Today's Good News


08/14          Ephesians 1:22 

God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 


We come together in the church. This is the body of Christ.  It is the place where the Lord works in those gathered there to accomplish His work in the world.  There are no Lone Rangers in the family of God.  He created us to work together and grow in Christ so that we can successfully combat the evil schemes of the world.  Go to church.  Be in Church. Let the Lord use you in the body of Christ. 




08/13          Ephesians 1:21 

Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 


Our God is big.  His love for us all encompassing.  He loves us.  Jesus loves you.  My prayer for you is that you will experience and know this love in a way that equips you to be the person the Lord created you to be.  I am praying for your health.  I am praying for your joy and peace.  Jesus is Lord. 




08/12          Ephesians 1:19-20 

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 


How great is our God? Majestic and mighty He is the only God. He is faithful and true.  His love overflows to us His creation.  He made a plan before the foundations of the universe was set and this plan was for our salvation in Christ and Christ would live in us.  He brings us into His family.  Praise the Lord, praise His name, praise His plan.  With everything in us praise the Lord for He is worthy of all of our praise. 




08/11          Ephesians 1:18 

I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. 


Praying for you

Knowing you will have need

If not now, tomorrow

Our life is quick, hard, and chaotic

We are at our best when we pray for one another

Pray for your family, your work, your country, your leaders

Please be sure to pray for me

Our prayers change us and help people

It is important that we pray




08/10          Ephesians 1:15-17 

Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God.


I pray for you.  I don’t know you but I pray for you-that your love for Jesus will grow and that you will learn to praise Him with all of your mind, body and spirit-Praise the Lord.  I pray for your family, your friends and your growing relationship with Jesus. Praise the Lord.  Praise Him with everything in you, praise the Lord. 




08/09          Ephesians 1:14 

The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him. 


Praise the Lord.  Praise Him for today-for forgiveness of past sin and His power to live today.  Praise the Lord.  Praise Him for the breath of life.  Praise Him for family, friends and your future.  Praise the Lord.  Praise Him with your heart, with your mind and singing.  Praise the Lord.  Praise Him for He is worthy of all of our praise.  When we know Him, our praise becomes as natural as breathing.  Praise the Lord. 




08/08          Ephesians 1:11-13 

Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. 12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God. 13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. 


We are given the Holy Spirit of God as the first part of our inheritance in Christ.  We are filled with the Spirit of God as we live in Christ. Father today help me to live for you. Speak to my sinfulness and pull me out of the herd of evil doers.  I need you Lord Jesus so that I might be equipped and ready to deal with sin in my life. Forgive me Lord, today mark me with your forgiveness. 




08/07          Ephesians 1:9-10 

God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. 10 And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. 


You came to me.  Thank you, Lord.  Help me to grow and become more like you Lord each day.  I want to change, Jesus, help me change.  I want joy and peace-Thank you Lord for hearing me and giving me the joy and peace of a life that is in your hands.  Thank you, Jesus.




08/06          Ephesians 1:8

He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. 


Today Lord, I’m not feeling so smart.  Help me become the person I know that I was meant to be.  Help me to care for those around me.  Give me wisdom, mercy and grace for this today.  Praise the name of the Lord-JESUS.  Praise you Jesus.  Praise you. 





08/05          Ephesians 1:6-7 

So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. 7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 


Jesus died for me and you. He knew our sin, our great our debt and the only thing that would pay that debt was His shed blood. 

Thank you Lord Jesus for the Gospel-YOUR LIFE-DEATH-RESURRECTION AND THE PAYMENT OF OUR SIN-You paid it all-Thank you Lord for this mercy gift.  Thank you for bringing us into YOUR family.  Thank you Lord.  Thank you! Thank you!
