Day 298

Today’s Reading – Luke 10
Nevertheless, don’t rejoice because the spirits submit to you.  Rejoice instead that your names are written in heaven. 

Luke 10:20 CEB

It is so easy to get caught up in our  accomplishments or those of others.

We watch athletes win games and we hear them say, “I want to thank God . . .”

Here is Jesus reminding the disciples after they have done great and mighty things . . .

Don’t forget what is truly worth giving thanks for . . . Your Salvation.
As our minds wander towards our plans for Thanksgiving, be mindful to give thanks and rejoice in the salvation you have in Christ.
This is far greater than anything else you might be thankful for.

Day 297

Today’s Reading – John 9-10


Why do you study so much?
He replied, “I already told you, and you didn’t listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples too?”   John 9:27 CEB

There is an old adage that many people miss Heaven by 18 inches – the distance from your head to your heart!

This man understood that when he replied, “I already told you, and you didn’t listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples too?”

I have to admit there is much in the Bible that I do not understand. There is far more that I now understand after taking a step (leap) of faith and trusting God as His word.

We have been at this together now for over 250 days! Are you still reading because you are curious to know more? Are you a skeptic?

The question ages ago is still valid today, Do you want to become his disciples?

Begin a relationship with Jesus.

Ask God to forgive your mistakes and become a follower of Christ.

It’s a small step, but it is the first of many that leads to peace and understanding.

See you tomorrow?

Day 296

Today’s Reading – John 7-8


Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Is there no one to condemn you?”

She said, “No one, sir.”

Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on, don’t sin anymore.”

John 8:10-11 CEB

We spend way too much of our life living in fear and passing judgment.

The church has forgotten this message taught my Christ.

“Neither do I condemn you.”

We waste so much time on issues and miss the relationship.

Jesus will not be your accuser at the time of judgment.

He will be your Savior.

Well? . . . He will be the Savior for those that know Him.

Do you know Him? Do you have a relationship with The Savior?
