03/23 Romans 5:8
8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
God showed us how much He loved us. His act of love was something we could understand. Christ, the perfect son of God, died for us while we were still sinners so that we could be forgiven and come into the family of God. Jesus is Lord.
03/22 1 Peter 4:8
8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.
Do you love me? Jesus asked Peter that on the seashore. Do you love me? He is asking you that. Do you love Jesus? If you love Jesus you will love those who live around you. We cannot hate our brethren and say we love Jesus. Nope.
03/21 John 15:3
3 You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you.
We are ready for kingdom living now. I know we still have many experiences to go to grow and mature into Christ but He is our righteousness and our forgiveness and it is totally effective right now. We are often not effective and we may think of Kingdom life that way but it isn’t. Jesus is God’s everything and He has forgiven us completely and totally and forever. Rejoice, Jesus is Lord and He shares His victory with us.
03/20 1 Corinthians 15:57
57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
We don’t think much about the impact of sin on our life and the life of every person ever born. Sin is devastating to our world. Today, this very day, we have forgiveness of our sin in Jesus. The amazing part of this is that we don’t value this amazing act-forgiveness- as we should. We have complete victory in Christ right now. Not after we have accomplished something or done something or created some type of value but right now and forever. He never leaves us. His grace is new and effective every moment. We literally walk in His grace. Therefore this great salvation that we have been given is the most valuable thing that we will ever receive. It is victory over our past and future and equips us to live right now unto eternity in Jesus. Jesus is a great and wonderful Lord. Praise the name of Jesus. He is Lord.
03/19 1 Corinthians 15:55
55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? ”
We are safe in the Lord. He is our protector. He brings us life now and life eternal. We are no longer at the mercy of a chaotic and evil world. The Lord will guide us in the way we should go. Ask Him and He will tell you.
03/18 Proverbs 21:31
31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD.
Victory belongs to the Lord. He knows what is going on and what will happen. The end is as the beginning to the Lord. Turn to Jesus. Give your life to Him. Whatever problem you face let Him give you the guidance and wisdom you need to order your life. Jesus is Lord and He loves you.
03/17 Philippians 4:1
1 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stay true to the Lord. I love you and long to see you, dear friends, for you are my joy and the crown I receive for my work.
Our mission is to glorify the Lord. We do that by exercising the talents that the Lord gave us when He created us. You are valuable. You were created to give value to others. Love the Lord with all of our heart and soul and mind and our neighbor as ourselves.
03/16 Zechariah 9:15
15 The LORD of Heaven’s Armies will protect his people, and they will defeat their enemies by hurling great stones. They will shout in battle as though drunk with wine. They will be filled with blood like a bowl, drenched with blood like the corners of the altar.
His victory is provided to us. We belong to Him and He is going to defend what is his. We need to be sure that we understand that we are bought and paid for by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. HE is with us.
03/15 Joshua 10:8
8 “Do not be afraid of them,” the LORD said to Joshua, “for I have given you victory over them. Not a single one of them will be able to stand up to you.”
As Christians we can lead a life without fear. The Lord will fight our battles for us as long as we are obedient to Him. Do not fear the Angels cried out. Jeasus is alive and here with us.
03/14 Romans 8:31-34
31What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.
The accuser works overtime in our life to try and trip us up. When you are thinking about how horrible you are, introspection is important, that may be the accuser. I’m no good, I’m an over-the-top sinner are probably dictums pointed out by the accuser. He will give anything to trip you up. Do not run those I’m helpless tapes over and over again in your mind. Jesus is Lord. Claim His victory into your life.
