Psalm 69:20 [ NLT]

Our God is filled with compassion and as His followers we too should be filled with compassion.  One of the ways we can follow closer behind God is by showing mercy to those who need it most.  What does can this look like?  Befriend someone who is bullied and lonely.  Generously babysit for single mothers struggling to make ends meet.  Teach your business knowledge to a fledgeling young graduate.  You have a lot to offer, if only you would turn and comfort them. 

Daily Treasure

Diligence in Worldly Calling

Study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you.

~ 1 Thess 4:11

Midst hourly cares, may love present  
Its incense to thy throne;  
And while the world our hands employs,  
Our hearts be thine alone.

SORROW OVER SIN 
2 Corinthians 7:8-11

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that the Holy Spirit will expose any sin in your life and fill you with godly sorrow regarding that sin. May your sorrow lead you to repentance that leads to salvation, a repentance that leaves no regret. May this godly sorrow produce in you an eagerness to purify yourself and live a clean life. May it bring indignation against sin, and a longing to see righteousness and justice fulfilled. I pray that godly sorrow will change you more and more into the likeness of Christ.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
