1 112313 JOY

I am so grateful for another day and another chance to share with my brothers and sisters in Christ. This is a day all about faith and what comes from it. Do you have any?

Today’s Prayer

Father, help us realize that when we accept Your forgiveness for our sins, even though we need no longer to be haunted by guilt, this doesn’t eliminate the results of our sins. We may have to deal with the results for a long time; perhaps forever. Cause us to stop and think before we carelessly or purposely depart from Your ways. Draw us closer, Lord, and protect us from ourselves. In the wonderful name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Faith Brings Joy

Romans 5:1-11 – 

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of highest privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us–they help us learn to endure. And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation of salvation. And this expectation will not disappoint us. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, no one is likely to die for a good person, though someone might be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s judgment. For since we were restored to friendship with God by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be delivered from eternal punishment by his life. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God–all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God.

The beautiful thing about this adventure called faith is that we can count on Him never to lead us astray. ~Charles (Chuck) Swindoll~
